Level
Discovery
Audience
  • Engineers and technical staff, beginners in the field of lubricants, wishing to get an overview on automotive and industrial lubricants.
Purpose
  • To provide an overview of the various equipment currently lubricated: internal combustion engines, automotive transmissions, industrial equipment (hydraulic pumps, gears, compressors, turbines, antifriction bearings, machine tools).
  • To give the necessary elements to understand how the lubricants operate in the various equipment.
  • To give the functional properties of the lubricants for each type of equipment, their classifications and specifications.
Learning Objectives
  • To understand the technology of the automotive and industrial equipment currently used.
  • To understand the various lubricants applied in the equipment in terms of functional properties, classifications and specifications.
  • To know how to recommend a lubricant for a given application.
Prerequisite
  • To maximize the benefit of this training course, it is strongly recommended to initially follow the training course entitled “Lubrication and Lubricants”.
Ways and means
