￼￼Understanding specific oil applications is crucial to all who work in the factoring business. To this end, Morris Lubricants is running a number of training days to educate those who would like to learn more.
For the last six months Morris Lubricants has been running its ‘Theory of Lubrication’ training days to educate its customers and consumers on the importance of using the correct oil. With a vast knowledge compiled over 149 years in the lubricant industry, the company wants to pass on as much information to help factors understand the finer details when it comes to the theory of lubrication.
Automotive Product Manager, Adrian Hill, has developed a selection of training modules to help customers understand specific features of lubricants and lubrication, with great feedback coming from those attending.
Adrian expanded on why he feels it is so important to pass on his years of experience in the industry: “One of the end goals of this training is to provide distributors and end users with enough useful information to enable them to make an informed decision when it comes to selecting the correct grade of oil for the job.
“But, perhaps an even more important lesson to be learned is what can happen if an incorrect lubricant is used. The automotive lubricant world is filled with hieroglyphs, but a good basic understanding of what it all means, and why there are differences, can make the distributor more confident.”
Adrian continued, “For me, the enjoyable part of the training is about passing on information that I’ve lived with and sorted through in my head over the last 30 years, so that others don’t have to go through the ‘pain’ of doing the same. Most of our attendees already have a strong grasp of the mechanical side of things and helping them see how the world of mechanical systems and lubricants fit together is very satisfying. After all, it’s not rocket science, but for most people it has never been correctly explained. There is a simple logic to it once you know how.”
“I go to great lengths not to make it too complicated. It’s human nature to wax lyrical about your chosen field of expertise, but I’ve never wanted lubricant technology to appear as a foreign language to our customers. If our customers can see the structure behind it and are able to make a ‘real world’ connection, then my job is done. I’m no different when I’m enquiring about subjects outside of my comfort zone. A simplified and practical introduction usually whets my appetite and then I want to know more.”
Morris Lubricants encourages all to enquire about attending the Theory of Lubrication seminars as it is a great opportunity for all who would like to extend their oil and lubricant knowledge.
