Some manufacturers, like Facadexs can even provide service from a distance when any problems occur with a BMU. They can remotely access the control box of the machine and check all values, statistics and current status. This enables them to spot any problems and provide advice on whether a mechanic is needed. Sometimes, they can solve the issues themselves by making software changes and no mechanic is needed, saving on costly down-time.
Periodic maintenance activities
In general, a BMU has to be checked thoroughly (at least) once per year by well-trained service technicians. During this inspection, lubricants are replaced or filled, parts are cleaned and other small work is performed.
Besides these smaller checks, load tests are performed as well to determine whether the machine is as strong when it was installed and still complies with the (local) standards and safety regulations. Also, any damaged or worn parts are replaced to make sure the machines are safe to use and the chance of mechanical failure is minimized.
