Why Choose this Training Course?

The Complete Course on Tribology training course provides fundamental and advanced knowledge into this important topic. Tribology is the technology of friction, wear and lubrication and it has very important role on all equipment used in industry. Mitigating thermal stresses, washing out equipment wear debris and dirt, protection against friction, wear and corrosion are amongst main functions of lubrication. However, to ensure meeting those functions, most suitable lubricants must be chosen and correct procedures for testing and assessing their characteristics shall be adopted.

This AZTech training course will feature:

  • Appreciation of materials behavior and fundamental properties
  • Comprehensive and cost-effective understanding of maintenance engineering
  • Theoretical knowledge of friction, wear and lubrication in an industrial context
  • Oil lubricants properties and performance evaluation
  • Practical skills in choosing and implementing most suitable lubrication systems

What are the Goals?

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand equipment failures and maintenance strategies
  • Evaluate current status of their process plant equipment
  • Choose the right lubricants for their equipment
  • Implement cost effective condition monitoring program
  • Outline and adopt best practices for mitigating equipment failures

Who is this Training Course for?

This AZTech training course is important for professionals, engineers and technicians who work on wide variety of industries. It will greatly benefit:

  • Process plant operation and production professionals
  • Chemical and process engineers
  • Maintenance and services engineers
  • Technicians who deal with maintenance activities
  • Process plant supervisors and managers
  • Mechanical Engineers
  • Oil & Gas Professionals

How will this Training Course be Presented?

This AZTech training course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. This includes delegate focused formal lectures combined with informal discussion periods and workshop sessions. The key elements of the training course will be explained through practical case studies drawn from best industrial practice supported by purposely-prepared short video clips.
