Whenever machine parts that are in contact move with a relative motion, friction sets in and depending on a number of factors, wear and tear come in. If necessary actions are not taken, this could lead to partial or total breakdown of equipment or a plant. This training is developed to help participants acquire industry methods for selecting, storing, filtering and testing lubricants to boost reliability and generate lasting results in machine efficiency/maintenance. Also, they will gain better understanding of oil analysis, so they can align their efforts with those of maintenance professionals or oil analysis experts.
At the end of the course, participants will be able to
- Explain the meaning of lubrication
- Discuss the need for equipment lubrication
- Explain the mode of action of the lubricants and the properties required for a given application.
- Learn how to recommend a lubricant according the equipment and its operating conditions.
- To detect the origin of the equipment failures.
- To learn how to analyze lubricants in use.
- List types of lubricant
- Discuss the functions of lubricants
- List methods of lubrication
- Apply lubricants
Intensive and interactive lectures complemented by hands-on exercises using relevant training equipment and aids.
