SKF have introduced a new bearing lubricant service that provides expert advice on the correct greases to use for any type of bearing in a given application.
It has long been recognized that the lubricant is one of the most important and influential components in a bearing. Making the correct lubricant selection can be a daunting prospect given that there are about 20,000 different types of bearing covering over a million different applications. As a result, it is estimated that 36% of all bearing failures are caused by incorrect lubrication.
While it is true that all grease is composed of 90% oil and 10% thickener, SKF’s extensive range of lubricants offers a broad range of properties. Understanding these characteristics, SKF’s lubrication experts provide complete assurance by identifying the optimum grease for any product and application combination. Users can contact them directly on tel: (01582) 496639.
