MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- Flo Components has announced the dates for its 2013-2014 Lube Basics seminar series.
The tour will visit London, Mississauga, Ottawa and Sudbury. Flo Components says a survey conducted by a major component manufacturer found that improper lubrication accounts for 53% of all bearing failures, which leads to equipment downtime.
Flo is hoping to help educate the industry to reduce such incidences.
“Flo Lube Basics Seminars are designed to help you avoid common lubrication failures by turning your personnel into lubrication specialists,” said Gabriel Lopez, marketing specialist for Flo Components. “Each one-day seminar will have a balance of theory and practical - 50% of the time will be your traditional in-class training, 50% will be more hands-on training. These seminars are designed and presented as an unbiased, third-party, vendor-neutral lubrication training program. We don’t bring people there to sell them on our products, we teach them what they need to know about dealing with everyday lubrication issues, so when they apply what they learn, their payoff is immediate and permanent.”
Topics covered include: basic principles of friction/wear, lubricants and lubricant types; grease properties/compatibility/applications; introduction to manual lubrication; lubricant handling/transfer and storage procedures; and general automatic lube system operation, inspection and troubleshooting procedures.
