Reliability engineers are often focused on using data based decisions to identify the "bad actors" in the plant based on lost production, maintenance and repair cost, and/or safety or environmental criteria. Kelm Engineering, LLC is well equipped to identify solutions to high profile reliability problems on a variety of rotating and reciprocating machinery.
It is common that identifying solutions can require creative field testing to provide additional data to define the range of normal or occasional operating conditions, or may involve complex analytical skills such as finite element analysis to determine stresses or dynamic response. We have the skills and tools to provide the focused problem solving skills that many reliability engineers either need help with or simply don't have the time to complete.
Many problems don't require a single analysis/solution approach. Many projects we have completed have involved a mixture of analytical engineering along with field testing. We are highly skilled and experienced engineers with a proven track record of identifying practical solutions to a variety of machinery problems using an effective mix of analytical tools and field testing.
Common problems solved include:
