Bearing Lubrication and Analysis

About The Course

At the end of this programme, the participants are expected to:
• Better understanding of bearing and lubrication system and enable to modify lubrication supply system and construction to avoid repeating failures
• The participants will be able to shorten trouble shooting or repair time after having strong technical knowledge in approaching the systematic root cause analysis of bearing and lubrication system
• Capable and skillful to select types of bearing and lubricant fit to the operating condition

Design for

Mechanical Engineer /Supervisor/Superintendent, Maintenance Engineer/Supervisor/Superintendent, Rotating & Reliability Engineer /Supervisor/Superintendent, Professional who are in charge in lubrication and bearing systems, Everybody or professional who wants to broaden knowledge or gain benefits from this course.
