Predictive maintenance is a systematic method of monitoring and trending rotating equipment on a regularly scheduled basis to determine the condition of machines subject to wear and tear. On-line detection, trending, and diagnostics methods provide an early warning of potential problems and virtually eliminate the need for periodic disassembly and inspection, and the possibility of an unexpected breakdown.
