Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course?

Machines deteriorate as they get older so we can expect a certain amount of performance falloff and general deterioration of the machine. If we understand the failure mechanisms that are in place, we can identify which parameters best indicate the deterioration of the machine.

Failure analysis and Predictive Maintenance techniques, including vibration analysis, are discussed in the training course with a view to optimising the maintenance engineering effort while maximising production. Other techniques that will be addressed include infrared thermography, passive ultrasonics, tribology and performance monitoring.

What are the Goals?

What are the Goals?

At the end of this PetroKnowledge training course participants will have:

  • An understanding of Machine Failure Analysis techniques
  • An understanding of a range of Predictive Maintenance Technologies
  • Knowledge of the potential contribution of each these technologies to maintenance efficiency
  • Guidelines indicating how these technologies can interact with and support each other
  • Hints and Tips for practical application of these technologies so as to achieve the best results

    A practical approach to developing an action plan to utilise these technologies in their own areas of responsibility, fitting them into the overall maintenance strategy, and measuring benefits.

Who is this Training Course for?

Who is this Training Course for?

  • Supervisors
  • Team Leader
  • Professionals in Maintenance, Engineering and Production

This PetroKnowledge training course will also benefit anyone who wishes to update themselves on Predictive Maintenance Technologies and Failure Analysis techniques, as well as those who have to judge the suitability of these technologies for their needs and learn how to implement them for the benefit of their organisations.

How will this Training Course be Presented?

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This PetroKnowledge training course will be conducted along workshop principles with formal lectures, case studies and interactive worked examples. Relevant case studies will be provided to illustrate the application of each tool in an operations environment. Each learning point will be re-enforced with practical exercises. There will be ample opportunities for discussion and sharing experiences.

Organisational Impact

Analysis of machine failures and predictive maintenance of rotating plant is vital to the budgetary success of the operations organisation. On completion of this training course, the delegate will be able to critically analyse the methodologies employed within the organisation and instigate improvements where required.

Personal Impact

Technical knowledge is key to effective control and peer respect within any maintenance organisation; when this is achieved personal satisfaction follows. This training course will give the delegate the required level of technical knowledge and skill to achieve that personal satisfaction.
