Bearing Lubricants for Electro-Mechanical Industry
Regardless of the application, reliability of the apparatus is dependent upon accurate lubrication. Applying proper bearing lubricants reduces friction between the sliding surfaces and prevents metal to metal contact while protecting the components from oxidization and corrosion. Over 50 % of all bearing failures are attributed to improper or contaminated lubrication. Over lubricating can be as problematic as under lubricating, both leading to premature failure. Avoid mixing lubricants as compatibility issues can be very challenging. Bartlett Bearing Company, Inc. supplies a variety of premium bearing lubricants, grease and sealant products.
