In today’s competitive market, the use of technologies for preventive maintenance is imperative. Plant Condition monitoring, a process to monitor variations like vibration and temperature in machinery to predict a developing fault has gained far more importance for reliable production and extension in life of Plant assets. The use of condition monitoring techniques allows maintenance to be scheduled o
r other actions to be taken to prevent consequential damages. Resultantly, it helps optimization of resources utilization, enhance useful life of equipment, improve inventory control, better productivity and in fact the budgetary control.
TUSDEC/NIDA has organized a comprehensive training on Plant Condition Monitoring in a local hotel covering the techniques of vibration analysis, oil & lube analysis, field balancing, laser alignment & infrared thermography techniques using thermal imaging cameras. Le
ad Trainer having Doctorate in the field of Condition monitoring and vast industrial experience conducted the training sessions. Practical demonstration and filed visit was also carried out for comprehensive understanding of 22 participants gathered from corporate sector and strategic organizations like ICI, KSB Pumps, Berger Paints, KRL etc. Three days training was arranged in collaboration with Institute of Reliability and Centered Maintenance (IRCM).
