Chevron’s Lubricants University, an educational website, has introduced two new courses, Automotive Grease and Industrial Grease, as part of its course catalog. The two modules are self-study, web-based programs designed for maintenance professionals interested in expanding their
knowledge of proper grease use and formulations.
The Automotive Grease course provides information on how grease products differ in terms of performance, base oil, additives and thickener types.
In addition, the module offers an overview of automotive grease, examines lubrication performance specifications and looks at automotive grease products currently in use. The course increases awareness of the specialized automotive greases designed to meet the requirements of highway automobiles and trucks, as well as off-road wheel and track vehicles.
The Industrial Grease course covers the appropriate quantity, re-greasing intervals, and product selection for proper lubrication in industrial applications such as electric motors, pumps and conveyors, and pins and bushings.
Other courses available include: Fundamentals of Lubrication (free), Heavy Duty Engine Lubrication, Base Oils, Fundamentals of Lubricant Additives, Hydraulic System Lubrication, Industrial Gear Lubrication,
Automotive Gear Lubrication, and Heavy Duty Coolants.
Courses are available to the general public and cost US$59.95 each. All Lubricants University courses offer a certificate of completion once a student has successfully completed the training.
