Hot can mean a lot of things to your business. It can mean high production, high sales, hot temperatures and high pressure to perform at peak levels. Most manufacturing facilities see a huge portion of their business take place during the hot summer months. It’s no wonder we call them Red Hot Summers.
In conjunction with increased production rates and goals plants often experience higher failure rates on manufacturing equipment. This can be due to the accelerated use of their equipment or due to external temperature increases. These hot summers can wreak havoc on equipment.
It’s a proven fact that failure rates exponentially heighten with temperature increases. Even when temperature changes don’t cause immediate failures they still significantly reduce the life span of your equipment. Heat can also reduce design tolerances, cause damage to additional equipment and negatively affect the speed, power and reliability of components and systems.
Electronic units such as drives, power supplies, soft starts, HMI’s, circuit boards, servos, PLC’s and many other electronics are especially susceptible to failure when exposed to higher temperatures. In additional to electronic failures we often see motors fail at greater rates during summer months. For every 10 degrees hotter a motor runs the life cycle of that motor is decreased by half. Don’t be caught off guard when your red hot summer causes Hot Rush failures.
