The Three Mistakes of Bearing Lubrication

2020-8-19The Three Mistakes of Bearing Lubrication Friction is all around us Without it we would find it very difficult to run walk or even stand on our own two feet We need friction to drive our cars and fly our aeroplanes and we need friction for our motors to drive pumps But when it comes to our plant machinery friction is both friend and foe

Get your bearings: Electric motor lubrication 101

How often your facility's electric motors should be lubricated—and how much lubricant they should receive—depends on several factors When you're considering electric motor lubrication frequency and quantity take into account the following: Is the lubricant grease or oil? Is the bearing type sleeve ball or roller? If it is a ball bearing is the enclosure open shielded or sealed?
