Duration: 5
Country: Istanboul / Turkey
Category: Engineering and Technical Programs

Course Description

 Emphasis shall be laid on topics relevant to mechanical equipment types and functions, varieties of mechanical drivers and driven equipment  (Engines, turbines, compressors, pumps), common mechanical components such as bearings, mechanical seal, gaskets, impellers, mechanical interfaces with process, mechanical codes and standards, pressure vessels, pipes, valves and fittings.

 Operations and maintenance scheduling and planning will be addressed too. It will also cover Overall Equipment Effectiveness considerations (Availability, Reliability, Efficiency and Utilization) and basic mechanical selection criterion for mechanical equipment
