Webinar Description:

Vibration is a powerful tool that, when measured correctly, can give you a clear picture of the health of your machine—bringing to light any potential problems, like a misalignment, imbalance, or a bad bearing.
How does it do this? When analyzing the data, vibration waves will reveal excessive wear and tear on mechanical components. In industrial settings, it can detect machinery abnormalities such as motors, bearings, compressors, and gearboxes. In this webinar, AME President Rich Merhige will run through vibration-preventing practices to help you identify problems before they become costly and severe failures.

Learning Takeaways:

1. Vibration data can put a finger on the root cause of mechanical breakdowns, preventing time-wasting searching and testing and allowing      repairs to be implemented faster.
2. Vibration analysis increases machinery uptime, reducing mechanical repairs and maximizing production.
3. Because vibration analysis provides hard data about machinery conditions, operators always know their equipment’s health status.
4. Overcoming mechanical issues requires increased demand for energy. Vibration analysis detects these issues and alerts the maintenance       team to make repairs that return machinery back to peak operational performance.
