Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-the-art simulators. This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview of couplings and shaft alignment. It covers the types, application and operation of couplings including its classification and rigid characteristics; the parameters of couplings for pumps, compressors and turbines; the advantages and disadvantages of different types of couplings; the installation, maintenance and troubleshooting of couplings; the installation best practices, safety issues the coupling inspection in operation; and vibration monitoring and analysis, preventive maintenance, condition monitoring, failure prevention and troubleshooting. During this interactive course, participants will learn the shaft alignment basics including the need for shaft alignment, shaft misalignment effects and misalignment types; the measuring techniques and rim and face alignment method; the alignment measurement methods; the effect of misalignment on bearings and seals; the vibration monitoring results as indication of misalignment; the effect of misalignment on seals of pumps and compressors; and the leakage control and prevention. link to course overview PDF
