Lube Oil Analysis and Tribology


To improve reliability of plant, many companies implement predictive maintenance program that using various technology to monitor machine health and eliminate at least reduce unplanned breakdown and extend MTBF of machine.

As vibration, oil analysis is important technology in monitoring critical machine. Gearbox and turbine are examples machines that more powerful if monitored using oil analysis technology.

Common problem that occurred are method and procedure of sampling oil, interpretation of oil analysis report and non integration of oil analysis report with other technology like vibration. This course explain how to good sample method, how to analyze data, interpret report and how to integrate oil analysis data with vibration to build comprehensive report.

This course is designed to help you prepare for the Machine Lubricant Analyst (MLA) certification. It covers foundational oil analysis information including oil sampling, lubricant health monitoring, contamination measurement and control, and wear debris monitoring.
