Lubrication Technology

Code : M/8

Why Attend This Training Course?

Participants gain much more than pointers on lubricating a machine – they learn proven industry methods for selecting, storing, filtering and testing lubricants to boost reliability and generate lasting results in machine efficiency/maintenance. They also gain better understanding of oil analysis, so they can align their efforts with those of maintenance professionals or oil analysis experts. This interactive course covers best practice solutions to ensure your plant achieves world class levels in lubrication.  Attendees will be encouraged to participate with questions and discussion. Worked examples and case studies will be a key part in this training.

What Is The Training Course Methodology?

This training methodology illustrates the concepts involved in the above areas through practical consideration of actual real-life problems, as well as explanation of concepts by experts in area using video projectors and computer aided case studies based on practical applications. Participants will solve their system problem, where the trainee’s try to apply the skills learnt with guidance from our specialized experts. ACAD will provide participants a comprehensive assessment on the problems solved using the skills acquired in the training course.

Who Should Attend This Training Course?

This course is directed to maintenance and operation engineers, supervisors and senior technicians. It will also be of benefit to laboratory chemists responsible for testing and evaluation of new oils proposed for use and giving advice on the suitability of used oil for continuous performance without change.
