SDT is offering a free 1 day Acoustic Lubrication Workshop in Vancouver
PEMAC is happy to share news of this upcoming event offered by one our Allied Members, SDT:
Date: Monday, May 28, 2018
Time: 8:00 AM – 4:00 PM PDT
From the SDT Website:
We’ve been using lubrication to fight friction for more than 4000 years. One would think by now we would be better at it. Yet statistics published by the world’s leading bearing manufacturers – companies like SKF and FAG – suggest that less than 5% of bearings reach their engineered L10 lifecycle. Furthermore, they report that as much as 80% of bearing failures are directly attributable to poor lubrication practices.
Bearing failures result in costly downtime and missed production targets. With so much at stake, one wonders how the simple task of injecting grease into a bearing could go so horribly wrong.
This workshop is designed to help organizations right the wrongs by optimizing asset lubrication. We talk about grease; what it is, how it works, and the very best way to apply it. Our aim is to give clarity to grease composition, and the different phases of lubrication.
The merits of on-condition lubrication are discussed and contrasted with calendar-based replenishment scheduling. Everything is tied together with an explanation of the recent advances in acoustic lubrication.
