About this Training Course 

This 2-day course provides participants with a fundamental understanding of how the automotive engine is subjected to various load stresses. Additives such as dispersant, detergent, anti-oxidant and anti-wear agents are critical in providing all round protection for the engine. Base oils characteristics and classifications are also discussed in detail to enable participants to have a better understanding in base oil selection. Brief lubricant qualification process is provided. Lubricant blending plant operations, testing and management are also examined to provide an insight into the lubricant manufacturing environment. This course will serve to enrich the understanding of proper lubricant protection for the automotive.

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the stress/oxidation/wear that the engine parts are subjected to
  • Understand the importance of protection of engine parts with various functional additives
  • Develop an understanding of basestocks characteristics and classification
  • Get equipped on lab testing requirements of lube blending, understand blending plant operation considerations and management

This easy-to-digest and practical training course will help entry to mid-level lubricant business executives understand the broad operational aspects of an efficient lubricant blending plant. It will also help blending plant operators and technicians to visualise why and how to protect the engine by using properly selected lubricants. Manufacturers of lubricants will understand how and why high quality components and effective testing during the entire blending process are important to the final lubricant product quality and performance. Lubricant plant executives will understand the importance of close communication and co-operation with plant members to minimise blending costs and waste. This course will also benefit non-engineering staff and non-lubricant specialists.
