October 25, 2013, Mississauga, Ont. – Automatic Greasing
Systems specialist FLO Components Ltd. has announced the schedule for its
2013-2014 Lube Basics seminars. Scheduled cities will include London, Mississauga, Ottawa and Sudbury.

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
