Course Line-up  at STLE 2011 Annual Meeting

SUNDAY MAY 15th 

Basic Lubrication 101
Sunday May 15, 2011
Basic Lubrication 101 is an introduction to lubricants, lubrication principles, base oils, additives and compounded fluids.This course does not require the student to have a formal scientific degree or background, although many technical terms and concepts related to lubricants and their composition are covered. Basic Lubrication 101 is intended for a diverse group, including people involved in technical service, sales, marketing,manufacturing,maintenance and management who want to know more about lubricant products and how they work.The course is designed specifically for those new to the lubrication industry.

Biofuels and Lubes
Sunday May 15, 2011
An introductory course on Environmentally Friendly Fuels and Lubricants.
This course will be an overview of current progress on the use of biofuels and biolubricants.  The course elements will include an introduction to energy and alternative sources, some basic chemistry of vegetable oils, general performance requirements, overviews of market progress, nitch markets and governmental and regulatory drivers.  Information on European, U.S. and OEM views will be included.  The course will primarily focus on lubricants but will include a general overview of alternative transportation fuels.  Biodiesel feedstocks, production and quality issues will be covered.   An outstanding list of speakers with first-hand knowledge of the above areas will teach the course.

Condition Monitoring - Hot Topics
Sunday May 15, 2011
This one-day course is designed for those who are or may be routinely involved in Condition Monitoring and is targeted to Intermediate experience levels.
The course begins with justification for Condition Monitoring (CM), including historically established maintenance strategies, providing understanding of the differences and benefits of each. The course continues with an overview of the steps to implement and properly execute an oil analysis program, including program setup, sampling considerations and maintenance follow-up. The afternoon session begins with a review of standard oil analysis tests, their efficacy, and the evaluation of test data for practical, effective maintenance decisions. The course then transitions to lubricant and machinery failures & indicators, closing with data management and integration.  Annual Meeting Registration is required to take this course
.

Hydraulics
Sunday May 15, 2011
This one day course provides an overview of principles of lubrication, fluid power transmission and hydraulic fluid property and performance requirements. In particular, the course will discuss the composition of industrial hydraulic fluids and the property and performance comparison of hydraulic fluids based on different base stocks.
Requirements for specialized hydraulic fluids including fire-resistant and environmentally acceptable fluids will be reviewed as well as current trends in the hydraulics industry. The objective of this course is to provide to the participants a working knowledge of hydraulics, the types of hydraulic fluids used in industry and the reasons why specific fluids are used for certain applications.  Annual Meeting Registration is required to take this course

Synthetics Lubricants Course 203
Sunday May 15, 2011
The Synthetic Fluids course 203 is designed primarily for formulators and users of lubricating materials.  This course provides an overview of non-petroleum based lubricants, their comparison to each other and to petroleum oil.  Each section covers the chemistry, strength and weaknesses of each material and basic application
Annual Meeting Registration is required to take this course

 


 

WEDNESDAY MAY 18th

Advance Lubrication Course 301
Wednesday May 18, 2011
This is a focused, higher-level course on tribology, lubricants and lubricant formulation. Experienced professionals, including those who have completed STLE’s Basic Lubrication course, will benefit from this more focused and advanced session on lubricant technology.  This course assumes fundamental knowledge of lubricants and lubrication principles or completion of Basic Lubrication 101-102. Advanced Lubrication 301 targets individuals employed by oil and additive companies, experienced lubricant end-users and other technical professionals interested in expanding their basic lubrication knowledge.  Key concepts taught in this course include:
•Wear
•Wear mechanisms
• How to diagnose wear problems from equipment failure
• Types of additives used in lubricants, the mechanism of how they work
• Oil rheology and lubricant viscosity theory
• Low-temperature properties of lubricants
• Viscosity Index Improvers
• Low- and high-shear rate properties of lubricants and how these properties are measured.
Annual Meeting Registration is required to take this course


Basic Lubrication 102
Wednesday May 18, 2011
Annual Meeting Registration is required to take this course</B><br> Basic Lubrication 102 is an overview of equipment systems (gears, bearings, pumps, compressors, etc.) and their lubrication requirements.This course, like Basic Lubrication 101, does not require the student to have a formal scientific degree or background, although many technical terms and concepts related to the use of lubricants in various mechanical devices are covered. <br>Basic Lubrication 102 is intended for a diverse group, including people involved in technical service, sales,marketing,manufacturing, maintenance and management who want to know more about how lubricants work in service.This course assumes fundamental knowledge of lubricants and lubrication principles, as presented in Basic Lubrication 101.Annual Meeting Registration is required to take this course

Basic Grease Course (NLGI)
Wednesday May 18, 2011
Basic Grease (NLGI) - Meeting Registration not included
This special course is offered in collaboration with NLGI; Thus, there is a separate registration fee policy. The course is a basic, but comprehensive,  overview of all aspects of lubricating grease. The basics of grease formulation components are covered, including base oils, the many different thickener types and grease performance additives. Manufacturing technologies are reviewed, as well as grease testing significance and methods. Included is a discussion detailing how to select the proper grease for an application, and a variety of examples of both industrial and automotive applications are discussed.  Annual Meeting Registration not required to take this course and is not included in this price

Metalworking - Hot Topics
Wednesday May 18, 2011
This course highlights many of the main issues facing the metalworking fluid industry today. One of the key issues is the newly developed regulation on VOC that has been established by the South Coast Air Quality Management District in California. The implications of this regulation and details describing the development of a new test TGA test method are covered. Other hot topics include a review of chemical additives such as chlorinated paraffins, reregistration of biocides and microbiology, implications of the global harmonized standard and TSCA reform, interpretation of HMIS, a health & safety review focused on regulatory limits for metal removal mist and an update on high performance machining. This course is designed both for individuals with vast metalworking fluid experience and newcomers to the industry. A good deal of time will also be alloted for questions and discussion after each module and at the end of the course.   Annual Meeting Registration is required to take this course

Synthetic Lubricants 204
Wednesday May 18, 2011
The objective of the Synthetic Fluids course 204 is to give the participants a working knowledge of the various types of synthetic lubricants and their uses in a wide variety of applications. Annual Meeting Registration is required to take this course
