In this interview, John Sander, Vice President of Research and Development at Lubrication Engineers, goes in depth about industrial grease. He explains what grease is, how it is different from lubricating oil, how to choose the correct grease for an application, the different types of thickeners used in grease, the reason many grease formulators are moving away from lithium thickeners, the NLGI grease grade scale, and what’s coming in the future for grease formulators and end users..

The 2020 calendar year has certainly brought with it many challenges for a variety of industries. The medical field, pulp and paper industry and food supply chain have all been significantly impacted by the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. At the grocery store, people experienced (or are still experiencing) empty shelves, limited food supply and less variety when doing weekly shopping. In March 2020, grocery and supply sales increased 29% from the previous year (3).

Leaks can form practically anywhere in a plant. This includes pressurised systems and systems under a vacuum.While it is important to locate potential safety hazards from leaks, the loss of gases through leaks can be very costly.

In the presentation, we will go back to the basics and discuss the physics of vibration at a basic level. For example, the harmonic oscillator is one of the simplest concepts to understand yet governs most of vibration. At the same time, it is also the example that most physical concepts are applied to first from simple F=ma to complex electrodynamics problems. This presentation will be at the beginner’s level. No physics background needed. We will discuss where some of the basic tenets of vibration originate from and explore vibration from a whole new angle. If you are interested in vibration and want to see it in a new light this is for you.

While Industry 4.0 has brought real-time monitoring of assets to the forefront, what are we learning? In this webinar we’ll explore several case studies of continuously monitored assets. We’ll also look at case studies from vibration and ultrasound that show conditions that were undetected with route-based monitoring.

What is a thermal image?
Thermal images are created by converting thermal radiation into a visible light image that we as humans can interpret. One important point to remember about thermal imaging is that it is a non-contact measurement of radiated energy in a very narrow wavelength band.

The use of Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) to control AC motors has increased dramatically in recent years due to their energy savings, low operating cost, and high performance. However, the challenge with VFDs lies in the destructive electrical currents (voltages) that are induced along the rotating motor shaft and discharged to the frame through the bearings, leaving damage to the bearing surfaces known as Electrical Discharge Machining, or EDM.
