Basic Lubrication 101 is primarily for the person entering the lubrication field who needs a broad introduction to the field of lubrication, lubrication principles and lubricating materials. This course is also for individuals not directly involved but who need a broad overview of lubricants and basic lubricating components. This course does not require a formal scientific degree or background, although many technical terms and concepts are covered. Experienced people attend the course to be kept up to date on the latest developments, especially in those areas not directly related to their job function or area of expertise. Thus, Basic Lubrication 101 is usually attended by a broad cross section of people such as technical, technical service, sales, marketing, manufacturing, maintenance and managers who in some way are involved in the industry.

Gears 101 is designed to provide a general understanding of industrial gearing. This course will serve as a guide to establish not only a basic knowledge of gears and their supporting components but also their lubrication. In this course, attendees will learn about gear functions and types, basic gear terminology, the different types of industrial gear lubricants, the factors that affect gear lubrication, industrial gear lubricant requirements and their proper selection, open gear lubrication, gear wear modes and failure analysis, and condition monitoring.
Time
8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

This new course is offered in response to the many requests from attendees at STLE's other MWF courses who asked for more specifics on formulation. The course begins with some universal formulating basics, such as experimental design, order of additions for ingredients, and considerations when scaling up from beakers to large blending tanks. Also covered will be base stocks, performance additives, emulsifier selection, HLB, qualification tests, optimization for stability, both in the drum and in use, bioresistance, microbicide selection and use, and recalcitrant functional additives. Finally, instructors will discuss formulating for disposability and for global distribution. While several example formulations will be presented, this course will not be providing specific ready-to-use commercial formulations.

This course is a comprehensive overview of all aspects of lubricating grease. Grease formulation components are thoroughly covered, including base oils and the many different thickener types. Manufacturing technologies are reviewed, as well as grease testing significance and methods. Included is a good discussion detailing how to select the proper grease for different applications, and a variety of examples of both industrial and automotive applications are discussed.

This course provides an introduction to synthetic lubricant base stocks and applications. It compares the use of these synthetic lubricants to petroleum-based products and compares between types of synthetic lubricants. Synthetic Lubricants 204 is a continuation from the Synthetic Lubricants 203: Non-Petroleum Fluids and Their Uses course, however, attendance of the Synthetic Lubricants 203 course is not a prerequisite.

Basic Lubrication 102 is an overview of equipment systems (gears, bearings, seals, compressors and engines) and their lubrication requirements, including a module on grease. Like Basic Lubrication 101, this course does not require a formal scientific degree or background, although many technical terms and concepts related to the use of lubricants in various mechanical devices are covered. This course is intended for a diverse group, including people involved in technical service, sales, marketing, manufacturing, maintenance and managers who want to know more about how lubricants work in service. This course assumes fundamental knowledge of lubricants and lubrication principles, as presented in the Basic Lubrication 101 course.

Metalworking Fluids 105 is designed for those involved in developing, working with and using metal forming fluids in the manufacturing environment. This course is very useful for formulators, technical service representatives, shop floor personnel and coolant service managers who need to know more about the fundamental concepts of metal forming fluids. This course is divided into modules covering metal forming operations, metal forming fluid chemistry, metal forming fluid failure mechanisms, controlling contamination and microbial growth, waste treatment and operator acceptance. By the end of the course, participants will have gained a good understanding of metal forming operations, formulation of metal forming fluids, tools for identifying and correcting metal forming fluid failures and waste treatment of metal forming fluids.
