Why Choose this Online training Course?
This Couplings & Shaft Alignment online training course will provide an overview of coupling designs and applications for transferring the torque and rotation from the driver shaft to the rotating machine: pump, compressor or turbine. The online training course will indicate the importance of good installation, maintenance and failure analysis of couplings. The topics are specially designed for engineers and technicians that have had limited exposure to couplings and need to upgrade their technical knowledge about coupling characteristics and various operating loads. The focus in the course will be on problem detection, root cause analysis and failure prevention.
Shaft alignment is a technical skill that is categorized as a specialty. It requires measurement instruments and relies on technician’s skill and experience if good results are to be expected on pumps, compressors or turbines. This online training course will provide an integral online training knowledge and experience of shaft alignment to solve misalignment problems in rotating machinery. Emphasis will be on the ways to analyze, identify and correct the root causes of misalignment, unbalancing and vibration in order to achieve smooth operation, and improved machine performance.
This PetroKnowledge online training course will include discussions of various real practical problems and case studies from the existing engineering practice, which will be solved in the form of several workshops.
This online training course will highlight:
- Importance of proper selection of couplings
- Guidelines for coupling installation: mounting and dismounting
- Common coupling problems and potential failures
- Effects of shaft alignment
- Best methods and techniques for measurement of shaft alignment
- Effects of misalignment on pump and compressor operation
