What the expert say:
Only appropriate lubrication can guarantee the optimal operation of bearings and the related mechanical assembly. Only appropriate lubrication can guarantee the optimal operation of bearings and the related mechanical assembly. 55% of premature bearing failure is caused by inappropriate lubrication. Inadequate lubrication will substantially shorten the service life of the bearing. Bearing lubrication is often neglected due to the difficulty of accessing bearings and the operator's lack of lubricant knowledge. Selecting the right lubricant, the right lubrication method, the precise quantity required for the bearing and the frequency of monitoring the lubrication are all critical points.
Principle and benefits of good lubrication
Lubrication is an integral part of the bearing.
The service life of the bearing is directly related to the effectiveness of the oil film, which depends on:
- the type of lubricant, its specific heat capacity, resistance to vibrations, etc.
- the load and speed of the bearing.
NTN-SNR has carried out research in this field with the leading international lubricant manufacturers for more than half a century.
We therefore have knowledge and practical experience for most lubricants used with bearings.
