Reducing Tribological Losses and Failures – Part 8 Workshop

STLE TORONTO SECTION

2021 Fall and 2022 Spring Program

Oct 12th, 2021 , 10 AM to 11 AM, EST - Asset Management - Ken Bannister, Engtech Industries

Toronto Section Chair’s Welcome

On behalf of STLE Toronto Section, I would like to welcome you to our 2021-2022 program. Starting last year, STLE Toronto held several education webinars on-line and we will continue until we will have a safe environment for our attendees.

Our focus will be “cost savings” and / or “manufacturing cost reduction” based on better lubrication, better practices, and / or automated data gathering and processing. These helpful webinars will educate and empower attendees to contribute more to the company through these tough times.

I welcome you all on this program and hope to see you all there.

Program

Our technical program over the last few years was based on half day in-person workshops featuring 5-6 speakers. This worked well but with the current concerns about the Covid 19, we are adapting. A short survey determined that the most popular was a talk 30-45 minutes long, on one topic, and held mid-morning. We are also going with live video audio webinars which allows our participants to attend from wherever they are working and there is no time lost for travel. Plus, questions can be submitted in advance or during the presentations. As before we are focusing on technologies that can help save your company resources. This can be better as it might help tribological products last longer, save energy, reduce waste, and/or increase productivity. Win, win, win!

This is a free webinar and Registration fees are voluntary. We suggest $25.00 which will be used to pay for Student Memberships at local universities

Why attend: Asset management is key to a company’s performance and hence to their bottom line. In many regards Canada seems to be lagging behind other industrialized countries and one root cause might be a lack of appreciation by managers and technical staff of the importance of effective asset management. Plus, few engineering programs seem to cover it in sufficient detail. Listen in to better assist your companies and your customers.

 

Abstract:  Best practice maintenance organizations have long advocated that use of effective, measured, and documented asset management methods and work practices lead to increased safety, availability, reliability, throughput, due diligence, insurance reduction, energy reduction, and a reduced carbon footprint. The recently introduced  ISO 55000 Asset Management standard sets realistic expectations for asset management and defines structure and accountability for asset management best practices. This presentation provides an overview of  the ISO 55000 standards,  touches on the ICML 55 lubrication standard based on ISO 55000 and discusses the benefits of certifying against an industry standard

Webinar Notice for Tuesday, September 9

LANXESS Hybrid PU-CSC Grease. Innovative technology

that works harder and lasts longer.

Speakers: Wayne Mackwood, Global Head of Detergent and Grease Technology and, Andrew Keane, Global Marketing Analyst, LANXESS Corporation

Abstract: LANXESS has developed a new grease technology, which it is calling Hybrid Polyurea-Calcium Sulfonate Complex product or Hybrid PU-CSC. This grease technology marries the known performance of CSC grease (extreme pressure, antiwear, corrosion resistance, mechanical stability) with that of Polyurea grease technology (oxidation resistance and extended life) in a stable expanded performance grease platform. LANXESS is targeting applications where neither current CSC grease nor standard polyurea grease are ideally suited. This is clearly a sustainable grease technology as it enhances both component life as well as lubricant life. This discussion will describe the new technology, demonstrate its benefits, review some field trial results, and discuss the potential applications that will see benefit from it.
