Vibration Analysis Category 2

Vibration Analysis Category 2 is ideal for those who have been performing vibration analysis for more than twelve months and already have a good understanding of the fundamentals, and now want to become more confident and accurate in their diagnoses and reporting.

Candidates who complete this course will understand how to set up an analyser for routine data collection, take accurate measurements, be capable of diagnosing a range of fault conditions and be confident in validating their test results in accordance with applicable specifications and standards.

This course is based on the ISO 18436-2 certification program for vibration analysis category 2. The course runs over four days with an additional half day for review and optional BINDT PCN certification exam.

Course Objectives

  • Select the appropriate machinery vibration measurement technique.
  • Set up instruments for basic resolution of amplitude, frequency and time.
  • Perform basic vibration analysis of machinery and components such as shafts, bearings, gears, fans, pumps and motors using spectrum analysis.
  • Maintain a database of results and trends.
  • Perform single-channel impact tests.
  • Classify, interpret, and evaluate test results in accordance with applicable specifications and standards.
  • Recommend minor corrective actions, and understand basic single plane field balancing concepts.

Course Topics

  • Principles of Vibration
  • Data Acquisition
  • Signal Processing
  • Condition Monitoring
  • Fault Analysis
  • Corrective Action
  • Equipment Knowledge
  • Acceptance Testing
  • Equipment Testing and Diagnostics
  • Reference Standards
  • Reporting and Documentation
  • Fault Severity Determination

Course Assessment

You will undergo a series of formative assessments throughout the duration of the course. Towards the end of the course, there will an internal summative assessments in the form of a written exam. Candidates will be expected to achieve a +70% overall score in order to pass.

The BINDT certification exam can be taken immediately after successful completion of the course, but the certification can only be awarded after the attendee has logged 18 months relevant vibration analysis experience.

Vibration Analysis Category 1

Vibration Analysis Category 1 is intended for personnel who are new to vibration monitoring and analysis, and want to learn the fundamentals to perform a range of simple single-channel machinery vibration condition monitoring and diagnostics of machines activities.

Candidates who complete this course will come away with a good understanding on how to collect accurate vibration measurements, recognise common vibration characteristics produced by basic machine faults, have a good awareness of key international standards covering vibration condition monitoring, and be able to report on visual observations of equipment condition.

This course is based on the ISO 18436-2 certification program for vibration analysis category 1. The course runs over four days with an additional half day for review and optional BINDT PCN certification exam.

Course Objectives

  • Know of the basic principles of vibration and recognise the different units of measurement.
  • Be able to collect reliable data, ensuring appropriate standards of repeatability.
  • Be able to identify errors in the collected data.
  • Can retrieve predefined measurement settings for use with VA equipment and transfer data between a data collector and vibration database.
  • Capable of comparing overall or single-value vibration measurements against pre-established alert settings.
  • Be able to identify deviations from the norm for single-value vibration values and trends.
  • Report on visual observations of equipment condition.

Course Topics

  • Principles of Vibration
  • Data Acquisition
  • Signal Processing
  • Condition Monitoring
  • Fault Analysis
  • Corrective Action
  • Equipment Knowledge
  • Acceptance Testing

Course Assessment

You will undergo a series of formative assessments throughout the duration of the course. Towards the end of the course, there will be two internal summative assessments in the form of a practical and written exam. Candidates will be expected to achieve a +70% overall score in order to pass. The BINDT certification exam can be taken immediately after successful completion of the course, but the certification can only be awarded after the attendee has logged 6 months relevant vibration analysis experience.

Motion & Vibration Tracking using Video Deflection Technology

At the PCMS Eng Group, we are always looking for ways to add value to our current service by utilising cutting edge technology to monitor machine health.

That’s why we’ve recently invested in video deflection technology; vibration analysis software that tracks small movements in ordinary video recordings to detect failures related to low frequency and phase such as imbalance, misalignment, mechanical looseness etc.
