    PFMA Member ProfileDavid JohnsonVice President of Operations North Shore Environmental Construction, Inc. N117 W18493 Fulton Drive Germantown, WI 53022 www.nsecinc.com 262-255-4468

    Age: 53Family: Married to my wife Rosanne for 22 years, born and raised in Boston, MA (yes Tom Brady was framed!). Currently reside in Kenosha.

    education: I received my start in the United States Marine Corp performing Nuclear, Biological and Chemical warfare. I performed training and offensive and defensive strategies for the troops. Then I attended Northeastern University in Boston, MA for Environmental Engineering studies.

    Career: I have spent my entire career in the environmental indus-try. I worked for an environmental company after the USMC. I had great exposure to lots of different regulatory, remediation, emergency response and facility decommissioning activities. I witnessed the implementation of regulatory and OSHA rules along the way. I started in the field and worked my way through to project management, busi-ness development and management positions.

    Business Development: North Shore Environmental Construction, Inc. is a full service environmental and industrial main-tenance company. The company performs emergency response, indus-trial maintenance, tank cleanings, facility decommissioning, remedia-tion and other environmental related work. Currently we are an all hazards emergency response contractor for the WDNR and a team member for USEPA region 5 response contractor.

    Business Goals: The environmental industry has changed over the past 15 years due to the closing of several heavy duty industrial facilities for various reasons. This has caused a change in the market regarding the amount of knowledge left in the environmental industry. People have found new careers or retired early as these plants closed. North Shore has been in business since 1989 and is an experienced company providing customers with a reliable ability to provide solu-tions and service to their challenges.

    Personal Goals: To be honest, I am setting up my retirement to happen in the next 10 years. I would like to not think this is so, but facts are facts. My personal goal is to develop as many of the younger people professionally who have chosen to enter the environmental pro-fession. There are several decades of knowledge that has to be passed onto the next generation regarding this industry.

    What do you like to do for fun? I enjoy spending time with my wife, Rosanne, and our friends. We enjoy traveling, going to football games and visiting with family.

    My advice for young people in our rapidly changing workforce: Develop a strong work ethic. Be reliable and dont be afraid to take chances and make mistakes. As the saying goes, experi-ence is what we gain when we make a mistake.

    Final addition:When it is all said and done, to be able to look back and know you did your best, treated people fairly, and had fun along the way.

    Maintaining your organizations physical assets is essential for run-ning your enterprise efficiently. The goals are minimal downtime, minimal energy use, and ensuring that your physical capital lasts as long as possible so as to remain an asset rather than becoming a liability. The way highly successful organizations achieve these goals is through preventive maintenance.

    In order to excel at maintain-ing your companys assets, you need the insight derived from key performance indicators, or KPIs. You need to know what equipment needs work, what needs to be pri-oritized, where resources should be focused, and what routine pre-ventative measures must be taken in order to keep your equipment in optimal working order.

    Collect, track, and analyze using the performance indicators that are the most relevant to your busi-ness. Measuring is the way that we as humans can truly understand something. Through understanding comes control and the ability to improve.

    Here are 6 of the most critical KPIs that your organization can use to get a clear picture of how to keep your enterprise running as smooth-ly as possible today and years into the future.

    1. HoW ReliAble iS YouR equiPMenT? A look AT MeAn TiMe beTWeen FAiluRe

    This is an extremely important measure for asset heavy enterprises. The mean time between failure, or MTBF, refers to the time in between unexpected breakdowns of an asset or production stoppages. The goal of your maintenance efforts is to have the MTBF contin-ue to increase. For a fairly accurate measurement, the mean times are usually assessed annually.

    2. WHeRe ARe THe RooT CAuSeS oF FAiluRe WiTHin THe liFe CYCle?

    If the MTBF is indicating poor performance, then the next step is to identify which part of the equip-ments life cycle is causing the issue the original quality, the severity

    of day-to-day operations, the qual-ity of replacement pieces, or the actual maintenance workmanship and routine.

    Collecting information on why failures are occurring is an impor-tant key performance indicator that can help your business adopt bet-ter life cycle practices. Could your operators benefit from increased equipment training? Is the machin-ery breaking down because it is simply too old? Is your mainte-nance team ensuring that high quality parts are being used to keep company assets in excellent work-ing condition?

    3. HoW MAnY WoRk oRDeRS ARe PeRFoRMeD on TiMe?

    While building a performance trend line with lagging indicators like the MTBF is crucial, so too is checking to see if your organization is practicing healthy maintenance habits with leading indicators. Evaluating the percentage of condi-tion inspection work orders that are performed on time is a useful indicator of how likely breakdowns are to occur. This is also a simple and inexpensive KPI to utilize with a robust CMMS product.

    4. HoW eFFeCTive iS YouR MAinTenAnCe?

    To get a clearer picture of the quality of your maintenance work, take a look at the ratio of planned maintenance to how much reactive maintenance is being performed. This KPI will give your organiza-tion a good idea of where mainte-nance expenses are going.

    Preventative maintenance is almost always less costly than reac-tive maintenance work. It is also helpful to keep track of how many training and refresher courses are being taken each year per main-tainer to get an idea of how much energy is being put into keeping those in charge of maintenance up-to-date and knowledgeable.

    5. THe nuMbeR oF enD-uSeR CoMPlAinTS

    Your product is as good as your customers perceive it to be. This is why tracking the number of end-user complaints is an essential KPI for maintenance. In order to understand the true quality of your products, collecting and analyzing user feedback is essential. Effective CMMS software will be easily cus-tomizable, allowing your organiza-tion to track the important end user feedback that will help you to be proactive about making positive changes when necessary.

    6. CoST oF MAinTenAnCe PeR ASSeT

    How much are you spending on maintenance per asset? How do the actual maintenance costs compare to the budgeted costs? Keep track of these numbers to find out where all the resources are being used to maintain your equipment and to determine if this is money well spent or not.

    With the right key performance indicators, your organization can flawlessly manage your assets. It is through the insight that comes from measuring performance that will foster understanding and therefore effective, positive steps and preventative measures.

    How CMMS with TPM makes Factory Maintenance Even BetterSubmitted by Eagle Technology, Inc., Phone: 262-241-3845, www.EagleCMMS.com, E-mail: [email protected]

    When it comes to ongoing busi-ness operation, maintaining a structured plan is critical. The last thing your factory needs to deal with is an unexpected hiccup or delay from product defects, fail-ures, or accidents. Determining the best strategy to minimize downtime is the typical course of action businesses take to mitigate risks. However, coordinating these efforts is often a scramble that leads to stress, frustration, and short-term fixes.

    Rather than adhering to this wait-and-react model, CMMS systems have continued to gain popularity and traction within manufacturing processes. The pri-mary purpose of aComputerized Maintenance Management Systemis to manage, capture, and track inspection, mainte-nance and repair activities for cost containment, risk reduc-tion, as well as improving the customer experience. When you combine aCMMS with TPM (Total Productive Maintenance), organizations caneliminate costly machine downtimeand shift to proactive maintenance methods.

    GeTTinG To knoW TPM

    With a history dating back over 50 years to 1961, TPM works to shift the mode of thinking within

    manufacturing to preventative maintenance. As mentioned, many manufacturing installa-tions only implement a reactive model which simply addresses problems as they occur. By inte-grating maintenance directly into a workflow, TPM incorporates these elements of planning to help reduce downtime and improve an organizations efficiency.

    TPM helps to orient the service and maintenance profession-als most familiar with a system toward remaining in charge of their maintenance and repairs. This will mean fewer incidents of unexpected downtime and a

    much better overall operation.

    As technology continues to push toward improved automation and reporting with the Internet of Things (IoT), the principles of TPM can be utilized even more greatly within a CMMS system. CMMS reflects the state of the industry in its ability to monitor and address machinery in real-time. These systems will serve as the core driving force behind any type of TPM to create a truly pre-ventative maintenance dynamic.

    Heading Toward Predictive Maintenance

    Availability of machine moni-

    toring systems integrated with CMMS helps to achieve the objec-tives of TPM much more easily and directly for businesses. These systems are much more than a set of business standards and a tracking spreadsheet. Instead, it provides a live and interactive tool which management can see and understand in real-time directly on their computers, smartphones, and tablets.

    As data is accumulated, it can also provide insight on operation-al trends, identify pain points, and even indicate potential problems over time. This type of predictive maintenance can lead into even greater operational efficiency. And with the push toward Lean Manufacturing, this predictive model will lead to an operation pushing the limits of efficiency and production potential.

    As a maintenance professional your attention is focused on the operation of the facility, its equip-ment, and processes. However, performance of those duties may in fact, will result in the gen-eration of a waste. Depending on the type of waste, regulations Federal and State exist for its man-agement from cradle-to-grave. The purpose of this article is to provide maintenance professionals with some simple guidance about how to identify and manage wastes generated during routine mainte-nance activities.

    FiRST oF All, WHAT iS A WASTe?Quite simply, its anything thrown away or dis-

    carded as a result of a business producing a prod-uct or providing a service. And lets face it, thats quite a lot!

    Federal EPA regulations identify several differ-ent types of waste, each with its own regulations proportional to the environmental hazard it poses. Wastes regulated by EPA includeHAzARDouS WASTe:

    A waste may be regulated as hazardous if it appears on a list of processes or chemical names (listed hazardous waste) or displays a dangerous characteristic such as ignitability, corrosivity, reac-tivity, or toxicity (characteristic hazardous waste). A waste may be hazardous due to its being listed and/or displaying one or more characteristics.uSeD oil:

    Technically a hazardous waste usually for tox-icity due to the presence of lead or other heavy metals a waste may be identified and managed as a used oil if it is a petroleum-based or synthetic oil, contaminated during use, and to be recycled not dis-posed by being burned as a fuel or re-used (with or without processing). The advantage to managing a waste as a used oil is a reduced regulatory burden for compliance.univeRSAl WASTe:

    Another waste that may dis-play a hazardous waste char-acteristic but can be identified and managed at a lower level of regulation is a universal waste. The EPA currently identifies the following four universal wastes: Lamps. This includes most lamps in use in facili-

    ties today. Batteries. All batteries except dry-cell alkaline

    batteries and liquid lead-acid batteries sent for

    reclamation. Mercury-containing devices. A manufactured

    article that uses liquid metallic mercury as part of its function. If your facility was in use prior to the late 1970s, and has not been retrofitted, it is quite likely to contain mercury-containing devic-es such as thermostats, thermometers, relays, gauges, &etc.

    Recalled and cancelled pesticides. Unfortunately, this does not include the herbicides and pesti-cides in use at your facility for grounds main-tenance, those will likely be a hazardous waste. This category of universal waste is meant for those pesticides collected as part of a recall (gov-ernment or private) or during a community col-lection program.

    non-HAzARDouS WASTe:Surprised? Though not subject to Federal EPA

    regulations, non-hazardous waste, if generated by an industrial or commercial process, may be subject to State regulations. States have the author-ity to create their own regulations for wastes EPA identifies as non-hazardous. Be sure to check with your state environmental agency to determine what, if any, regulations apply to your non-hazard-ous waste.oTHeR WASTeS:

    Though technically not regulated in the same manner as those wastes already mentioned, the fol-lowing wastes are still subject to Federal and State regulations and must be managed and disposed of with care. They include: Polychlorinated biphenyls

    (PCBs). Banned for use in the U.S. in 1979, they are still found in transformers, lighting ballast, capacitors, and more.

    Asbestos, especially in its friable form, which is easily capable of creating dust. Not banned for use in the U.S. (surprised?) asbestos can be found in HVAC insulation, dry-wall & plaster, floor tiles and mastic, asphalt shingles and roof felt, and much more.

    WHAT MAinTenAnCe ACTiviTieS ARe SouRCeS oF WASTe?

    Well, it could be just about everything you do. Im not a Maintenance Professional myself, but these are some of the mainte-nance activities that may result in the generation of a waste: Replacing spent lamps. Changing batteries in equipment. Use of a solvent-based parts

    washer (especially a chlorinated solvent).

    Corrosive cleaners or degreasers. Painting with oil-based paints and flammable

    solvents. Removing/repairing pre-1970 equipment. Saturated spill absorbants or recovered material

    from spill response. Stripping lead-based paint.

    Disposing of old or obsolete product. Aerosol cans and disposable compressed gas cyl-

    inders if not RCRA Empty. Rags contaminated with solvents. Changing oil or replacing oil filters in equipment. Use of pesticides or herbicides on facility

    grounds. Addition to or renovation to building structure. Repairs to an HVAC system. Replacing lighting ballast. MoreWHAT iS RequiReD FoR CRADle-To-GRAve MAnAGeMenT oF WASTe?

    First of all, your responsibility as a generator of a waste depends upon how much hazardous waste you generate. Some states modify the Federal EPA classification of generator status, but EPA identifies the following: Large Quantity Generator of hazardous waste

    (LQG) - Generate 1,000 kg or more of hazardous waste or more than 1 kg of acute hazardous waste in a calendar month.

    Small Quantity Generator of hazardous waste (SQG) - Generate more than 100 kg but less than 1,000 kg of hazardous waste in a calendar month.

    Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator of hazardous waste (CESQG) Generate no more than 100 kg of hazardous waste and no more than 1 kg of acute hazardous waste in a cal-endar month.

    Though generator responsibili-ties for waste management may vary, most must comply with some version of the following: Determine if all wastes are

    hazardous, used oil, universal, non-hazardous, or state-spe-cific.

    Accumulate wastes in contain-ers maintained in good condi-tion, kept closed, no leaks, no residue on outside.

    tions of waste containers and waste accumulation areas.

    Document off-site transportation to a permit-ted or approved facility for treatment, storage, or disposal. (Transportation of most wastes are also subject to DOT transportation regulations.)

    Notify EPA of your regulated waste activity. Submit reports to EPA of your hazardous waste

    generation and disposal. Train appropriate personnel. Maintain records of compliance for at least three

    years.WHAT noT To Do: Discharge waste to a sanitary or domestic sewer

    without a permit or written approval from your sanitary district.

    Dispose of waste on the ground. Allow solvent-based wastes to evaporate.

    Dump any waste other than a non-hazardous waste or state-specific waste with state approval into a regular trash dumpster.

    Burn waste to get rid of it. Leave unused product sitting around, i.e. long-

    term storage, without a plan for its future use or disposal.

    WHAT CAn You Do To ReDuCe YouR CRADle-To-GRAve ReSPonSibiliTY?

    It might not be possible to completely eliminate your cradle-to-grave responsibility, but perhaps, you can reduce your burden and save money by enacting some or all of the following practices (dont hesitate to come up with some of your own): Use latex paints that clean-up with water. Switch to a parts cleaners that doesnt use sol-

    vents (e.g. citrus or bacteria). Use product as intended whenever possible

    instead of discarding unused excess. Purchase only what is immediately necessary to

    use. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

    Your job is to keep the facility going, but its never that easy. Be aware that your routine mainte-nance activities may generate several types of waste that require specific management practices.

    The golf club aT caMeloT, loMira, Wi

    On Tuesday, September 13, 2016 the Plant & Facilities Maintenance Educational & Scholastic Foundation (PFM/ESF), in conjunction with PFMA, held their 15th annual golf outing at The Golf Club at Camelot in Lomira, WI. The day started with rain but by the time we teed off, the rain was gone. The rest of the day was cloudy but pleasant temperatures prevailed. 52 golfers had a great day of golf and networking. Thank you to our 14 hole sponsors! The four par 3 holes were used for betting pur-poses. These, along with our 50/50 cash raffle and string event raised over $1000. Proceeds from this event will help fund the PFM/ESF scholar-ship program. The proceeds from one of the betting holes this year were donated to Childrens Hospital. Congratulations to the foursome from CyberLynk Network, Inc. who were the winning team. After an excellent dinner, door prizes were handed out, along with the Grand Prize of $300 cash, and a second prize of $200.

    Thank you to all hole sponsors, team sponsors, golfers, and prize donors.

    We look forward to your participation again next year at The Golf Club at Camelot on Tuesday, September 12, 2017. Mark your calendars now!

    18Industry News

    Harmonics are higher frequency current and voltage in the electrical system. They consist of current flowing at frequencies that are odd mul-tiples (3, 5, 7, 9, etc.) of the fundamental frequency (60Hz) and the volt-age that results when this current flows through upstream impedance. For 60Hz, 3-phase power systems, harmonic currents can flow at 300Hz, 420Hz, 660Hz, 780Hz, etc., and for 1-phase systems harmonic currents can flow at 180Hz, 300Hz, 350Hz, 420Hz, etc. For every frequency at which current flows, there will be corresponding harmonic voltage.

    Harmonics are typically caused by power electronic loads those that convert ac to dc. This includes variable frequency drives (VFD), unin-terruptible power supplies (UPS), switching power supplies, rectifiers, battery chargers, LEDs, CFLs, computers, etc.

    Excessive harmonics can reduce the life of electrical equipment such as power factor (PF) capacitors and transformers, or interfere with the operation of sensitive electronic equipment. PF capacitors are vulner-able to harmonics because they are a low impedance path for harmonics. A small harmonic voltage may cause extremely high harmonic current to flow into capacitors.

    HARMoniC CuRRenT DiSToRTion

    Harmonic current distorts the waveform and also produces har-monic voltage distortion. The percent total harmonic current distortion (%THD-i) is the rms value of all the harmonic currents divided by the fundamental (60Hz) current. Harmonic current distortion can range from 0% to more than 100%.

    %THD-i = Irms-harm / Ifund

    Harmonic distortion may be visualized in either a waveform or spec-trum. Figure 2 is an actual current waveform that looks nothing like a sine wave we can say it is highly distorted (about 100% THD-i). The harmonic spectrum shows the magnitude of current flowing at each harmonic frequency and the total harmonic distortion (100% THD-i). Many alternatives are available for reducing harmonic current.

    While branch circuit current distortion may be as high as 100%, the blended current at an upstream panel or transformer may be consider-ably lower. At this point the current consists of the fundamental current from all loads in addition to the harmonic current from the electronic loads. Nevertheless, it is the amperes of harmonic current (not the per-cent) that causes voltage distortion.

    HARMoniC volTAGe DiSToRTion

    Voltage distortion, in most cases is produced by harmonic current and is typically in the range of 0% (non-distorted) to 15% (extremely distorted). When voltage distortion is caused by harmonic current, the waveform distortion usually appears near the peak of the waveform and the peak voltage often increases. Voltage distortion is typically higher on the secondary side of a transformer (or reactor) than on its primary side. To reduce voltage distortion, reduce the amperes of harmonic current.

    MeASuRinG HARMoniCS

    Power quality analyzers are specially designed to measure the mag-nitude and frequencies of harmonic current and voltage on a power system. If you do not have a power quality analyzer, you can estimate the harmonic current distortion using both a TRMS and a non-TRMS digital ammeter.

    Take a measurement with each instrument.

    If the values are equal, then you do not have harmonic current.

    If they are different, then the value measured with the TRMS meter will be higher than the non-trms meter since the TRMS measure-ment includes 60Hz and harmonic currents.

    Divide the TRMS reading by the non-trms reading (Itrms/Ifund) and estimate the percent total harmonic current distortion (%THD-i) in the table below.

    Generally, harmonics are not a problem until they become large enough to affect other equipment. Harmonic distortion increases as more electronic equipment is used. Often, equipment that saves energy will also produce harmonics. It is a good idea to get a benchmark of harmonic distortion and check it occasionally before problems occur.

    beST PRACTiCeS:

    1. Measure harmonic voltage and current distortion near your service entrance.

    2. If >2% THD-v, look for equipment drawing the highest harmonic cur-rent, and take steps to reduce its harmonic current.

    3. Mitigate harmonics as close as possible to their source.

    4. If PF capacitors are required, on a system with harmonic distortion, use 7% detuned power factor capacitors so that they are protected against harmonics.

    5. Use line reactors on VFDs as a first step against harmonics.

    Fig. 2 (a) Distorted current waveform (b) Harmonic current spectrum (100% THD-i)

    While branch circuit current distortion may be as high as 100%, the blended current at an upstream panel or transformer may be considerably lower. At this point the current consists of the fundamental current from all loads in addition to the harmonic current from the electronic loads. Nevertheless, it is the amperes of harmonic current (not the percent) that causes voltage distortion. Harmonic Voltage Distortion Voltage distortion, in most cases is produced by harmonic current and is typically in the range of 0% (non-distorted) to 15% (extremely distorted). When voltage distortion is caused by harmonic current, the waveform distortion usually appears near the peak of the waveform and the peak voltage often increases. Voltage distortion is typically higher on the secondary side of a transformer (or reactor) than on its primary side. To reduce voltage distortion, reduce the amperes of harmonic current. Measuring Harmonics Power quality analyzers are specially designed to measure the magnitude and frequencies of harmonic current and voltage on a power system. If you do not have a power quality analyzer, you can estimate the harmonic current distortion using both a TRMS and a non-TRMS digital ammeter.

    - Take a measurement with each instrument. - If the values are equal, then you do not have harmonic current. - If they are different, then the value measured with the TRMS meter will be higher than the non-

    trms meter since the TRMS measurement includes 60Hz and harmonic currents. - Divide the TRMS reading by the non-trms reading (Itrms/Ifund) and estimate the percent total

    harmonic current distortion (%THD-i) in the table below.

    Generally, harmonics are not a problem until they become large enough to affect other equipment. Harmonic distortion increases as more electronic equipment is used. Often, equipment that saves energy will also produce harmonics. It is a good idea to get a benchmark of harmonic distortion and check it occasionally before problems occur. Best practices:
