Vibration analysis is a powerful tool for identifying problems with motors, pumps, and fans, particularly when it comes to rolling element bearings. By monitoring the vibrations of these components, it is possible to detect issues such as misalignment, bearing wear, or other problems that may lead to equipment failure.
Condition-based maintenance (CBM) is a proactive approach to maintaining equipment in which maintenance is performed only when necessary, rather than on a fixed schedule. CBM can help reduce maintenance costs, improve equipment reliability, and increase productivity in industrial settings.
The condition of your rolling element bearings plays a critical role when managing your rotating machinery’s overall health. A single bearing failure lone an cause machine shutdown, resulting in costly downtime and production loss. This training aims to address the competency gap in interpreting vibration data plots, understanding the sources of rotating machinery vibration, and recognizing common machinery malfunctions.
Gearboxes are one of the most critical components in many plants; either because of their replacement cost and lead time, and/or because of the criticality of their service. They also pose significant challenges for vibration analysts. Collecting waveforms and spectra that will indicate the presence of a fault, and accurately diagnose the nature and severity of the fault, can test the skills of most analysts. In this training, we will utilize a range of animations and activities to complement theory with applications demonstrating spectra, waveforms, time synchronous averaging, and autocorrelation o diagnose faults.
Modular Course: Vibration Analysis of Motors, Pumps, & Fans – including Rolling Element Bearing Analysis
This course will provide you with a solid understanding of vibration analysis fundamentals, measurements, diagnosing common machinery faults and running a good condition monitoring program. Test questions and assignments in between sessions, as practical application of the learning, will be incorporated in order to gauge your learning.
This introduction to condition monitoring gives an understanding of the effectiveness of condition monitoring and
the various technologies it encompasses. It follows the methods and procedures defined in ISO 17359 and includes an introduction into vibration analysis, lubrication analysis, thermography, and ultrasound.
A unique 5-day weekend course (July 1, 8,15, 22, 29) on BMV That prepares attendees to perform basic vibration analysis on industrial machinery using single-channel measurements, with or without trigger signals, according to established and recognized procedures. It covers the basics of sensors, database and data collector setup, data collection, signal processing, fault analysis, and basics of single plane balancing. It is partial preparation for the Vibration Analyst Category II Certification Exam. The workshops and demonstrations scheduled throughout the training course are used to illustrate theory and applications.
Five (5) training days to optimize learning and application. Delegates will learn to perform a range of simple, single-channel machinery vibration condition monitoring and diagnostic activities. It is recommended for individuals as an introduction to mechanical vibrations and as partial preparation for the ISO 18436-2:2014 Vibration Analyst Category I Certification Exam. Workshops and demonstrations are scheduled throughout the training course to reaffirm curricular theory and applications.
