All physical structures and machinery that are associated with dynamic components or parts give rise to vibration. The vibrations generated in machinery or structures by its dynamic components have become a well utilized parameter for condition monitoring – Predictive Maintenance. It has been established that a change in the physical or running condition of mechanical systems, almost always result to a corresponding change in the vibration characteristics produced by them. By measuring and analyzing such vibrations, we obtain vital information about the mechanical condition of the mechanical system. This course therefore will introduce participants to monitoring Causes of vibration Effects of vibration, and Control of vibration
- Introduction to vibration and causes of machinery failures - Fundamental Principles of Vibrations - Vibration and Machinery condition - Cause of Vibration - Vibration Monitoring - Effects and control strategy of vibration - Alignment. - Lab Demonstration Activity.
This training is designed to equip participants with the fundamentals of vibration with special emphasis on: Causes of vibration Effects of vibration, and Control of vibration
This course is designed for engineers, maintenance technicians, electricians, millwrights, supervisors, reliability technicians and anyone who is responsible for the hydraulic maintenance of your plant machinery. The course will also benefit those graduates who may want to develop their career in Maintenance plant machineries.
