Sixth year of series of seminars on Lube Basics is launched
Mississauga, ON – Automatic greasing systems specialist FLO Components Ltd. has announced the 2015-2016 schedule for its Lube Basics seminars. Scheduled cities will include Kitchener, Mississauga, Timmins and Thunder Bay, all in Ontario.
In a study conducted by a major component manufacturer, improper lubrication accounts for 53% of all bearing failures, was a major cause of equipment downtime and caused significant unnecessary maintenance costs. According to FLO’s marketing specialist, Gabriel Lopez, “FLO Lube Basics Seminars are designed to help you avoid common lubrication failures by turning your personnel into lubrication specialists.
“Each one-day seminar will have a balance of theory and practical — 50% of the time will be traditional in-class training, 50% will be more hands-on training. These seminars are designed and presented as an unbiased, third-party, vendor-neutral lubrication training program; we don’t bring people in to sell them on our products, we teach them what they need to know about dealing with every-day lubrication issues, so when they apply what they learn, their payoff is immediate and permanent.”
Some of the topics to be covered in the seminars include:
- Basic principles of friction/wear, lubricants and lubricant types
- Grease properties/compatibility/applications
- Introduction to manual lubrication (fittings, calibrating grease guns, etc.)
- Lubricant handling/transfer and storage procedures
- General Automatic Lube System operation, inspection and trouble-shooting procedures
