Maintenance Method

The answer is:

Pump= CBM

Motor= CBM

Seal= CBM

Coupling= CBM/FTM

 CBM= condition based maintenance is the most cost efficient method when the component has a Failure Developing Period (FDP). Normally the cost to OTB normal cost more due to additional damage and downtime. FTM is also costly due to that you over maintaining the equipment and change out components before the end of their life.
