Preventive Maintenance Seminars

More than 1,100 maintenance personnel from more than 250 different companies have attended these workshops over the past 8 years. The workshops are designed to cover most areas of preventive maintenance practices, as well as alignment methods, shell ovality or flexing, and roller adjustment and skew.

The workshops are separated into two sessions although they are similar for about 75% of their content. Kiln Workshops cover the additional topics of; Troubleshooting Refractory and Shell Ovality. The Dryer Workshop (a dryer is our generic term for any two pier, non-refractory lined drum which can be a tumbler, cooler, granulator, etc) has a different alignment presentation. Since most 2-pier units have rollers fitted with spherical roller bearings a presentation is made specifically on this topic.

Both workshops comprise approximately 12 hours of material presented in a series of topics as listed below over a 3 day period. Starting Tuesday at 8:00 am finishing Thursday afternoon.
