Why Choose this Training Course?

This PetroKnowledge complete course on “Tribology: Friction, Wear and Lubrication” provides fundamental and advanced knowledge into this important topic. Tribology is the technology of friction, wear and lubrication and it has very important role on all equipment used in industry. Mitigating thermal stresses, washing out equipment wear debris and dirt, protection against friction, wear and corrosion are amongst main functions of lubrication. However, to ensure meeting those functions, most suitable lubricants must be chosen and correct procedures for testing and assessing their characteristics shall be adopted.

This PetroKnowledge training course will feature:

  • Appreciation of materials behavior and fundamental properties
  • Comprehensive and cost-effective understanding of maintenance engineering
  • Theoretical knowledge of friction, wear and lubrication in an industrial context
  • Oil lubricants properties and performance evaluation
  • Practical skills in choosing and implementing most suitable lubrication systems

What are the Goals?

By the end of this PetroKnowledge training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand equipment failures and maintenance strategies
  • Evaluate current status of their process plant equipment
  • Choose the right lubricants for their equipment
  • Implement cost effective condition monitoring program
  • Outline and adopt best practices for mitigating equipment failures
