A predictive maintenance program is essentially an extension of the preventive maintenance program commonly found at most industrial sites, is based on the actual condition of the component and employs monitoring and includes trending of component operating conditions.  In this fashion a failure of the component can be predicted and averted by performance of minor maintenance at a convenient time, such as during a scheduled outage.

Predictive maintenance programs require a significant amount of analytical ability.  Since this is the case, it is not suitable for all types of plant equipment.  The equipment failure modes for those components in the program must be evaluated and the failure indicators periodically trended.  To perform these parts of the program requires considerable skill and knowledge, along with specialized equipment.  With this in mind we need to analyze the elements of a predictive maintenance program.
  • Keep Operating Equipment Running
  • Reduce Forced Outage Occurrences
Predictive Maintenance Programs go a long way to reducing forced outages and in this Seminar you will learn:
  • Predictive Maintenance Techniques
  • Plant Equipment Selection
  • Selection of Monitoring Techniques and Monitoring Equipment
  • Frequency of Monitoring
  • Trend Analysis of Monitoring Data
As Management, you are not only required to manage the day-to-day maintenance activities, but also maintain records, trend problem areas and find the causes of recurring problems in your plant. In this Seminar we will deal with the reduction of “unplanned” or “in-service-failure” of key equipment through the use of Predictive Maintenance Programs and Condition Monitoring. We will also look at the trending of certain monitoring areas on equipment that cannot be spared (Critical Equipment).

OBJECTIVES:
At the completion of this Seminar the participant will be able to:
  1. State the elements which make up a Predictive Maintenance program
  2. Discuss the factors which go into selection of equipment to be covered in a Predictive Maintenance Program

  4. Describe the philosophy used to develop a predictive maintenance program
  5. Discuss how goals for the predictive maintenance program are developed
  6. State the different types of Predictive Maintenance Program organizations
  7. Discuss each type of program organization
  8. Describe the advantages and disadvantages of the different types of organizations
  9. List the requirements for organizing each different type of program
  10. Discuss the requirements for the various personnel positions within the predictive maintenance program
  11. Discuss the criteria for selection of the program personnel
  12. Describe the training requirements for a typical Predictive Maintenance program
  13. List the steps involved in performing a detailed personnel needs analysis
  14. State the theory of an oil analysis-monitoring program
  15. Discuss the requirements for an oil analysis
  16. Explain the terminology used in vibration analysis
  17. Describe the common causes of vibration
  18. State the theories and applications for acoustic leak monitoring
  19. State the theories and applications for an ultrasonic transducer system
  20. State the theories and applications for thermography.
