Predictive and Preventive Maintenance of Lubricated Machinery
Properly maintaining lubricated machinery to maximize equipment life and minimize down-time is increasingly important. This one-day seminar will provide practical information to help participants establish or improve a program for maintaining lubricated equipment. The following topics will be presented by industry experts:
• Ultrasonics for detection of leaks, damaged bearings, etc.
• IR Thermography to detect misalignment and mechanical or electrical overloading
• Vibration Analysis for detection of imbalance, gear defects, etc.
• Lubricant monitoring and analysis
• Root cause failure analysis
• Justifying a predictive/preventive maintenance program
• Question and answer session to address specific concerns
The fees for this course are $200 for STLE members and $250 for non-members, including lunch, continental breakfast and a flash drive with presentations. Attendees can register separately for the STLE Chicago Section monthly technical meeting, immediately following the seminar. This meeting features dinner and a presentation "Lubricant Additives; a Formulator's Toolbox" by STLE president Robert Heverly of Vanderbilt Chemicals.
