By Chemical Processing Staff

Jul 26, 2011

Meggitt Sensing Systems has released seven videos in a series of narrated presentations about vibration monitoring.  The training course videos help explain vibration monitoring to beginner and intermediate users and how to derive the benefits of vibration analysis.

The course was designed to help maintenance and reliability professionals learn the fundamentals of vibration analysis in a user-friendly online format. The free online video series explains how vibration monitoring can be used for condition monitoring of rotating equipment, such as fans, motors, pumps, blowers, compressors, chillers, gearboxes and mixers, to  reduce failure rates in the field. 

This equipment is typically found in industries such as pulp and paper, nuclear power, power generation, petrochemical, oil and gas, food and beverage, chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, railway, steel making and wastewater treatment plants. 

The course is a series of seven short videos, dealing with progressively advanced vibration monitoring techniques. Module 1 starts by explaining the basic principles of vibration and how it is detected and monitored. Module 2 introduces the types of transducers and how to select the appropriate sensor.  Module 3 goes more in depth on monitoring techniques. Modules 4 through 7 discuss advanced diagnostic techniques for faults commonly detected through vibration monitoring, such as unbalance, bearing defects and stator problems. 

The course progresses in topic complexity and comprehension. All modules are currently online and can be streamed live or downloaded to watch offline. Each module is about 15 minutes long.
