    Testimonials

    I have recently written (and passed!) my C of Q exam in Kingston, and wanted to thank you for the work that you put in teaching me to think like a millwright. "Proper planning prevents poor performance" is something to live by really...
     
    The C of Q had lots of procedure questions, what to do and when, and I found a lot of the questions involved turbines to some degree. There were a couple of questions involving troubleshooting a hydraulic system using a given schematic, and more than a couple of questions covering all aspects of vibration analysis. Here are some of the ideas that I remember seeing.
     
    - Bevel protractor and mic readings
    - Crane lift signals involving movement of the boom
    - Good old Pythagoras
    - Sling types and % of SWL (choker, basket)
    - Regular lifting vs. lifting people ratios
    - What to check on a crane if it starts to become out of alignment
    - What tool to use when checking continuity in an electric motor
    - F = A x P
    - Actuator problems in pneumatic circuit (erratic operation, how to fix 'hammer')
    - Proper placement of a sequencing valve in a hydraulic circuit
    - How and where to check pipe stresses after pump install
    - Procedure of motor install to existing pump
    - Procedure for drain/check/fill of a fan bearing
    - Possible cause of immediate bearing failure upon startup in a condensate pump after long shut down
    - Solution to vibration in turbine rotor
    - How many/which bearings to fix in a multi bearing system
    - Material handling rollers turning corners and weight ratios (4 rollers hold 30 tons, how much should 2 rollers be rated for)
    - Fan speed ratios (CFM/HP)
    - Alignment readings, figuring out where and how much to shim
    - Belt splice angles for belts on small diameter pulleys
    - Which way to face spring pin in roller chain when installing
    - Where to place vibration analysis equipment for couplings and closed gear boxes
    - Where unbalance and coupling misalignment shows in vibration readings
    - The difference between predictive and preventative maintenance and what each entail.
     
    I hope that some or all of this will help in preparing another squad for success. 
     
    Cheers!
