Machinery Alignment

Course Introduction:                                                   

This course aims at providing the participants with a comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge, and enhancing their skills for the maintenance and operation of rotating equipment. Emphasis shall be laid on topics relevant to machinery maintenance requirements, identify and diagnose the typical faults and troubles of rotating equipment. This includes equipment Alignment, bearing, different types of misalignment, coupling, alignment, balance, vibration and analyzes the performance of the rotating equipment components. Selecting the most efficient maintenance strategy will be addressed too

Course Objectives:                                                     

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Apply techniques for troubleshooting failure causes and consequences
  • Identify causes of machinery failures
  • Apply condition monitoring technique
  • Understand equipment reliability and predictive maintenance fundamentals
  • Carryout lubrication monitoring and analysis
  • Operate procedures best practice
  • Describe RCFA (Root Cause Failure Analysis) procedures and techniques (rotors, journal bearings and vibration, thrust bearings, balance drums, pump mechanical seals, compressor seals -liquid and dry gas, and auxiliary systems)

Who Should Attend?
