Bearings need grease, however…
It’s a common misconception that if a little grease is good then a lot means better. WRONG!
Too much grease will overheat a bearing causing separation of the oil from its thickener and will begin to run out of the bearing. This can set off a chain reaction resulting in lack of lubrication & hardening of the thickener which left unchecked will cause major issues.
Many studies have shown that only 33% of the open space within a bearing needs to be filled to achieve optimum friction reduction.
33%? How do you that?
ALS Global (Australia’s largest condition monitoring service provider) conducted an independent study over an 18 month period using the LUBExpert. The device was used across a large volume of grease lubricated bearings which were historically replenished using fixed calculated / time based rates.
