The size of a motor doesn’t matter if it is a critical motor. In this case study had 2 hp motor failed it would have cost $40,000 a day in lost electricity production. See how the technicians using, newly acquired data analysis knowledge, discovered a heat problem with the motor before it failed.

Balancing cost reduction and efficiency improvement targets is a common source of frustration for maintenance and engineering managers. For facilities that operate continuously with no window for unplanned shutdowns, poor reliability and availability of machinery is far more serious, but even in factories with regular opportunities for maintenance, recovery can still be expensive and time consuming.
