The first defense against chronic equipment failure is a solid preventive maintenance (PM) program. One of the more important aspects of a PM program is proper and periodic lubrication of rotating equipment. This computer based training program provides a thorough understanding of lubricant choices. Interactive aids make this a solid training and reference tool. Learn proper lubrication methods and how to analyze oil test results.
