This course is aimed at people who are currently closely involved in the application of vibration analysis techniques in support of a predictive maintenance program. Leveraging numerous practical examples, advanced vibration techniques will be presented in order to expose and detect complex mechanical and electrical problems in rotating machines. A variety of rotating machine applications are presented to include a range from simple pump or fan arrangements to more complex machines such as extruders, compressors, filling systems, and presses. Special attention is also given to the monitoring of slow rotating shafts with examples provided from paper, food and beverage, and chemical industry applications.
By means of concrete study cases, we show how detailed vibration analysis can detect mechanical and electrical problems on several types of rotary machines. Including simple pumps, fans and gearboxes up to more complex machines such as extruders & compressors
Particular attention will be given to the low speed machine monitoring with examples from the paper, food and chemistry sectors for example.
Overview of the theoretical concepts of vibration analysis techniques to detect rotating equipment problems:
Detection of problems such as:
