APR 251 - Millwright: Pneumatics and Lubrications

5 Credit(s)

Designed for Oregon state-recognized apprentices employed in the millwright industry. This course is a comprehensive view of pneumatics where power is derived from the use of a gas, usually air. Topics will include pneumatic applications that require quick response, low and moderate precision, lower power and light to moderate load capacity requirements and the similarities and differences that pneumatics share with hydraulics. An overview of the special requirements of lubes and lubrication systems will be examined along with the various shapes and construction of bearings; their applications and specifications.

Prerequisite: Minimum reading score of 68 (Accuplacer) or 241 (Next Gen Accuplacer) OR minimum writing score of 64 (Accuplacer) or 226 (Next Gen Accuplacer) OR RD 080 OR RD 087  And EL 115R  OR Prior College.
