Date: 2012-12-11 00:00 - 2012-12-12 00:00

Venue: CRE Training Room

Oil Analysis Offers Far Superior Early Warning Signals Than Other Maintenance Tools - Even Vibration Analysis

You Will Learn How To:

Easily interpret oil analysis reports

Squeeze maximum life from lubricants

Pull oil samples for optimum results

Reduce oil consumption for quick savings

The Course:

1.Fast paced technical survey designed to provide a technical intro to the field of oil analysis

2.The course covers lube fundamentals and the roles of oil analysis in machinery reliability

3.It covers oil sampling practices and the tests commonly used to evaluate the lubricant's condition, monitoring common contaminants and detect abnormal machine wear in more detail.

4.Brief intro to field tests and inspections

5.Ideal for managers and craftsmen who aren't directly involved with oil analysis for machine condition monitoring but who require more than just a cursory understanding of the field

6.Intro for someone who will be directly involved with oil analysis and wants to become familiar with the general concepts and terminology before undertaking more thorough training
