Course Contents: Lubrication Fundamentals for Maintenance Engineers / Supervisors

This training program duration one day including one test.


This program is excellent for training maintenance executives and engineers from process and manufacturing industries and facilities. This lesson is designed so that no prior knowledge is required. However, a knowledge of applied mathematics is recommended.

This comprehensive interactive multimedia training program, consisting of two sessions , trains participants to recognize various types of lubrication systems and their maintenance requirements, bearings lubrications , properties including ring, bath, splash, constant level, and forced feed lubrication systems, as well as understand how they operate. Participants also learn the importance of following lubrication schedules, how to change common types of oil filters, and how to properly handle and store lubricants to prevent lubricant contamination.

This lesson explains the concepts of lubrication, friction, and viscosity and demonstrates the benefits of a proper lubrication program. Additionally, the properties of common solid, semi-solid, and liquid lubricants are described, as well as the benefits associated with synthetic lubricants and the functions of additives and inhibitors. Common types and causes of lubricant contamination are described and proper methods of lubricant storage are demonstrated.

After attending the training programs the participants will be able to:
