Vibration Analysis

$899

Hands-On

2 Days

1.6 CEU

At the end of this seminar students will be able to:

  1. Understand predictive vs. preventative maintenance programs
  2. Identify the types of deterioration in plant machinery
  3. Use condition monitoring techniques to diagnose and predict operation failure
  4. Perform pro-active maintenance to improve plant productivity
  • Why You should take this seminar

    Basic vibration theory will be discussed along with the existing maintenance systems, predictive and preventative maintenance programs, and procedures for a good condition monitoring system. You may not walk out as an expert, however, you will leave the seminar with a very good understanding of what is necessary to make a valuable contribution at your facility.
