Course Description

Machinery Lubrication I (MLI) provides the foundational skillset for applying best lubrication practices and product knowledge. Through MLI, students can move away from the “old school” methods of vague, non-specific lubrication procedures and implement an excellent lubrication program in any industrial workplace.

MLI students gain much more than pointers on lubricating a machine – they learn proven industry methods for selecting, storing, filtering and testing lubricants to boost reliability and generate lasting results in machine efficiency/maintenance. They also gain better understanding of oil analysis, so they can align their efforts with those of maintenance professionals or oil analysis experts.

The Four Rs Of Lubrication

Right lubricant, right time, right quantity and right place. If these four basic elements aren’t properly addressed, you could be doing your equipment more harm than good. Learn the newest methods for implementing the best lubrication practices.

Grease Gun Or Lethal Weapon?

In the hands of an untrained operator, a grease gun can deliver pressure up to 15,000 psi. That’s 30 times what a typical bearing seal can handle. Once the bearing seal is broken, the bearing is on its way to early failure. This course will teach you proper grease gun practices.
