ABOUT THE COURSE

This course covers real-world bearing lubrication in a dynamic, skills-based learning approach . Upon course comple- tion, students will have learned the skills needed to choose, apply and maintain lubricants, and lubricating procedures in bearing applications plant wide .

Case histories will be used to demon- strate concepts and stimulate discussion . Students will be guided through examples, then apply the concepts to arrive at practical solutions to their own in-plant situations . 

PROGRAM CONTENT


LUBRICATION FUNDAMENTALS

• Functions of lubrication
• Basic expressions
• Lubricant additives and their effects
• Avoiding surface damage in bearings


GREASE LUBRICATION
• Grease functions and properties

• Grease delivery and metering systems
• Selection of grease type: choosing the

right grade, base, stiffness, and oil for your application

• Compute grease intervals and relubrication amounts for a variety of application conditions, such as contamination, high or low temperatures, and vibration 



OIL LUBRICATION
• Choosing the right lubricant: oil and grease quality standards and testing

• Effects of cleanliness and contamination • Using the new life theory to predict the effects of contamination on bearings

• Effects of water ingress
• Effective use of filtration and choosing

the right filter
• Change-out intervals
• Bearing housing design concepts
• Comparison of oil delivery methods:

static, wick-feed, lifting rings, circulating

oil, mist, air-oil, oil spot

• Determining oil flow rates 

APPLYING LUBRICANTS

• Determining lubrication quantities and intervals

• Hands-on lubrication and relubrication procedures for pillow blocks, ball bear- ings, roller bearings, sealed and shielded bearings

• Electric motor relubrication



COMMON ERRORS/TROUBLESHOOTING

• Over-greasing, under-greasing, and mixing greases

• Corrective actions

OTHER

• Standstill precautions, storing spare bearings, and shelf life considerations
