Vibration Analyst Advance – Preparatory Training ISO VA CAT II

Learn to be an effective vibration analyst – capable of diagnosing a wide range of faults, conducting special tests, and performing precision aligning and balancing machinery

Program objectives:

To train you to be a successful and competent vibration analyst.

  • To develop abilities to diagnose a wide range of fault conditions.
  • Pragmatic approach to collect the right data with the correct vibration analyzer settings.
  • To provide useful tips so that you may validate the diagnosis.
  • Alignment & balancing improve the reliability of the equipment.
Who should attend
  • Engineering Executives
  • Maintenance Managers
  • Planning Engineers
  • Maintenance & Reliability Engineers
  • Mechanical & Electrical Engineers
Program Brief:

This course is a combination of reliability improvement (through precision maintenance practices), Condition monitoring and root cause failure analysis and provides the best all-round approach to reducing maintenance costs and improving availability. The key is that with the VA Level-II course, you will transition from being a person who is primarily capable of collecting data to a person who can diagnose faults on the critical machinery, and in some cases, prevent or correct them.

Key Takeaways:
  • How a well-designed program, and the RCM approach (with precision balancing, alignment, lubrication and resonance control), will improve the OEE and therefore the bottom line
  • The condition monitoring technologies: acoustic emission, infrared analysis (thermography), oil analysis, wear particle analysis, motor testing – via supplementary training
  • How machines work – via supplementary self-study via the “Equipment Knowledge” section
  • How to select the correct measurement location and axis, and collect good, repeatable measurements
  • How to analyse vibration spectra, time waveforms and phase measurements
  • How to diagnose a wide range of fault conditions: unbalance, eccentricity, misalignment, bent shaft, cocked bearing, looseness, rolling element bearings faults, journal bearing faults, gearbox faults, resonance, and other conditions
Key Features:

You will come away from the course with a solid understanding of:

  • Vibration Analysis details & live case studies
  • Maintenance Strategies
  • Implementation of Successful Condition Monitoring Plan
  • Learn how to Prepare Vibration Analysis report
  • Learn the Execution plan of Vibration Analysis work order
Key Benefits:
  • Great deal to learn, that will help you to perform your role with confidence. In this course you will:
  • Increase your knowledge on maintenance practices &the common condition monitoring technologies
  • Increase your knowledge about data collection, testing techniques, sensor types
  • Learn a great deal about signal processing and the settings of your vibration analyzer
  • Increase your knowledge of spectrum analysis, time waveform analysis, and phase analysis and why these tools are used by the vibration analyst
  • Learn about common failure modes and how to detect them, including unbalance, misalignment, looseness, resonance, pump/fan/compressor vane, cavitation, turbulence, gearbox & bearing failures
  • Learn about precision shaft alignment and soft foot correction
  • Learn about single and two-plane balancing
  • Learn the basics of setting alarm limits: band alarms, and mask/envelope alarms
