Maintenance and plant health service engineers are responsible for vibration of installed machinery. If excessive vibration is noticed in any machinery or plant, they will be immediately called for taking action. They will have to provide some remedial measures to reduce vibration in machinery. Even predicting the possible time of machine failure can be very useful.
These course is therefore aimed at providing inputs to carry out vibration based condition monitoring of machinery. However, information presented here can also be used to reduce vibration in existing machinery.
An introduction to and a survey of the various techniques used to diagnose the condition of machinery, including time base waveforms, spectrum analysis, phase measurements, and various amplitude measurement methods. Applies sensor fundamentals to machinery analysis, including overview of the sensors’ strengths and weaknesses in various applications. Common machinery malfunction are discussed, including basic guidelines for the best detection tools for each and key signs to watch for. Malfunction and common pitfalls are demonstrated. “Real world” machinery analysis case histories are shared.
The course combines basic vibration analysis and the basic data logger operation into one comprehensive approach to the vibration problem solving and it provides the delegate with practical guidance to enable development of programs to care for machines.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
- Maintenance Managers & Supervisors
- Plant Managers & Engineers
- Maintenance Planners & Technicians
- Anyone responsible for the supervision of others in rotating machinery work.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to select the appropriate sensor and technique to diagnose typical machinery malfunctions. They will be able to “read” vibration signatures and evaluate machinery condition from the data. Participants will recognize various common problems and be able to make recommendations for continued operation or schedule repairs, and isolation of the affected machinery component
The training methodology is a combination of lectures, individual, workshop and examination. The participants will each be provided with a handout that contains printed materials for use during the training and for reference after the training.
