Prolong Bearing Life with Proper and Effective Lubrication

The biggest cause of bearing failure can be attributed to improper lubrication. At least 36% of all bearing failures is also triggered by insufficient lubrication, incorrect grease usage, and degraded grease. Therefore, it is essential to understand that selection of appropriate lubricants and knowledge on when to relubricate are keys to having efficient component operation.

It is critical that greases and lubricants are precisely matched to the applications these are to be utilized for. Bearings have varied operating conditions and specialized needs that all-purpose greases might not meet and thus usage of such can do an equipment more harm than good.

Lubricants and greases are fundamental components of a bearing arrangement. These should be regarded as important as the bearing, housing, and sealing in any equipment. In choosing the right oil for use in bearings, determination of several factors including bearing type, size, temperature, speed, and load must be done thoroughly. With successful identification of these, you can prolong a bearing’s life, therefore paving a step closer to extending your equipment’s life as well.

Avoid bearing performance failure by using only superior quality greases and lubricants.
