Machinery Health Management is the topic of four new classes added to Emerson Process Management’s educational services offerings for in 2007. The courses reflect technology innovations released by Emerson in the last seven months, and customer requests for expanded offerings in these areas. Courses include:

  • Turbomachinery Diagnostics using the CSI 4500 Machinery Health Monitor with Transient capabilities %%MDASSML%% A 5-day class that covers details of the operation, maintenance, management, diagnostics and design of rotating machinery using vibration information. Emphasis is placed on interpreting start-up/shutdown and steady state vibration data plots, understanding the sources of rotating machinery vibration and recognizing common machinery malfunctions. Students receive a copy of Fundamentals of Rotating Machinery Diagnostics, written by vibration monitoring pioneer and rotor dynamics researcher Donald E. Bentley.

  • CSI 9210 Machinery Health Transmitter %%MDASSML%% A 2-day course intended for systems operators and engineering personnel responsible for analyzing data collected from essential motor-pump machine trains. The course covers the fundamentals of configuration, application, data interpretation and sensor installation for the CSI 9210 Machinery Health Transmitter.

  • Laser Alignment for the CSI 2130 Machinery Health Analyzer %%MDASSML%% A 2.5-day course that includes hands-on training using horizontal alignment demonstrators and the CSI 2130 Machinery Health Analyzer. The course includes management of an alignment program using the AMS Suite: Machinery Health Manager software application.

  • Advanced CSI 2130 Machinery Health Analyzer with PeakVue technology %%MDASSML%% A course intended for personnel with single-channel vibration analysis experience and little or no multi-channel experience. The course covers advanced signal processing using Emerson’s patented PeakVue technology for slow-speed analysis, transient capabilities, coherence and cross-channel phase, operating deflection shapes (ODS), modal analysis and other advanced techniques.
