Bearing – MECHANICAL

Bearings have played a pivotal role in the nascent Industrial Revolution, allowing the new industrial machinery to operate efficiently. The term “Bearing” is derived from the verb “to bear”, a bearing being a machine element that allows one part to bear (i.e. to support) another. The simplest bearings are bearing surfaces cut or formed into a part, with varying degrees of control over the form, size, roughness or location of the surface. Thus, the module focuses on how bearings play a major role in the proper functioning of heavy machinery.

MEASURING INSTRUMENTS – MECHANICAL

A Measuring Instrument is a device for measuring a physical quantity. In the physical sciences, quality assurance, and engineering, measurement is the activity of obtaining and comparing physical quantities of real world objects and events. Established standard objects and events are used as units, and the process of measurement gives a number relating the item under study and the referenced unit of measurement. Measuring instruments and formal test methods which define the instruments use, are the means by which these relations of numbers are obtained. All the measuring instruments are subject to varying degrees of instrument error and measurement uncertainty. Hence this module gives us details that are used in the industry for accurate and precise measurements.

HEAT TREATMENT- MECHANICAL/METALLURGY

Heat Treatment is the heating and cooling of metals to change their physical and mechanical properties without letting it change its shape.

Heat Treatment could be said to be a method for strengthening materials but could also be used to alter some mechanical properties such as improving formability, machining etc. The module has different Heat Treatment process that is required to change the physical and chemical properties of metals.

BULK MATERIAL HANDLING – MECHANICAL

Bulk Material Handling is an engineering field that is centred on the design of equipment used for the handling of dry materials. Bulk materials are those dry materials which are powdery, granular or lumpy in nature and are stored in heaps. Examples of Bulk Materials are minerals, ores, coal, cereals, woodchips, sand, gravel, clay, cement, ash, salt, chemicals, grain, sugar, flour and stone in loose bulk form. It can also relate to the handling of mixed wastes. Bulk Material Handling is an essential part of all industries that process bulk ingredients including food, beverage, confectionery, pet food, animal feed, tobacco, chemical, agriculture, polymer, plastic, rubber, ceramic, electronics, metals, minerals, paint, paper, textiles and more. The purpose of a Bulk Material Handling facility may be to transport material from one of several locations (i.e. source) to an ultimate destination or to process material such as ore in concentrating or smelting or handling materials for manufacturing such as logs, wood chips, and sawdust at sawmills and paper mills. Other industries using bulk materials handling include flour mills and coal-fired utility boilers. Providing storage and inventory control and possibly material blending is usually part of a Bulk Material Handling   system. In ports handling large quantities of bulk materials continuous ship uploaders are replacing gantry cranes. The module provides entire concept of Material Handling in big industry.

INDUSTRIAL WATER SYSTEM – MECHANICAL

Water Treatment is used to optimize most water based industrial processes such as heating, cooling, processing, cleaning, and rinsing so that operating costs and risks are reduced. Poor water treatment lets water interact with the surface of pipes and vessels which contain it. Steam boilers can scale up or corrode, but left untreated, the warm, dirty water they can contain will encourage bacteria to grow and Legionnaires’ disease can be fatal consequence. Water Treatment is also used to improve the quality of water contacting the manufactured product e.g. semiconductors, and/or can be part of the product e.g. beverages, pharmaceuticals, etc. In these instances, poor water treatment can cause defective products. This module on Industrial water treatment encompasses all these aspects which include industrial wastewater treatment, boiler water treatment and cooling water treatment.

COUPLING – MECHANICAL

A shaft coupling is a mechanical component that connects the drive shaft and driven shaft of a motor, pump etc., to transmit power. Shaft couplings introduce mechanical flexibility, providing tolerance for shaft misalignment. As a result, this coupling flexibility can reduce uneven wear on the bearing, equipment vibration, and other mechanical troubles due to misalignment. Shaft couplings serve as an important link to minimize impact and vibration, allowing smooth rotation to be transmitted. This module covers the concept of coupling, its usages and introduction to various rigid and flexible couplings used in industries.

INDUSTRIAL VALVES – MECHANICAL

A valve is a device or natural object that regulates, directs or controls the flow of a fluid (gases, liquids, fluidized solids, or slurries) by opening, closing, or partially obstructing various passageways. Valves are technically fittings, but are usually discussed as a separate category. Valves have various usages, including controlling water for irrigation, industrial uses for controlling processes, residential uses such as on/off and pressure control to dish and clothes washers and taps in the home. In this module one can learn about the types of valves, functions, parts, advantages & disadvantages of different valves, selection of valves, specification, suitability of valve, operation and maintenance.

LEVELLING & ALIGNMENT – MECHANICAL

Performance of any moving machines largely depend on accuracy of installation and erection. Levelling and alignment are the basic maintenance practices carried out during the commissioning of any machineries which ensures the reliability. With this e-learning module the audience will enhance their knowledge on levelling and alignment. In this module one can learn the basic concept of leveling, various methods of levelling, critical check points and standards required to be maintained during the levelling. Similarly, in Alignment, the concept behind various types of misalignment, measurement of misalignment values, corrective methods and pre-alignment checks as well as the critical check points and their adjustment have been well explained in the module. The module also covers the latest alignment technique, Laser technique.

CENTRIFUGAL PUMPS – MECHANICAL

Centrifugal Pumps are the most popular and commonly used pump for the transfer of fluids. In simple words, it is a pump that uses a rotating impeller to move water or other fluids by using centrifugal force. These are the undisputed pump choice especially for delivering liquid from one location to another in numerous industries including agriculture, municipal (water and wastewater plants), industrial, power generation plants, petroleum, mining, chemical, pharmaceutical, and many others. This module helps learn various types of centrifugal pump, its working mechanism, function of its various components, classification of centrifugal pump, advantages & disadvantages of etc.

LIMITS FITS & TOLERANCES – MECHANICAL

The module on Limit Fit & Tolerance will help you understand its importance, concept and impact on mass production and maintenance. In the early days, majority of the components were matted together, their dimensions being adjusted until the required type of fit was obtained. But with the passage of time, engineers and workers realized that the variations in the sizes of the parts have always been present and that such variations could be restricted but not avoided. Any attempt towards very closed dimensions of a product will increase cost of the production. The functional aspects of the component may be achieved even without going for its exact dimensions using limits, fit and tolerances. This e-learning module emphasises on the following topics: Interchangeability Size of components Various types of fit Fundamentals deviation and grade of tolerance Study of tolerances chart.
