Mobius CAT I Vibration Analysis
Principles of vibration
Introduction to vibration measurement
An introduction to the time waveform
An introduction to the spectrum
An introduction to forcing frequencies
Explaining the different vibration units
A brief introduction to phase
A quick review of data acquisition
How do we measure vibration?
Where to place the sensor on the machine
Understanding axial, radial, vertical, and horizontal readings
A quick introduction to mounting the accelerometer and surface preparation
What are “routes” and how do you create them?
A quick tour of your analyzer
The spectrum analysis process
What is resonance – a quick introduction
Diagnosing common fault conditions
Setting alarm limits
The course focuses on periodic, single channel data collection and analysis for condition based maintenance programs. A foundation is established for in-depth understanding of spectrum and waveform relationships.
This is the ideal starting place for new vibration analysts, people collecting vibration data, and those who want a better understanding of vibration analysis and condition monitoring. You will come away from this course with a very good understanding of the fundamentals; you will understand how to take good measurements (and understand the importance of repeatability) and you will be ready to begin analyzing vibration spectra.
7 am - 3 pm
1 hour lunch
The Vibration Analysis Cat I course is intended for personnel who are new to vibration monitoring and analysis, and for mechanical / technical personnel who have limited vibration analysis experience.
Some mechanical experience is a plus but not mandatory
