Master the knowledge and techniques to see the future
An organization with skilled condition monitoring technicians and analysts experiences lower maintenance costs and higher plant reliability. Condition monitoring allows us to detect the onset of failure and detect when the conditions exist that will cause future failures. Coupled with an effective planning and scheduling process, maintenance costs and production downtime can be dramatically reduced.
Rotating machinery, electrical equipment, and practically every other type of equipment you may operate in your plant provide an indication when failure is initiated, for example, when the bearing has the smallest crack forming. While it is necessary to understand how equipment fails, as a general comment, we can achieve anywhere from weeks, months, and even years of warning before failure occurs. That enables us to establish a corrective maintenance plan and schedule the work at the optimal time in order to reduce spare parts holding costs, the time required to perform the corrective maintenance, and the impact on production. Avoiding catastrophic failure obviously reduces the safety and environmental risks, and the possibility of secondary damage. Proper planning increases the quality of the work performed and reduces safety risks for the person performing the work.
It takes skill and dedication
But it takes a skilled group of technicians and analysts to conduct the right tests, at the right time, and correctly diagnose the problem and assess the severity. And it takes a skilled leader to manage the condition monitoring program to ensure everyone is trained and certified and the program is established correctly.
Mobius™ has the growth path to master condition monitoring
Mobius Institute™, and its worldwide authorized partners, provide training that equips technicians, analysts, and CBM leaders with the necessary skills so they can competently and confidently perform their critical roles.
Understanding how the equipment works, how they fail, how the symptoms of failure change over time, and how to correctly take the required measurements, requires detailed knowledge of the equipment and the instrumentation. Mobius Institute takes pride in the fact that we are recognized as the leaders in this form of training. We provide simulations that explain how the machinery and instrumentation work, and animations that enable you to visualize exactly what is going on.
No guesswork, no trying to remember complex concepts and techniques, we educate you so that you understand. It’s only when you understand that you can solve problems.
