Reliability Engineering for Rotating Equipment

Candidates will gain a good knowledge of maintenance strategies and techniques to improve reliability and availability including conducting an effective 'Failure Mode Effect Analysis' and 'Root Cause Failure Analysis'.

The course also teaches a basic understanding of a system’s life-cycle and understand the financial implications involved with assessing.

Topics Include

  • RCM methods
  • Maintenance strategies and techniques
  • Functions and functional failures
  • Failure modes and effects analysis
  • Maintenance engineering: Maintenance regimes, reactive vs. proactive maintenance; age and block maintenance, Reliability Centered Maintenance, Risk-based maintenance
  • System’s life-cycle: Life-cycle cost analysis, whole-life costing, how to identify key cost drivers Implementing an effective condition monitoring program
  • Key factors that influence selection of CBM techniques
  • Key steps in implementing a CBM program in line with best practice
  • CBM techniques
  • Workshops and case studies: Work in groups to analyze the reliability, availability and maintainability of various systems and components

Introduction to Rotor Dynamics

A two day practical introduction and understanding into turbomachinery rotor dynamics, this introduction will allow clients rotating equipment engineers, technicians to fully understand rotor dynamic reports and key behaviour activity in turbomachinery to aid in longer term understanding of critical equipment reliability on the plant.

The class will learn about normal and troubleshooting rotor behaviour and which information is key to understand common failure modes, the class will focus on real time hands on application using our rotor dynamics kit which will be used throughout.

Topics include:

  • Basic vibration
  • Main causes & consequences of vibration
  • Fatigue basics
  • Basic assessment methodology
  • Qualitative assessment
  • Visual inspection
  • Practical exercise

Root Cause Analysis Facilitatoir Course

A 2 day course which can be delivered at a customer site or at one of our training facilities.

The RCA facilitator course has been designed with an industrial focus for those who wish to eliminate recurring defects, problems and failures. These may be one-off, large failures that have had a safety or financial impact, or those small failures that re-occur often and have a large cumulative financial impact on the customer’s bottom line.

Topics will include:

  • The why and when of RCAs
  • Structured problem solving
  • Threshold criteria
  • Collect and organise data
  • A problem statement
  • Cause and effect analysis
  • Finding solutions
  • RCA reporting and follow up
  • Practical case studies
