Demystifying the Diagnosis of Bearing Detection

Jason Tranter, Founder and CEO, Mobius Institute


As a vibration analyst, your ability to detect the early signs of rolling element bearing defects and track them as the fault progresses is key to your success. Unexpected failures should never happen, and late warnings will not be appreciated by the maintenance or production departments. In this highly animated (virtual) presentation, the author of Mobius Institute’s vibration training will use all of our 3D animations and simulations to make it crystal clear how the vibration will change as faults develop, and what you must do to ensure that you detect and accurately report on the health of the bearing.


Jason Tranter is the founder and CEO of Mobius Institute. Jason is the author of the majority of the Mobius Institute training courses and e-learning products covering reliability improvement, condition monitoring, and precision maintenance topics. Over 35,000 people (as of 2020) have been formally trained in these courses, and many thousands more have been educated via the elearning courses. Plus, thousands have read articles, attended conference presentations, and watched videos and webinars on many sites, including,, and YouTube (over 1.3 million views).

Mr. Tranter has worked with people in a variety of industries to help improve reliability and implement successful condition monitoring programs. As the primary author of the Asset Reliability Practitioner [ARP] training courses, the Asset Reliability Transformation [ART] methodology, and the vibration analysis training course (Category I-IV following 18436-2) he loves to help people achieve their goals. Jason is also an Australian delegate to ISO TC 108/SC5 “Condition monitoring and diagnostics of machine systems”.
