TRAINING- FERROGRAPHY AND WEAR DEBRIS MONITORING

FERROGRAPHY AND WEAR DEBRIS MONITORING

Get started today! You can become Ferrographer in 5 days

This course is designed to provide attendees with a working knowledge of Ferrographic analysis and its relationship to used lubricant analysis. Attendees will work side-by-side with best analysts in a hands-on, practical, and a personalized learning forum

You will fine-tune your equipment condition analysis skills while you perform tests on up to 5 of your own samples, from the initial testing all the way to the final analysis. This dynamic learning session will help you uncover real world issues, allowing you to order maintenance procedures as soon as you return to your plant.

Our 5 DAY COURSE

Our 5 DAY COURSE is designed to cover the essentials and knowledge to become certified from ICML, USA (International Council for Machinery Lubrication). An optional 5th day is available to prepare and take the exam. More info can be found at www.lubecouncil.org .
