Industrial Lubrication LibraryIn Mechanical
Consisting of two (2) lessons, this curriculum trains participants to recognize various types of lubrication systems.
PrerequisitesThis curriculum is designed so that no prior knowledge is required. However, a knowledge of applied mathematics is recommended.
DescriptionThis comprehensive interactive multimedia-training program, consisting of two lessons, trains participants to recognize various types of lubrication systems and their maintenance requirements, including ring, bath, splash, constant level, and forced feed lubrication systems, as well as understand how they operate. Participants also learn the importance of following lubrication schedules, how to change common types of oil filters, and how to properly handle and store lubricants to prevent lubricant contamination.
ObjectivesThis program is excellent for training oilers, mechanics, and mill wrights as well as for the multi-craft needs of process and manufacturing facilities.
This lesson explains the concepts of lubrication, friction, and
viscosity and demonstrates the benefits of a proper lubrication program.
Additionally, the properties of common solid, semi-solid, and liquid
lubricants are described as well as the benefits associated with
synthetic lubricants and the functions of additives and inhibitors.
Common types and causes of lubricant contamination are described and
proper methods of lubricant storage are demonstrated.
- Fundamentals of Lubrication
This lesson explains and demonstrates how various types of lubrication
systems operate, including ring, bath, splash, constant level and forced
feed lubrication systems. Participants learn pertinent maintenance
checks to make for each type of system. Manual devices used to apply
lubricant are covered as well as the purpose of filters and the
importance of filter maintenance in lubrication systems. Additionally,
the lesson indicates the benefits of oil sampling and analysis and
identifies several factors that can cause lubrication failure.
