Duration: 1 hour
Electrical maintenance professionals have several technologies at their disposal to implement a predictive maintenance program. But with such choices, there are trade-offs.
This webinar will explore four common predictive maintenance technologies: ultrasonic analysis, vibration analysis, infrared thermography, and electric motor current signature analysis.
Gene Vogel, Pump & Vibration Specialist for the Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA), will discuss the best uses for each of these technologies as well as what information can and should be monitored. He will also cover how to interpret the information and apply those concepts in the field as well as describe the specific limitations of each technology – essential information to consider when selecting a specific predictive maintenance strategy.
Attendees will come away with all the tools they need to make more informed predictive maintenance decisions that will ultimately translate into cost savings, increased operational efficiency, and reduced downtime.
Pump and Vibration Specialist
Before joining EASA as Pump and Vibration Specialist, Gene Vogel operated his own business, General Maintenance Equipment/Engineering, Inc. (GME), a marketing, service and training organization for industrial maintenance and related technologies. Among other courses, he taught a "Pumps and Pump Systems" seminar for American Trainco. He also has an extensive background in vibration and dynamic balancing and chaired the St. Louis Chapter of the Vibration Institute from 1993 to 2000.
