Summary:

Gas engines, especially those which run on landfill waste gas or bio-gases, require careful monitoring: They are not only exposed to extreme mechanical and thermal stress, but problems are also caused by a highly variable composition and impurities of the gases used to operate the engine. All this directly influences the condition of the gas engine and the gas engine oil. A regular monitoring of the gas engine oil is the key to avoid problems.

By understanding the results of oil analysis in combination with the appropriate knowledge how gas, oil and the engine work together, technicians can reduce gas type related risks to a tolerable minimum. To define a reliable condition, based oil drain intervals and well defined limit values for the different test methods are unalterable. While attending all seven modules of this practical oriented online-training series participants will learn everything about lubrication and monitoring of gas engines, the choice of the right lubricant, how to define optimal oil drains intervals and how to establish reliable application related limit values.

Easy to attend!

All you need is a broadband internet connection, a current Internet Browser with Flash Player, a headset / speakers for your laptop, PC or tablet and one hour time. Take part in our online-training - no matter where you are! The Adobe Connect App is available for Apple, Android and Blackberry tablets, for free.

Every module is a separate learning entity and can be booked separately.

If you book at least 3 modules at once you receive a discount of 5%.

The series is repeated at regular intervals. You can always enter or catch up on individual modules, if an appointment is inconvenient for you.
