Vibration analysis is a condition monitoring technique and is used to detect the early precursors to machine failure, allowing machinery to be repaired or replaced before occurrence of an expensive failure. All vibrating bodies emit some unique vibration patrons when they are under some specific problems; these patrons are captured through sensors and then undergo comprehensive analysis. Vibration analysis may be undertaken as a stand-alone process, or may be part of a machine section audit or comprehensive machine analysis. Regardless of the scope of the study, a similar process will be followed. The objective is established, a work plan is created, data is gathered using specific tools and sensors, and detailed analyses are carried out. The course provides an in-depth study of machinery faults and their associated spectrum, time waveform and phase characteristics. A Category II analyst is expected to know how to test machines correctly, how to diagnose faults accurately, perform additional diagnostic tests for verification, how to set vibration alarm limits, and how to correct certain types of faults. You need to understand what your analyzer settings mean so that you can take the best measurements. You also need to understand why the vibration patterns change the way they do and how to use time waveform analysis and phase analysis to verify the fault condition.

Terms & Conditions

It is better if you have been performing vibration analysis for more than six months and feel that you have a good understanding of the fundamentals, then you are ready to take the Category II course. (Note that you need 18 months of experience to be certified.) People who want to be confident and able to diagnose a wide range of fault conditions, correct certain conditions, and take specific action should take this course.
