Transducer Operation & Maintenance Semimar


Our Transducer Operation & Maintenance seminar covers the range of field transducers used in vibration monitoring systems. We cover the transducers used in the vibration monitoring systems for most steam & gas turbine applications, and other critical machinery. This is a hands-on, workshop intensive course! Learn the operational theory & how to calibrate proximity transducer systems, accelerometers, Velomitors, LVDTs, magnetic pickups and more. Also learn how to properly setup transducers for important measurements such as rotor thrust (axial position), rotor differential expansion (DE), and casing expansion.

Seminars can be performed on-site at your plant. We can also perform this seminar at hotels for centralized training, and at resort based locations for a specialized experience.

This seminar can be combined with our 3500 Monitoring System course, to provide a complete instrumentation overview for any staff involved in vibration monitoring and analysis.
