Webinar Description:

In this live webinar, the basics behind fluid film bearings and the current and new monitoring solutions are explained. For the last 40 to 50 years, the industry standard to monitor bearing wear or machine problems on the most process critical and expensive equipment in each plant, has been the proximity probe. We will review case studies of real machine problems which were detected and identified using this new technology. Different applications will be shown, from Diesel Engines, to Turbines and High-Speed Compressors.  This webinar is a must-attend for all rotating equipment specialists and maintenance professionals!

Learning Takeaways:

  1. Basic theory behind fluid film bearings and the current monitoring techniques
  2. Principle behind the new technology of the Force Detection Sensor
  3. Data examples, comparing different measurement technologies

About the Presenter

After graduating as an electro-mechanical engineer, specializing in maintenance, I worked for a predictive maintenance company actively using all existing predictive maintenance technologies throughout various different industries. After a few years I started working for PRUFTECNIK Benelux as an application engineer involving high-end troubleshooting using on and offline vibration measurements. I also had the responsibility for all online condition monitoring projects, from initial design to installation and remote monitoring. In 2014 I moved to the US office of PRUFTECHNIK, where we are setting up a condition monitoring department to serve the US market on all CM-related topics, including proactive maintenance, remote (temporary) monitoring, trouble shooting and torque measurements.
