This four day course, is intended for people who have mastered the basics, but who need to be able to take good data(and decide how the data collector should be set up); analyze a range of faultconditions; and understand balancing and alignment. The course exceeds the ISO18436-2 Category II standard and meets the A5NT Level II Recommended Practice.
Do you already have an understanding of vibration fundamentals and want to become more confident and accurate in your diagnoses? Then you will enjoy this course!
This certified training makes learning about vibration analysis unique. We use 3D animations, Flash simulations, and numerous software simulators that completely demystify vibration analysis. While vibration training courses have traditionally been very theoretical, difficult to understand, (and boring), you will be captivated by the leading training methods, and you will enjoy our practical approach. You will take away skills that you can immediately apply to your job, and you will truly understand what you are doing.
Our focus is on practical knowledge and understanding of machine knowledge, faults and how to recognize problems in time to plan for an outage and act before catastrophic failure or collateral damage occurs.
The Intermediate Vibration Analysis course is intended for personnel who have at least twelve months vibration analysis experience and a thorough understanding of vibration theory and terminology. Eighteen months of vibration analysis experience is required for Category II or Level II certification. The course provides an in-depth study of machinery faults and their associated spectrum, time waveform and phase characteristics.
A Category II analyst is expected to know how to test machines correctly, how to diagnose faults accurately, perform additional diagnostic tests for verification, how to set vibration alarm limits, and how to correct certain types of faults. You need to understand what your analyzer settings mean so that you can take the best measurements. You also need to understand why the vibration patterns change the way they do and how to use time waveform analysis and phase analysis to verify the fault condition.
