Basic Lubrication

4.2 14 Reviews SKU: GMLU00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

Whenever movement takes place between surfaces that are in contact with each other, friction or resistance to the movement occurs. Friction between moving parts of industrial equipment can cause excessive heat and wear. Lubrication helps reduce and control friction. It is the act of applying a substance called a lubricant to create a slippery barrier between surfaces that would otherwise come in contact. This course covers various types of friction and different kinds of lubricants.
