Vibration Institute Eastern US Regional Conference Agenda Announced

Co-located with the Society of Machinery Failure Prevention Technology conference, the Vibration Institute’s Eastern US Regional Conference will feature 2 days of technical presentations along with an exhibitor networking reception. Covering a wide-variety of vibration topics such as pumps, sensor technology, motion amplification, and IoT wireless technology, and much more. Don’t miss this opportunity to earn CEUs, gain knowledge and network with peers and industry experts. In addition, attendees can sign-up for two full-day tutorials on the Monday prior to the conference. Taught by the Hydraulic Institute this course, Optimizing Pumping Systems for Increased Reliability and Efficiency, covers mpact of proper pump design & selection on reliability and efficiency, importance of pump system optimization and impact on reliability, and best practices in pump system and  installation and commissioning and much more. The other course, Vibration Problems & Solutions in Turbomachinery and Centrifugal Pumps, taught by the Turbomachinery Laboratory covers the basic concepts as well as intermediate and advanced techniques for measuring, interpreting, and mediating vibration in turbomachinery and centrifugal pumps. These full-day tutorials are an additional $750.
