Introduction to Hydraulics:
Lubrication Fundamentals, Hydraulic Fluids and Their Applications
"By understanding the fluids, you can design the system better."
Join us on March 27, 2012 in Brookfield, Wisconsin (USA) for this course co-hosted by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers and STLE.
This course is divided into two main areas: it covers lubrication fundamentals in the morning to ensure everyone has a good foundation of knowledge which will assist with the afternoon portion of the course - hydraulic fluids and applications.
With this course, you'll walk away knowing basic lubrication concepts including friction, lubrication and wear, and how these will help you in your day-to-day work, and then you'll be able to apply these concepts to hydraulic fluids, understanding the differences between conventional, fire resistant, synthetics and greens, and the suffering points that each of the products bring to the table.
