LINAC systems are usually scheduled to plan round the clock treatments for weeks and months at a time. The only time the systems are not in use is during scheduled maintenance, unexpected downtime, and the installation of new pieces of radiation oncology equipment. Maintenance is planned on machinery to avoid interruption to the treatment of patients this also helps to prevent any unexpected downtime from equipment failure.
LINAC systems require a preventive maintenance plan and will address four critical as explained below:
- Electrical Distribution Systems
- Mechanical Utility Systems
- Radiation Safety Systems
- Pulsed High Voltage Systems
Parts for LINAC systems and relevant technical department equipment are designated to be responsible for proper maintenance of radiation oncology equipment. The technical personnel taking charge of linear accelerator maintenance and LINAC system replacement parts know what is at stake if the system should break down. They are ready to meet the demanding nature of the preventive maintenance for LINAC systems.
The preventive maintenance processes involves daily coordination of LINAC Systems and experimental facility maintenance needs in order to generate schedules for maintenance in order to harmonize maintenance plans with the program for operations of the facilities. The need for planning in maintaining parts for linear accelerators is vital to keep the system working without crises.
