The best way to prevent problems and mistakes is through proper training. Our experts can guide your team through the process of collecting and interpreting oil samples as well as how to handle and store lubricants. Some of our training programs are listed below:

Core Training Topics

  • Filtration
  • Oil Sampling and Analysis
  • Storage and Handling
  • Lubricant Selection
  • Lubricant Application
  • Lubricant Fundamentals
  • Lubricant Additives and their function

On-Site Lubrication Training

Your team will learn the importance of proper lubrication and how it affects the health of your equipment. This training is available on-site and we’ll walk your team through the specific needs of your machinery, including the following:

  • The differences in lubricant types
  • How to safely handle lubricants
  • How to check lubricants in machinery
  • How to know when it should be replaced
  • How to properly dispose of lubricants

Additional topics covered include the following:

  • Why and when to use wire mesh, cellulose, and fiberglass filters
  • How to interpret filter ratings and why the Beta Rating is the most reliable
  • How filter assemblies are constructed and operate
  • Types of common contaminants
  • How component clearances relate to contaminant particle sizes
  • How to measure fluid contamination

Certified Lubricant Specialists

This certification covers proper techniques and best practices for machine lubrication. It includes the basics from our On-Site Lubrication Training, but also adds the following:

  • How to conduct and interpret oil analyses
  • Predicting oil life
  • Measuring contaminants
  • How to identify varnish
  • Procedures for eliminating moisture
  • Monitoring debris

Equipment Training

The next step beyond taking samples and diagnosing problems is to correct them. This process requires a variety of machinery and tools your team will need to learn how to use. Some of the skills they’ll develop are listed below:

  • How to operate a filter cart
  • Types of bypass filters and how to add connect them to equipment
  • When and how to use a vacuum dehydrator
  • How to implement a turbine flush
  • Varnish mitigation

Our training will help your team better maintain your equipment and correct problems before they cause expensive shutdowns. Your facility will also see increased uptime, fewer accidents, and fewer unplanned maintenance projects.
