-Proficient in basic computer software such as Microsoft Outlook, Word, PowerPoint Excel and Project; CMMS and AutoCAD
-Knowledge of industrial codes (ASME, ANSI).
-Lead by example and coaches safety to others supporting plant safety initiatives
-Assist with the PSM Mechanical Integrity program as it relates to fixed equipment, rotating equipment, instrumentation and controls and emergency shutdown systems for the complex.
-Assist in developing and supporting the continual improvement of the site’s Computerized Maintenance Management System as it relates to the mechanical integrity program and reliability initiatives.
-Perform technical investigations on plant equipment failures, documenting the results and collaboratively making recommendations to resolve issues following a standard root cause analysis method.
-Monitor the condition of critical equipment in the plant using continuous vibration monitoring and condition monitoring equipment, oil analysis results, process data, and thermographic surveys.
-Lead in the review of all new rotating and reciprocating equipment prior to purchase and recommend proper selections including spare parts lists.
-Routinely review predictive maintenance analysis of all large rotating machines, keep up-to-date records of vibration base line data, vibration trends and alignment data and recommend corrective action as required to maintain equipment integrity.
-Maintain the Bently Nevada System1 data acquisition system and coordinate training to maintain a base of expertise of vibration analysis knowledge in the maintenance department
-Serve as the mechanical acceptance representative on newly installed plant rotating equipment to assure proper installation and that the equipment will be mechanically reliable when accepted and have the correct spare parts in the warehouse.
-Design Preventive Maintenance Programs for all critical items of machinery and equipment and lubrication programs for all plant machinery. Responsible for the implementation of these programs, monitoring the effectiveness of the program, and making modifications as necessary.
-Update and maintains a Lubrication Manual containing lubricant specifications and lubricating instructions for all plant machinery including electric and steam drivers.
-Prepare and assist the planning team on work orders relating to approved preventive maintenance programs, together with the related checklists, instruction sheets, and other material defining the work to be done, the frequency of execution and, where pertinent, the sequence of steps to be followed.
-Perform analyses of pertinent management information reports and equipment histories for the purpose of identifying items of machinery and rotating equipment with high maintenance costs or with lubrication problems and makes recommendations for corrective action. Follow through to see that corrective actions are implemented on efficient and effective timelines.
-Assist the Maintenance Engineering Superintendent and Planner with pre-planning of all planned turnarounds, shutdowns, and special projects including timing, accumulation of job lists, ordering of parts and materials, sequencing of jobs around a critical path, sizing of work crews based on job estimation, and preparation of an overall schedule. During the execution of these projects, monitor and advise the Maintenance Engineering Superintendent of the progress of the work.
-Promote the standardization throughout the plant of such widely used items as pumps, valves, instruments, etc., to simplify maintenance work, standardize work methods, reduce Stores inventory, and reduce manufacturing cost.
-Communicate with production management on problems relating to mechanical failures and facilitate collaborative problem solving.
-Directs the maintenance of the department’s technical files on equipment, vendor products library and industrial codes.
