FLO Components’ Lube Basics Seminars Coming to ON

MISSISSAUGA — Automatic Greasing Systems specialist FLO Components has launched a series of seminars of the ins and outs of lubricants. The “Lube Basics” seminars are scheduled in 2014 and 2015 in Kitchener, Mississauga, Sudbury and Thunder Bay.

Some studies found that improper lubrication accounts for 53 percent of all bearing failures, a major cause of equipment downtime and significant unnecessary maintenance costs. 

Gabriel Lopez, FLO’s marketing specialist, commented: “FLO Lube Basics Seminars are designed to help you avoid common lubrication failures by turning your personnel into lubrication specialists.”

The one-day seminars are split 50-50 between theoretical in-class training and practical, 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,” Lopez said.

Here are some of the seminar topics:

  • Basic principles of friction/wear, lubricants and lubricant types;
  • Grease properties/compatibility/srv/bindings/b2c45723e430478690496ed66cd46cfb/codelications;
  • Introduction to manual lubrication (fittings, calibrating grease guns, etc.);
  • Lubricant handling/transfer and storage procedures;
  • General Automatic Lube System operation, inspection and trouble-shooting procedures.
