Course Overview

Rotating equipment is a term used to denote mechanical components using kinetic energy to move fluids and other process materials. Pumps, compressors, turbines, etc. are some examples of rotating equipment. What does ‘predictive maintenance’ refer to in this context? Predictive maintenance refers to checking of the condition and performance of an in-service machine to predict when maintenance would be required.

Effective predictive maintenance includes various parameters and types of inspection, such as vibrations, shocks, acoustic emissions, wear debris in oils, etc. Vibration analysis is used to detect anomalies in the normal vibrations expected out of machines to detect damage or probable future damage.

This Zoe training course will empower you with complete knowledge and detailed information about predictive maintenance, specifically vibration analysis, in rotating equipment. Through this course, you will gain the required experience and confidence to drive maintenance of rotating equipment in your organisation, thereby contributing to better machine life and reduced operational and maintenance costs. This, in turn,

will ensure better opportunities for you to grow and excel in your career.

Course Objectives

The primary objective of this training course is to empower professionals with—

  • detailed knowledge and information about predictive maintenance, specifically vibration analysis, of rotating equipment
  • the required experience and confidence to successfully drive maintenance initiatives for all rotating equipment in one’s organisation, thereby contributing to increased machine life and reduced maintenance costs
  • the exposure and ability to accurately predict time and extent of maintenance through various methods, specifically vibration analysis
  • knowledge of advanced concepts and techniques to conduct predictive maintenance, including those for vibration analysis
  • adequate understanding and skill to interpret analyses results accurately to take appropriate next steps
  • the confidence and knowledge to guide other professionals on performing predictive maintenance accurately
  • the ability to prevent occupational hazards and through timely actions on the wear and tear of machines
  • the knowledge and awareness to conduct all maintenance and inspection activities as per the timelines and methods specified by universally accepted guidelines

Training Methodology

Zoe Talent Solutions follows an unconventional and unique approach to training, ensuring that the training method is both theoretical and practical. Lectures are delivered by highly experienced professionals. Two-way participation is encouraged through role-plays, sample assignments, etc. Trainees are also encouraged to share experiences and issues related to the topic with the rest of the audience, and these are discussed to relate theory to practical scenarios and challenges.

This unique and effective approach to training is adopted by Zoe Talent Solutions for all its training programs and is called the Do–Review–Learn–Apply Model.
