Project Description

This course is a comprehensive, highly practical and interactive course that the participants shall have an opportunity to discuss rotating equipment vibration and related maintenance issues and be provided with the most up-to-date information with best practice in dealing with the subject.

Why Attend 

Condition monitoring has grown into significant factor to increase profits within a wide variety of industries. Vibration Analysis is one of the most powerful condition based maintenance technologies, and the basis of many predictive maintenance programs.

The future advancement of equipment condition monitoring technologies is inherently tied to the application and development of on-line or permanently installed systems.

For many industrial facilities, on-line vibration monitoring systems are used to safeguard machinery systems from failures, and therefore installed only on critical equipment. The objective is to eliminate process downtime through equipment that is totally available and reliable.

This course is designed to provide a practical and comprehensive overview of system modules, installation concerns, and benefits of Vibration Monitoring.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, among various achievements, participants will get specialist insight into:

  • Apply systematic techniques in machinery vibration monitoring, analysis and implement the predictive maintenance strategies and procedures

  • Identify the various maintenance strategies used in vibration analysis and determine the factors which influence maintenance strategies.

  • Discover the various types & causes for machinery failure and recognize modern maintenance philosophy including its tasks & strategies.

  • Increase in-depth understanding on machinery vibrations such as the various equipment & processes typically monitored by vibration analysis as well as the typical vibration problems and the simplest form of vibrating system.

Who should attend

This course provides an overview of all significant aspects and considerations of vibration analysis for rotating equipment in accordance with the most updated maintenance techniques for those who are involved in reliability, rotating equipment, process, control and instrumentation of rotating equipment This includes Engineers, maintenance supervisors, mechanical foremen, specialists and other technical staff.
