Manufacturing Company Reduces Equipment Failures with Equifactor® Troubleshooting & RCA


While many are familiar with TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis, fewer know about how Equifactor® Equipment Troubleshooting reduces equipment failures. One manufacturing company faced the challenge of keeping equipment up and running, took action with Equifactor®, and improved equipment reliability.


A manufacturing company experienced a significant number of failures on fans/blowers used as part of the manufacturing process. As experienced TapRooT® Users, they looked to Equifactor® Troubleshooting Tables for guidance. The Equifactor® Tables help maintenance and reliability experts find the physical cause of machinery failure. However, the specific type of fan/blower this company used was not listed in the Tables. 


The Equifactor® Troubleshooting Tables cover a wide range of equipment types, including various types of pumps, compressors, motors, valves, and turbines. One of the powerful features of the Equifactor® Software Module is the ability to develop custom troubleshooting tables specific to the unique equipment at your plant. The TapRooT® Team assisted them in creating a template to import their custom tables developed by their in-house experts for their unique equipment.


Customization of the Equifactor® Troubleshooting Tables helped this company significantly reduce fan/blower failures as well as improve PM consistency. When experiencing multiple failures on the same piece of equipment, it’s always a great idea to add those custom pieces of equipment to your troubleshooting tables first!
