Lubrication for Engineers course content
This course is intended for both new and experienced site and operational engineers who are tasked with fixing breakdowns, servicing equipment and identifying failures.
Following completion of the course the delegates will be able to identify the most suitable lubricants for their particular interest and understand how to recognise common failure modes, helping them choose the correct lubricant for each application and not be guided by aggressive advertising and persuasive salesmen.
This course is designed for site engineers/technicians/craftsmen to allow them to understand lubrication fundamentals, lubricants composition (and additives) and future technological developments in the lubrication field.
The course is also aimed at engineers specifying and ordering new equipment and machines as it will allow them to question the supplier on his lubricant choice and reasons for that choice.
- Introduction to Tribology
- The relationship between friction, wear and lubrication.
- Physical properties
- Lubrication regimes
- Types of lubricant
- Base oils
- Lubricant product data sheets
- Physical tests
- Chemical tests
- Mechanical tests
- Failure analysis

“I really enjoyed the course, I thought it was well put together and delivered well. I don’t have a lot of tribology knowledge, but I thought Marc adapted his explanations well to make them accessible to all levels”
