LIVE WEBINARS

Our No Excuses for Equipment and Bearing Failures Workshops go Digital

 

We can’t wait to safely resume our popular #NoExcuses hands-on workshops. For now, please join us virtually and learn from our highly experienced instructors. Topics covered include how to use condition monitoring technologies to reduce equipment and bearing failures and downtime, thus improving safety and extending asset life.

Our November webinar series will include four short technical presentations complemented by a live demonstration utilizing the technology (in lieu of hands-on), and a Q&A via a live chat with the presenters —all in 60 minutes each and complimentary!

Each learning session includes a downloadable handout to follow along with and a Certificate of Completion at the end of each one. Register now!

Align Belt-Driven Machinery Precisely

November 10th - 11:00 AM EST

Presenter: Adam Stredel, CRL, ASNT Level1 Ultrasound

Featured Technology: Laser Alignment

In this webinar, you will learn the basics of sheave/pulley alignment, from checking sheave runout to aligning to tolerances and documentation. We will go through our 5-Step Sheave/Pulley Alignment Procedure and what key aspects should be paid more attention to.

Takeaways:

  • Soft Foot checks are not only done during coupling alignment.
  • Align sheaves/pulleys to precision.
  • Importance of documenting the alignment work.

A live demonstration will be used to address these topics, and a Q&A session will be held afterward.

Measure Machine Movement Properly (Thermal Growth and Pipe Stress)

November 12th - 11:00 AM EST

Presenter: Chris Greene, CRL, V-CAT-I, ASNT Level1 Ultrasound

Featured Technology: Laser Alignment

Learn how to use a laser system to take precision measurements normally associated with dial indicators. We will look at physical positional changes that normally occur with equipment during an installation, or during startup and operation. This webinar will include soft foot checks (at the actual foot), pipe stress across a joint, and changes brought on by temperature or torque. This webinar will also look at measurements that are part of a commissioning report for new equipment installation. Clear information and how to document the data is the most important part of any checks done for warranty and to prove that a machine is ready to run —and we will give a path forward to using the latest technology to get it done!

Takeaways:

  • Learn how to take measurements not normally associated with lasers.
  • Document the information in a way that is clear for anyone to understand.
  • Solve common problems experienced in field operations, by looking at data gathered from a precision laser tool.

The live demonstration will be used to address these topics, and a Q&A session will be held afterward.

Takeaways:

  • Why balance? How to confirm an unbalance condition.
  • Learn about the types of unbalance.
  • Discuss the importance of a balancing procedure and proper documentation.

A live demonstration will be used to address these topics, and a Q&A session will be held afterward.

  • Thank you for the excellent webinars! I learned a lot. Your team did a very nice job modifying the training for a web audience rather than a live audience. I'm sure it is difficult to do this kind of training without getting feedback cues from the audience, and they did an excellent job with it.
