The Caterpillar online learning system consists of 18 training modules that are designed to give people of all career levels the technical knowledge they need to either kick-start their technical careers or boost their careers in the construction and mining industry. Module 5 of the online course is entitled “Assembly – contamination & part handling” and it will take approximately one hour to complete.
During this course, learners will find out more about the importance of contamination and part handling. As a technician, you will be entrusted with ensuring that the equipment you use lasts a long time; that it performs optimally and that downtime is kept to a minimum. In order to achieve this goal, you will need to focus on avoiding any contamination and ensuring that all vital parts are handled correctly.
How does equipment get contaminated?
Generally speaking, contamination happens when contaminants gain access to a machine through fluid systems such as coolants, hydraulic fluid or fuel. These contaminants can be microscopic and therefore it will be difficult to pick up with the naked eye. Some of the contaminants that may have a negative impact on machinery include fibres, paint, spatter from welding, dirt and metals.
In this module, learners will be taught about the strict contamination control guidelines that Caterpillar technicians follow when handling and storing parts and equipment. By completing this module, you will be able to contribute to the longevity of the machines that you operate, optimise the performance of the machines as well as minimise costly downtime and repairs for your company.
