Mechanical Maintenance

Coupling Technology

and Maintenance

Course Overview

This Couplings training course will provide an overview of coupling designs and applications for transferring the torque and rotation from the driver shaft to the rotating machine: pump, compressor or turbine. The training course will indicate the importance of good installation, maintenance and failure analysis of couplings.

The topics are specially designed for engineers and technicians that have had limited exposure to couplings and need to upgrade their technical knowledge about coupling characteristics and various operating loads. The focus in the course will be on problem detection, root cause analysis and failure prevention.
