August 22, 2014, Mississauga, Ont. – Automatic Greasing
Systems specialist FLO Components Ltd. has announced the schedule for its 2014-2015
Lube Basics Seminars. Scheduled cities will include Kitchener, Mississauga,
Sudbury and Thunder Bay.

 

In a study conducted by a major component manufacturer,
improper lubrication accounts for 53% of all bearing failures, a major cause of
equipment downtime and significant unnecessary maintenance costs. According to
FLO’s Marketing Specialist Gabriel Lopez; “FLO Lube Basics Seminars are
designed to help you avoid common lubrication failures by turning your
personnel into “Lubrication Specialists”.

“Each 1-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, 3rd 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.”

 

Some of the topics to be covered in the seminars include:

·                Basic
principles of friction/wear, lubricants and lubricant types

·               
Grease properties/compatibility/applications

·               
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
