Despite best efforts to avoid them, failures are still a common occurrence in mills. Most are not catastrophic, but eliminating them allows a mill to operate at a steadier state and maintain a higher production level.
AFT Service Specialists have been trained in the methodology of Root Cause Failure Analysis (RCFA) - a process for identifying the basic cause(s) for an equipment failure or process disturbance, and then setting a course for corrective or preventive actions.
An RCFA program would include process data analysis, evaluating operating and maintenance procedures, testing if needed, and corrective action recommendations. Our goal is to assist you in identifying and correcting the root causes of events, rather than simply addressing the symptoms.
