Uploaded for 13/5/2020 - In episode 5 of the Underwater Technology Podcast, Tony Globe talks about his lifetime in the field of tribology - the science & engineering of interacting surfaces in relative motion. In the subsea engineering world, that means lubrication, friction & wear of systems such as valves, connectors and other components of seabed-based systems that may have to work with minimal or zero maintenance for many years. Tony talks about the choice of lubricating fluids depending on application, how long they last in service, pros and cons of different approaches and more. Find out more from [email protected]
