Predictive Maintenance Services by Failure Prevention Associates, Inc.

Based in Houston, Texas. Our on-site vibration analysis service saves you time and money with less unplanned downtime.

We have the certified and experienced analysts who can rapidly deploy to your site and asses the condition your critical machinery using vibration analysis, electric motor testing, ultrasound detection, thermal imaging and more.

FPA offers bad actor trouble shooting or monthly, quarterly, and semi-annual condition monitoring services. This saves you man hours  while obtaining veteran expertise with advanced condition monitoring technology. The time and effort to create and maintain an in-house team can be difficult.

Failure Prevention Associates offers an extensive range of predictive maintenance services including:

  • Vibration Analysis

    Our vibration analysis services include monitoring Rotating Equipment (e.g. cooling towers, gear boxes, pumps electric motors, blowers, turbines, etc.) and acceptance testing for new equipment installations (building floors, piping, rotating equipment). If vibration monitoring is crucial to your facility, we can test it for you. Predictive Maintenance Services by Failure Prevention Associates, Inc.

Case Studies: How we've helped companies keep running and their profits high.

From sugar plants in California to Oil Refineries in Alaska, we pride ourselves on cracking problems no one could.

  • Laser Structural and Corrosion Mapping

    3D laser scanning provides precise measurements for corrosion mapping, tank or vessel settling, mechanical damage, volumetric studies and reverse engineering. Laser Structural and Corrosion Mapping

  • Reliability & Predictive Maintenance Consultants

    Reliability initiatives often fail. Yet they are re-started time and again be new teams or senior management. Using the Uptime Elements, we can assess your site to see what the next step needs to be to move your program to the next level.

  • Thermography

    Our best practice analysis of electrical systems, switches, transformers, etc. Predictive Maintenance Services by Failure Prevention Associates, Inc.

  • Electric Motor Evaluation

    A best practice analysis for electric motor, generators & transformers condition monitoring. Our MCA tests stator windings, rotor, air gap, insulation, power quality and power circuit. We offer both offline and online testing of your electrical assets. Predictive Maintenance Services by Failure Prevention Associates, Inc.

  • Ultrasound Detection

    Our ultrasound analysis uses best practices for finding compressed air/gas leaks, vacuum leak, electrical faults (arcing, tracking & destructive corona) and monitoring slow-speed bearings that cannot be evaluated using traditional vibration analysis. Predictive Maintenance Services by Failure Prevention Associates, Inc.

  • Precision Laser Alignment

    We use best practices for the laser alignment of motor shafts or belts. Done properly during installation or after a repair, laser alignment helps eliminate stress on shafts, couplings and bearings. As well as decreased energy consumption.

  • Field Balancing

    Our on-site balancing is the faster and least expensive option to ensure rotating equipment, like fans, drums, draw works, brush cutters, work as designed. Anywhere in the world, we come to you. Predictive Maintenance Services by Failure Prevention Associates, Inc.

  • Oil Analysis

    Our oil analysis detects when fluid bearing components need repair. Also an excellent detection method for early gearbox wear. Predictive Maintenance Services by Failure Prevention Associates, Inc.

  • Data Center Evaluation

    We test and measure the physical assets in your Data Center. Find out what the actual heat patterns produced by your server racks. Our analysis of your cooling and power generator can decrease maintenance costs and increase reliability. Since cooling uses 50-60% of most data center's power consumption, this can result in substantial savings and other benefits. Predictive Maintenance Services by Failure Prevention Associates, Inc.
