How do you know if you’re using the right lubricant? You might be using a high-quality lubricant, putting a lot of effort and money into selecting the best quality, but it may not be right for your application. Differing widely in viscosity, lubricity, toxicity, biodegradability, oxidation stability, boiling point, and other properties, lubricants offer a wide range of selection for the increasingly varied needs of modern industry. Don’t confuse the quality of the lubricant with the quality of the specification. In this course, the reader will learn the basic applications and specifications typically used in lubricant selection.
This 2-hr course material is based entirely on the US Army Corps of Engineers document EM 1110-2-1424, "Lubricants and Hydraulic Fluids" and covers Chapter 11; "Lubrication Applications”, Chapter 13: “ Lubricant Specification & Selection” and Chapter 8, "Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants".
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
