During this hands-on intensive 2 days you will:

•    Learn why and how to implement a practical 7-step best practice lubrication management program at your facilities for minimum capital outlay

•    Explore practical models in assessing your current state of lubrication management

•    Obtain the knowledge to apply matrix tools and procedures in consolidating your lubricants

•    Learn what procedures, methods, and tactics to use to minimize rotating equipment contamination risk

•    Gain detailed insight on storing and handling lubricants

•    Learn how to calculate a bearing surface area: How much lubricant and how often?

•    Develop a rudimentary oil analysis program as an integral part of the PM program

•    Receive a certificate of training that can be used as proof of training and applied to any professional certification or designation program. This proof of training can also be used to meet the training requirement necessary to apply to take the ICML (International Council of Machinery Lubrication) Machinery Lubrication Technician – MLT Level I certification exam.

•    Receive a course manual, along with numerous program implementation tools, and a copy of Ken Bannister’s best-selling “Lubrication for Industry” technical book.

•    Receive a questionnaire to indicate what issue you would like to see addressed during the workshop

Never before in the history of industry has it been more crucial to increase efficiency, cut costs and reduce our environmental impact! Best practice operations have long understood that a well-managed lubrication program is a vital cornerstone of any efficient and profitable operation, so why is it so often overlooked? The three most compelling reasons for implementing a practical lubrication management program are

1) increased asset life cycle, reliability and availability

2) reduced energy costs

3) a corresponding reduction in your facility’s carbon footprint.

Many maintenance departments believe a grease gun constitutes a lubrication program and subscribe to the old adage that oil is oil, grease is grease and any lubricant will do, or the more the better! Many lubrication PM’s simply state “lubricate as necessary” – sound familiar? With ineffective lubrication practices like these responsible for up to 70% of all mechanical failures, excessive energy use and an increased carbon footprint, can you afford to ignore this most basic of preventive maintenance strategies?

You will definitely want to attend this interactive 2days platform to learn why and how to implement a practical 7-step best practice lubrication management program at your facilities for minimum capital outlay.
