Workshops: Lubrication and lubricants (both automotive and industrial)

Designed and presented by Petr Vavruch, run by The South African Institution of Mechanical Engineering


Practical lubrication and lubricants

Everything that can fit into one day. Written for engineers and very practical. Includes very little theory of lubrication and chemistry - only what is necessary to understand the essentials. Intensive but interactive. Easy access to more than 1500 useful web sites.

Lubricants and oil monitoring

The second, optional, day of the above workshop. Designed to help retain the knowledge gained the first day. More fun and highly interactive. Also monitoring of lubricants in service and daily checks of plant equipment etc.

It is highly recommended that, for the best results, both workshops are attended making it a two day workshop.

Two workshops in 2018, positively evaluated by all participants, were held in Benoni, East Rand, Gauteng on 14-15 March
and in Newlands, Cape Town on 12-13 September.

Some of the comments about the workshop:

Thank you, I found your workshop most informative and practical. I can apply a wide range of the information you shared.
(André B)

Thank you for the course yesterday. It was very worthwhile and probably the most informative course I have been on through SAIMechE. I encourage you to keep going and teaching the younger generation as you have a real gifting in teaching.

Lubrication and oil sampling

A two-day workshop based on the above two workshops but designed for needs of a specific company. Thus this workshop is in-house, not public. Maximum 20 participants. Already run very successfully to train 180 artisans of a major company.
