When you buy a coupling, for example, you want it to work well for as long as possible so you don’t have to spend more money to replace that coupling. In order to make sure your coupling works well for a long time, you first have to know what can be done to maximize the life of that coupling.

  • What Lubrication Method Should I Use?

    Lubricants are a critical factor in the performance and life of a rolling element bearing. Less than 10 percent of bearings reach their theoretical L10 life, and poor lubrication can be attributed to 80 percent of those that fall short. Ideally, a lubricant forms a film layer between moving components in a bearing, separating moving parts, minimizing friction and preventing wear between balls or rollers, raceways and retainers. Lubricants also protect metal surfaces from corrosion and moisture, dissipate heat and can even prevent the ingress of contaminants.
