The course is designed for participants to understand the functions of bearings in relation to rotating equipment, its installation, its performance and to know the major signals/symptoms of bearing failure. A basic understanding of the principles and practices of predictive maintenance is also covered. 


Course Objectives: 

  • Know how lubrication affects machine reliability and determine the financial benefits as well as the important implementation steps to achieving lubrication excellence 

  • Become familiar with the staffing, training and culture of the lubrication workforce & describe the composition of lubricants, crude oil derived lubricants and synthetic lubricants for tribology 

  • Enumerate the types of lubrication, characteristics of the lubricants under different operating conditions and various lubricant properties 

  • Recognize the need for internal combustion lubricants for petrol and diesel engines & identify the viscosity classifications for automotive driveline lubrication 

  • Learn the importance of hydraulic systems and fluids as well as employ miscellaneous lubrication of steam turbine pumps, motors and air compressors 

  • Develop an understanding on the use of lubrication systems and exercise cleanliness control in the filtration of lubricants 

  • Illustrate the various monitoring techniques, vibration and oil analysis for the assessment of the condition of rotating machinery 

  • Determine the tribology root causes of failures and apply fluid contamination control & leakage, fluid chemical, temperature and wear stability 

  • Heighten awareness on safety issues, shelf life and contamination potential in the storage of lubricants
