New webinar series Lubricants & Coolants - 3 parts - on September 14, 16 & 17

LUM GmbH and LUM France invite all to the new webinar series Lubricants and Coolants.

 

The first part was broadcasted on September 14 and the second part on September 16.

Thanks to all participants.

The recorded webinars will be available soon via the LUM webinars page (free registration).

 

The third webinar starts from a different point of view: the naked eye appearance of samples, being either transparent, turbid or even dark. A silicon oil case study proves insight into the easy and fast sample ranking by the separation index. Understand the kinetics of separation when calculating the creaming velocity. The concept of comparative shelf-life analysis according to ISO/TR 13097 is demonstrated.
The advantage of measuring samples at different temperatures is highlighted for a transparent concentrate. Turbid samples, like o/w- or w/o-emulsions are characterized either accelerated (LUMiSizer) or in real-time by the Separation Analyser LUMiReader®PSA. The case study for dark lubricants again refers to accelerated testing, as applied by the customers.

September 17, 2 pm (UTC+2/CEST)

Each webinar can be attended individually. The presenting authors will be available for live Q&A in each session. Joining the entire series will enable you to solve your current and upcoming tasks in the characterization of lubricants and coolants in an even better way.
