Lubrication is essential to continued performance and reliability of bearing assemblies. Lubricants are designed to fill microscopic surface irregularities reducing the friction and wear between rolling elements, raceways and carriages and also to protect surfaces against rust and corrosion.
The choice of an appropriate lubricant is often influenced by surroundings (e.g. non toxic or odourless environment) but is always primarily selected for operating conditions pertaining to temperature and speed ranges.
Action Bearing Distributors stock a large variety of Lubricants from CRC.
