PREVENTING ELECTRIC MOTOR FAILURE TRAINING

Course Overview

This course is 4 days of intensive and practical courses. This course has been designed based upon decades of experience repairing and maintaining electrical machines. The approach is to identify the main types of failures, and then to identify the available options for companies to reduce or prevent each type of failure.

These courses are practical, including shop inspection of various repairs and procedures in progress. Elements of shop and on-site electrical testing and vibration analysis are included in each course.

The objective is that personnel can return to their plants, equipped to identify situations which place their motors at risk thus giving them the option of doing something to improve their reliability.

TURBINE MAINTENANCE TRAINING

Course Overview

This practical course is designed for rotating equipment specialists, millwrights, technicians, and engineers who are involved in the maintenance and operation of single and multi-stage, single valve industrial steam turbines.

Major topics covered include principles of operation and design, maintenance and operation of major turbine components (rotors, bearings, governors, lubrication systems, and casing), piping systems strain and supports, turbine alignment and thermal growth, and shop balancing.

 

VIBRATION ANALYSIS & CERTIFICATION

Course Overview

NorthPoint Training Centre offers a Vibration Analysis Training Program that is generally compliant with the ISO 18436–2 standard for personnel involved in non-destructive testing, condition monitoring and machinery diagnostics, offering the appropriate theoretical and practical hands-on knowledge of vibration measurement and analysis. The ISO 18436-2 standard stipulates theory covered is non-product specific to ensure that concepts are grasped prior to introducing instrumentation technology. The courses are recognized by the Engineering Institute of Canada for Continuing Education Units (CEU’s).

 

 

1 & 2 PLANE BALANCING TRAINING

Course Summary

Safely, quickly and cost-effectively field balance machinery. NorthPoint Training Centre uses advanced 1 & 2 plane balancing rotor kits to simulate real life situations, to deliver a practical, hands-on training experience. Students first learn single plane balancing, progressing to 2-plane balancing.

Both graphic and computerized methods will be taught in this course. Computer methods give speed and accurate computation; graphical methods give common sense and best plane selection that computers alone cannot give.

Powerful techniques taught: use trial weight data to troubleshoot looseness, poor bases and resonance. Use the variable bandwidth, tracking vector filter to reject interference from adjacent vibrating machinery, for faster and easier balancing.

Collect 4-channel horizontal and vertical vibration data from each of 2 bearings for even more powerful machine troubleshooting. Save and recall data to software. Quickly create reports. Do one-run balancing on similar projects.

*Progressing to 2 plane balancing ONLY when single plane concepts are grasped and understood fully.
