What can you expect to learn in ECS 1 : Assembly and Installation?
Upon completion of this course students will understand the procedures needed for effective installation and operation of rotating equipment. Topics include; correction of common assembly errors, typical machinery case and associated pipe strain distortion problems, steps to obtain precise, documented and known “cold” machinery alignment, balance retention and how to improve asset balance
quality, and review a “performance” report that states
as found and as left conditions with the use of dynamic
measurement tools to extend asset reliability. Attendees
will have a better appreciation of how bearing and
lubrication failures degrade machine life. Participants
gain the knowledge of how correct procedures and
processes must be in place to reach reliable
manufacturing goals. Attendees will use these
procedures and processes as part of an ASD/RCA
processes for developing equipment care strategies
and determining true failure root causes. Students will return to the plant with the ability to review current practices and suggest improvements for the use of precision tools, machine assembly / installation procedures and practices.
We start by introducing attendees to the various maintenance philosophies and where each is correct. Next, is an understanding of how technicians can use overall and bearing specific vibration instrumentation to discover and prove machinery improvements. Attention is paid to coupling assemblies and their purpose, rolling element bearing types and their applications, belt drives, and precise alignment principles. Torque requirements and procedures, common assembly errors and the difference between reliability and run-ability are also discussed. A special section on measuring tools, lubrication techniques and doing the job right the first time are provided. Technicians use hands-on, live and dynamic demonstrators with exercises to reinforce correct principles and practice new techniques. Attendees will find the seminar informative, loaded with practical tips, and finish with a renewed sense
of readiness and a fresh approach to
maintenance activities. This crucial
foundation course assists technicians
to develop correct assessment, measurement,
troubleshooting and precise reliability
improvement habits. This initial module
develops techniques and corrections for
“facility common” errors that may constitute
as much as 70% of facility failures.
