Reliability Training courses provide engineers, mechanics, technicians, and supervisors with the knowledge and skills required to correctly identify, prioritize, and establish corrective actions for the most common causes of industrial equipment failures. Our training programs have been specifically developed to provide continuing efforts to help improve maintenance and reliability within your facility by teaching PRACTICAL applications. By training personnel to recognize potential problems, we can help prepare your employees to identify, address, and prevent failures in equipment and assets.
Machinery Monitoring and Diagnostics
Our Machinery Monitoring & Diagnostic course provides the knowledge and skills required to accurately identify, prioritize, and correct the most common causes of machinery failure. Learn from our experience with over 1000 failed pieces of industrial and commercial equipment.
Participants will learn to perform a comprehensive visual assessment of machinery installation and installation design based upon recognized and generally accepted good engineering practices. Data collected on motorized test stands with commonly used diagnostic tools will be analyzed and correlated with the comprehensive visual assessment to develop a thorough action plan to minimize future failures. After successfully developing recommendations to improve the motorized test stands, participants will select equipment within their own facility to practice our diagnostic methodology with the assistance of our instructors.
Practical Plant Failure Analysis
Knowledgeable and experienced engineering instructors utilize hands-on examples of failed components, such as fasteners, gears, bearings, shafts, chains, and couplings to cover the basic concepts related to corrosion, wear, fatigue, and overload failures. The 3-day class sessions are designed for students with varying backgrounds. The course fosters learning and development with ‘hands-on’ instruction that informs attendees “how” mechanical components work, “why” they fail, and most importantly, how to prevent a future failure.
This is accomplished by facilitating the physical inspection, analysis, and reporting on literally hundreds of failed components provided in a classroom environment. By raising awareness of the prevalence and pervasive nature of human error and applying these basic concepts to specific components and machinery types. These exemplars range from failed pump and gearbox components to alloys with environmental cracking.
Emphasis is on how to conduct an accurate and objective analysis. Information is applicable to all personnel, especially reliability engineers, maintenance mechanics/technicians, maintenance supervisors, and plant engineers.
