Improper lubrication is the #1 cause of premature bearing failure.
What makes greasing a bearing so challenging?
- Bearings perform best with an ideal grease fill – yet seals obstruct the view, making the quantity almost impossible to know.
- The greasing process can introduce damaging contaminants.
- Maintenance of hard to reach bearings can be difficult and sometimes impossible.
- Lubrication systems may send varying quantities and qualities of grease to each bearing.
- Grease life can expire, preventing it from creating the repeated oil film required.
WHAT IS PERMANENT LUBRICATION?
Permanent lubrication can make your bearings work more effectively.
Permanent lubrication is an oil-saturated polymer material molded into the interior of the bearing, filling all internal space without impeding the rolling elements. And can hold up to four times the base oil as most greased bearings.
How does lubrife stack up to it's competitors?
Grease is used in 90% of bearing applications however only 10% of bearings reach their calculated lifespan.
Contaminants - particularly in hard-to-reach applications where maintenance is difficult - can pose challenges for bearing longevity. Permanent lubrication resists contaminants, avoids common issues associated with grease, and greatly reduces stoppages.
LUBRILIFE was tested against other permanent lubricants offered by 2 of our competitors.
Lubrilife fills the entire bearing cavity without impeding the rolling elements.
Lubrilife acts as an additional seal, in conjunction with the bearing seals.
Lubrilife provides oil for the life of the bearing. Never manually grease a bearing again
A FORETHOUGHT, NOT AN AFTERTHOUGHT.
Lubrilife is a manufacturing step, not a modification.
Most competitors’ solid lubrication is an aftermarket modification requiring permanent removal of a seal. The bearing (shown below) has had the remaining factory seal removed to show how an incomplete polymer fill leaves rolling elements exposed.
An incomplete fill creates drawbacks such as:
In contrast, Lubrilife is applied before the seal is attached: a forethought, not an afterthought.
