Advanced Rotating Equipment Maintenance and Reliability

Effective maintenance strategies and techniques for rotating equipment are currently saving industries of all sizes millions of dollars on machine maintenance every year.  This concept of saving large amounts on maintenance, however, may be tough for some to grasp.  Maintenance is the largest single controllable expenditure in a plant and in many companies, it often exceeds annual net profit.  The problem of costly maintenance has truly reached a serious level, but as some companies have found out and more come to realize every day, their maintenance costs can be cut drastically by establishing the correct maintenance strategies.

By attending the masterclass, you will learn how to apply the correct tool sets for effective maintenance management by applying the appropriate maintenance technique identified through conducting FMEA & RCA to understand how an asset may fail and how the failure can be prevented or the risk mitigated.  This interactive workshop is designed to explain the effective method of component condition monitoring for use as both a predictive maintenance and root cause analysis tool.  It also details the major failure causes, the world-class proven root cause analysis procedure with exercises and case histories, installation, pre-commissioning planning, functional testing and commissioning, precision maintenance strategies and more.

Top Learning Objectives

  • Apply key elements of reliability to your rotating equipment maintenance programme including condition monitoring and FMEA
  • Understand how the correct maintenance strategies and techniques will improve availability of the rotating equipment
  • Discover how different condition monitoring techniques operate and how they can complement each other as well as being stand-alone techniques
  • Learn how to implement best practices in lubrication, alignment, balancing, rolling element bearings and understand the benefits of getting these corrects
  • Discover the anomalies and the failure modes of rotating equipment and how these can be used to calculate reliability
  • Understand the difference between FMEA, FMECA & RCM to identify the criticality of assets, prioritize tasks and apply the correct techniques
  • Review physics of equipment failure patterns and maintenance effect on reliability and know thoroughly how maintenance influences equipment performance
  • Increase awareness and understanding of Root Cause Analysis (RCA) by through the process step by step using your own examples and working in team format to arrive at the root cause and determine a solution
