Lubricants and Bearings

This interactive training unit is designed to familiarize trainees with the types of lubricants and bearings used in industrial facilities. After completing this unit, trainees should be able to explain how lubricants reduce friction, describe the characteristics of oil and grease, and describe applications in which oils and greases are used as lubricants. Trainees should also be able to name several solid lubricants, and give an example of a synthetic lubricant. In addition, trainees should be able to describe sleeve bearings, rolling element bearings, and radial loads and thrust loads on shafts and bearings.
