About the Class

Selection of lubricants for critical equipment: Module 3

What challenges are you facing?

Are you facing challenges like:

  • Frequent equipment downtime
  • Equipment failure
  • Improper lubrication practices
  • Increased maintenance budget
  • Poor maintenance culture

What will you learn in this course?

You have come to the right place. Our training exposes professionals, whether at entry or higher levels, to theory and practical knowledge thereby improving their engineering skills. This course trains team members and adds value by educating and building confidence. It helps them understand what to focus on reliability and cost reduction.

The students can move away from the "old school" methods of vague, non-specific lubrication procedures and implement an excellent lubrication program in any industrial workplace.

Who should take this course?

This training is designed to provide lubrication analysts, condition monitoring experts, and predictive maintenance specialists with a greater understanding of fundamental concepts of lubrication.

Anyone seeking lubrication excellence at the workplace should attend these training programs. Lubrication activities are a key component in reliability activities as proper lubrication leads to longer machine life as well as reduces downtime. Lubrication Institute highlights ways to create a proper lubrication program for your facility which is an important aspect of proactive maintenance.

This course is not for USA, Canada, and European audiences/students.

Course content:

In this training we will be reviewing in detail the following topics on lubricant selection:

Lubricant Selection

  • Recognize the machine and operating conditions that are considered for viscosity and base oil selection
  • Understand how lubricant properties: viscosity and additive systems influence lubricant selection considerations for the following:
  • Rolling-element bearings
  • Electric motors
  • Journal bearings
  • Steam and gas turbines
  • Compressors
  • Gears
  • Automotive and mobile equipment
  • Hydraulic systems
  • Food grade and environmentally acceptable lubricants

Rolling-element bearings:

  • Recognize the machine and operating conditions that are considered for viscosity and base oil selection for rolling-element bearings
  • Calculate the minimum viscosity for bearings
  • Use speed factors to decide when to use oil or grease
  • Recognize how to convert required operating temperature viscosity to ISO viscosity grades

Electric Motor:

  • List the recommended greases for electric motor lubrication
  • What are the consequences of excessive greasing?
  • List the causes of hot-running electric motors.
  • Explain key items that need to be communicated to the motor rebuild shop
  • Describe the impact of heat on electric motors

Journal bearings:

  • Describe the machine and operating conditions which influence viscosity and base oil selection for journal bearings
  • What are some journal-bearing lubrication problems?
  • List the parameters to determine the viscosity for a journal bearing.

Hydraulic System:

  • Describe the machine and operating conditions which influence viscosity and base oil selection for the hydraulic system
  • List the requirements for hydraulic fluids
  • When would you select a synthetic lubricant over a mineral oil for a hydraulic system?
  • What are the characteristics of fire-resistant fluids?

Steam and Gas Turbines

  • Describe the machine and operating conditions which influence viscosity and base oil selection for turbines
  • What is a result of mixing incompatible lubricants?
  • When can lubricants get mixed?
  • What factors must be considered when selecting a turbine oil?

Compressors

  • Explain how compressed gases impact lubricant considerations
  • Describe compressor lubricant stressors and what characteristics the lubricant has to defend against them.
  • Identify the synthetics commonly used in compressors and their pros and cons.

Gears:

  • Identify gear classifications and lubricant requirements.
  • Describe the unique friction challenges presented by gear design and the affected lubrication requirements
  • Describe the steps for selecting lubricant viscosity for gear oils
  • Describe the differences in lubricant requirements for open and enclosed gear configurations
  • Describe the conditions where a synthetic base oil may be required.

Automotive and Mobile Equipment Drive-Line

  • List the factors that lead to abnormal engine wear
  • Explain the API engine oil service classifications
  • Explain the API automotive gear oil service designations and the NLGI automotive grease classifications
  • List the functions of an automatic transmission fluid
  • Describe the cause, impacts, and solutions for dry engine starts and cold engine starts
  • List the benefits of diesel engine pre lube system

Food grade and environmentally acceptable lubricants

  • List the characteristics of food-grade lubricants
  • Explain the food-grade lubricant regulation
  • List the NSF food-grade lubricant classifications

Benefits:

  • Skilled workers
  • Increased equipment uptime and availability
  • Best practices for lubrication management
  • Maintenance culture change
  • Identify the three considerations addressed by environmentally acceptable lubricants

Results:

  • The results of these training impact key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • The best practices, various methodology, case studies, etc discussed in this training will allow you to build a solid foundation for world-class lubrication if they are practiced and implemented by you.
