Vibration Analysis (VA), applied in an industrial or maintenance environment aims to reduce maintenance costs and equipment downtime by detecting equipment faults. VA is a key component of a Condition Monitoring (CM) program, and is often referred to as Predictive Maintenance (PdM). Most commonly VA is used to detect faults in rotating equipment (Fans, Motors, Pumps, and Gearboxes etc.) such as unbalance, misalignment, rolling element bearing faults and resonance conditions.

Participant Profile:
This course is designed for Mechanical, Electrical and Industrial engineers working in plant condition monitoring divisions. It is equally beneficial for maintenance technicians.


Instructor Profile:
An experienced and highly qualified professional in the field of vibration analysis will conduct this course.

This course will be delivered through lectures, multimedia presentation, videos and hands-on practice on latest equipment. 

Learning Outcome:
Upon completion of this course, the participants would have complete understanding of the Maintenance problems in process industry that can be easily rectified by vibration analysis. They would be able to apply this technique on any critical plant asset. Participants would also be able to distinguish Vibration Analysis over other Condition monitoring techniques keeping in mind economic factor as well.
