About this Course

From temperatures of over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit to speeds in the tens of thousands of revolutions per minute, the moving parts of industrial machinery experience colossal amounts of stress as part of their everyday operation.

One of the main factors that allows equipment to operate under such extreme circumstances is the lubrication used to reduce friction between moving surfaces.

Understanding the types, selection, and care of the lubrication found in an industrial facility is vital knowledge for operators and technicians.

  • Explain the purpose of lubricants used for machinery
  • Describe the types of lubricants used in machinery

  • Explain the effects of using improper lubricants on operating machinery
