Chevron's Lubricants University, an online training resource offering information on technologies and trends in the lubrication and maintenance industry, announced that archived issues of Lubrication magazine are now available free of charge on its Web site.
Lubrication magazine has published nearly 1,000 issues since 1911. The magazine has a history of providing in-depth knowledge and analysis of the lubricants industry, with each issue presenting a thorough look at a subject of interest. With a large portion of the Lubrication archive now available online, readers are able to research a particular lubrication area from previous years to increase understanding of the changes in additive chemistry, manufacturing and equipment maintenance.
"By making past Lubrication issues available online, we have created a central area for lubrication research to thrive," says Virginia Moser, training coordinator at Chevron Products Company. "Our site is a resource for maintenance and lubrication professionals to increase their knowledge regarding the development and application of lubricants. The addition of this extraordinary resource increases the value of the experience we offer to our users and gives new life to one of the most respected, and historically significant, publications in this market."
Over 650 issues, dating back to 1920, have been made available online. The archived issues are indexed in five- or 10-year increments for easy reference and research purposes.
The Lubrication archives are available free of charge, to anyone visiting the Lubricants University Web site. Articles are available in PDF format and can be viewed online, printed or saved from the Web site.
