This course is about why bearings fail and it provides the knowledge to understanding and recognize the different types of failure modes. The skills learnt in this course help prevent the reoccurrance of bearing failures. The three main goals in providing this training course are:
- to understand why bearings fail, be it because of lack of maintenance, poor lubrication or simply bearing ignorance issues.
- to learn how to recognize the different types of bearing failures and understand the causes of the damage.
- to learn about what we can do to prevent bearing failures happening and avoid the failures from re-occurring.
This course, while specifically developed for process operators who regularly deal with centrifugal pumps, can serve a wide range of training needs. The information contained in this course is of immense value for maintenance, reliability professionals and engineers who regularly detail with this equipment. The training materials address key pump variables and factors under the operator’s control, while minimizing the use of design theory and mathematics.
