Poor/incorrect application of lubricant in bearings leads to, flaking of raceway material, smearing from rollers skidding and heat discolouration leading to seizure (lack of/incorrect lubricant) amongst others.
Bearing lubricants must have the right consistency and additives. They must be able to separate the rolling or sliding surfaces but not be so thick they churn and create excess friction and heat in the bearing.
As one of the UK’s largest suppliers of bearings ERIKS are ideally placed to take a rounded view of bearing lubrication, even if that means a sealed for life bearing and less lubricant.
Now you wouldn’t expect that from a lubricant supplier would you!
