Lubrication for ZGB Bearings
Lubricating grease consists of a mineral or synthetic oil combined with a thickener. The thickeners are usually metallic soaps. However, other thickeners, e.g. polyurea can be used for superior performance in certain areas, i.e. high temperature applications. Additives can also be included to enhance certain properties of the grease. The consistency of the grease depends largely on the type and concentration of the thickener used and on the operating temperature of the application. When selecting a grease, the consistency, operating temperature range, viscosity of the base oil, rust inhibiting properties and the load carrying ability are the most important factors to be considered.
