Course Description

When reviewing your TestOil Analysis Report, you may not be sure what elemental test data implies about your lubrication and equipment. This course dives into the wear metals that are detected by elemental spectroscopy. Taking a close look at each wear metal’s common causes. With this knowledge you will have a much better grasp on where you and your maintenance team should look when trying to determine a wear source from your test results. This course also covers exceptional sources to look to, if the common sources does not apply. Earn points throughout this course as you try to earn the high score!

Key concepts covered include:

  • How wear metal concentration is measured using Elemental Spectroscopy
  • The metallic elements that attribute to machine wear
  • Common sources of each wear metal
  • Exceptional sources to look to for each wear metal
