Spectro Scientific recently introduced a new oil analysis fundamentals training course to provide information on lubricant analysis and its critical role in increasing machinery life and uptime. Presented in partnership with Noria Corporation, the online training class defines oil sampling frequencies, describes sampling methods and equipment retrofitting, and summarizes basic oil analysis techniques. The course also discusses lubricant care and maintenance, including contamination control techniques, lube room storage and management, and ways to keep lubricants cool, dry and clean.
"In addition to providing world-leading fluid analysis instrumentation and software, Spectro wants to help end users understand the basics of oil analysis processes and also make them aware of ways they can maximize the performance and working life of their lubricants," said Yuegang Zhao, Spectro Scientific senior vice president. "Our new Oil Analysis Fundamentals course is a convenient and accessible introduction to analytical techniques and fluid maintenance concepts."
The new course consists of six modules, each followed by a quiz to reinforce important points and confirm understanding of the material. At the end of the course, students will receive a certificate of completion that can be printed or saved. This basic overview of oil analysis fundamentals is not intended to replace machinery lubrication courses available for certification through the International Council for Machinery Lubrication (ICML). Details on ICML certification are available at https://icmlonline.com.
