An intense 5-day, Hands-On class where teams of craftsmen, planners, supervisors, superintendents, engineers, and maintenance/operating managers learn and practice precision equipment assembly, rebuild, and install techniques; each designed to significantly double, triple, and (in our own plant experience) quadruple rotating equipment & seal life.
The participants measure their own progress by running their simulator machines and measuring the results. The effects of applying precision techniques to rotating equipment have proven to greatly extend the mean time between failure and/or scheduled maintenance to rebuild events of the equipment and other components by reducing vibration, temperature, & amps or energy usage.
We show all the necessary “little details” that are overlooked every day by maintenance, contractors, supervisors, and yes, even engineers in most plants – and in many rebuild shops. We lead participants to discover their new skill sets by measuring their simulators’ results after correcting errors 1 by 1 in a very defined process.
They learn how something as “insignificant” as a few thousandths of an inch fit and tolerance (or a “correct” key length), can make a significant difference in life improvement of your rotating equipment. They demonstrate how their new attention to detail can also lower the electrical consumption 5 to 10% for most electric motor-driven assets when a precision approach is applied to maintenance (install, adjust, and rebuild).
