Introduction to



Course Overview

This training program is a MUST for anyone who is want to be a part of the world of “Rotating Equipment Engineering” and involved in the selection, applications, or maintenance of rotating equipment.

Most of plant equipment are rotary. Therefore, understanding the principles of rotating equipment is very essential. Identification of failure modes and monitoring methods of failure symptom are important as well, for establishing the most effective maintenance program. This course begins with discussing the definition of rotating equipment, their types and their primary functions, as well as the general characteristics of rotating equipment in relation with their performance. Then, a detailed discussion on primary rotating equipment, namely pumps, compressors, turbines and fans/blowers, will be given. The discussion includes the classification for each type, the performance characteristics, the frequent failure modes and how those equipment operates. This course is notifying for alignment and latest maintenance techniques for rotating equipment.
