2021 Fall and 2022 Spring Program

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.

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!

The STLE Toronto Section uses events like this to help spread the word and also to raise funds. These funds are used to support the section activities and to provide donations and assistance to local universities and colleges. No money raised goes to salaries or expenses.

Help! Get the water out!

Of all the contaminants that can be present within an oil system, water can be the most destructive while also being the most difficult contaminant to detect. Understanding how to measure and prevent the presence of both dissolved and free water within an industrial oil system is crucial to achieving lower equipment maintenance costs and increased reliability.

View this latest installment in Pall Corporation’s global webinar series as we discuss best practices for how to detect and remedy this “hidden enemy” in your fluid system before it’s too late!

    Hi, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!
