Course 1 – Principles and Practices of Predictive Maintenance

Prerequisites: This program is designed for persons who have a good understanding of the field of maintenance.

Description: This comprehensive DVD training program focuses on predictive maintenance as one approach to maintenance. This program describes the general purpose of an effective predictive maintenance program and shows how methods such as vibration analysis, lubricant analysis, and trend analysis can be used to determine equipment condition and predict equipment life.



Course 2 – Vibration Analysis

Prerequisites: This program is designed for persons who are able to use a vibration meter and vibration analyzer.

Description: This comprehensive DVD training program covers how to monitor vibration and perform a vibration analysis. This program also shows how velocity and displacement can be determined and describes the various parts of a vibration analyzer and shows how to use one.



Course 3 – Lubricant and Trend Analysis

Prerequisites: There is no specific prerequisite knowledge or experience necessary to begin study.

Description: This comprehensive DVD training program introduces the principles of lubricant and trend analyses. This program shows how to take an oil sample and how to read an oil analysis report and also presents how to establish and interpret trends.



Course 4 – Techniques for Extending Bearing Life

Prerequisites: This program is designed for persons who are familiar with the components and functions of bearings in relation to rotating equipment, as well as the procedures for installing bearings. In addition, persons should be able to perform simple calculations with decimal values, and convert decimals to whole numbers.

Description: This comprehensive DVD training program presents guidelines for maximizing the operational life of bearings for rotating equipment. These include procedures for proper handling and storage, calculating fit requirements and maintenance and troubleshooting.



Course 5 – Principles of Reverse Double Dial Alignment

Prerequisites: This program is designed for ersons that are familiar with the basic maintenance practices associated with rotating equipment and with using dial indicators to perform machinery alignment. In addition, the person should be able to perform fundamental algebraic functions with both positive and negative numbers in order to solve the formulas presented in the course.

Description: This comprehensive DVD training program describes the principles of the reverse double dial alignment method used to measure and calculate misalignment. This program covers the necessary data needed to determine offset and angularity misalignment values by using a graph. In addition, formulas used to calculate misalignment corrections are presented, and factors which may affect alignment are suggested.



Course 6 – Reverse Double Dial Alignment Procedure

Prerequisites: This program is designed for persons who understand how to use dial indicators to perform machinery alignment. In addition, the persons should understand the principles of reverse double dial alignment, including procedures for plotting offset values and identifying misalignment values from the resulting graph.

Description: This comprehensive DVD training program explains how to use the reverse double dial alignment procedure to determine and correct misalignment. This program includes procedures for determining bracket sag, taking dial indicator readings, adjusting vertical and horizontal alignment and verifying the results.



Course 7 – Computerized and Laser Alignment

Prerequisites: This program is designed for persons that are familiar with the reverse double dial alignment procedure.

Description: This comprehensive DVD training program shows how to set up and use both a computer alignment system and a laser alignment system. This program also shows how to determine bracket sag and how to correct vertical and horizontal misalignment.
