Types of Machinery
There are many types of machinery that require regular upkeep. Some common types include:
- Boiler Tubes
- Pressure Vessels
Any mechanical failure that involves heated or pressurized machinery is especially dangerous. Pipes, boilers, and other pressurized pieces of machinery are often responsible for catastrophic explosions and other devastating accidents. In order to protect workers from injury and death, oil refineries and industrial plants should keep records of regular maintenance checks and repairs made on these machines.
