Data Analysis & Diagnostics Course for the Hydro Industry

Hosted by Avista at their Spokane, WA headquarters.

Please join us in Spokane, Washington on November 17, 18 and 19, 2015 where our Tests & Diagnostics Manager, Mr. André Tétreault, will be presenting this 3-day Course.

VibroSystM’s (3) three day data analysis & diagnostics course will show you how the investment you have made in machine condition monitoring will translate into a key stepping stone to improve your hydro asset performance. This course will provide you with the necessary tools to view, analyze and diagnose various hydro machine anomalies, help you commission newly refurbished machines, enforce warranty terms, and better manage your valuable machines for years to come.

A wide variety of case studies ranging from small to large hydro units will be presented and examined throughout the course.
