Lubricant Failure Troubleshooting and Root Cause Analysis Webinar

    About the Course

    Join Michael Holloway for this two session course from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm ET on

    • August 14th
    • August 21st

    Lubricating oil has many functions that are well understood such as reducing wear, thermal management, and corrosion protection to name a few. Lubricating oil also functions as a conduit of information as well as the reason why systems can fail. The process of Root Cause Analysis involves a series of questions such as what happened, why it happened and what can be done to prevent it from happening again. It involves examining the problem and considering evidence from many technologies such as oil analysis, vibration analysis, thermography, ultrasonic analysis, component inspections, and operational data. This webinar provides participants a process to determine the various failure modes of lubrication and how to process root cause analysis using various techniques. Participants will be able process information and make decisions on selection of proper product performance, application conditions, and understand how to mitigate failures associated with lubrication.


    What You'll Learn

    Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:

    • Describe failure modes due to contamination, oil condition, and application conditions
    • Determine the source of contamination
    • Select the proper application conditions to mitigate failure
    • Explain the sources of failure and root cause analysis


    Target Audience

    This webinar is geared towards attendees in Quality Assurance, Engineering, Manufacturing Executives, Maintenance, Safety, and Technicians.
