This is a five-day course on Rotary Machinery Preventive and Predictive Maintenance. Different maintenance strategies will be discussed; elements of each maintenance strategy, their advantages and disadvantages will be explored. The selection of the appropriate strategy that fit the mode of failure and results in the minimum time between repair and that leads to least down time and maintenance cost is one of the maintenance engineer duty that must be mastered. Tools and measurements involved in each maintenance strategy must also be recognized and deeply understood. To apply the above techniques effectively on the Rotary Machinery, one should be aware of their failure modes, and methods of troubleshooting. The above will applied on different type of Rotary Machinery like pumps, compressors, and Turbines.


Engineers, technicians and managers responsible for selection, installation, machinery failure analysis, troubleshooting and maintenance of different rotary machines like pumps, compressors, fans, blowers, steam turbines, gas turbines will benefit from this course.
