Techni-Tip: Anti-Friction Bearing Lubrication  
  • A ball or roller bearing, in most applications, will have adequate lubrication if the grease level is at one-third to one-half the capacity of the housing space. A greater amount will be discharged and wasted.
  • Where low torque is a requirement, bearings may be lubricated with a very small amount of grease.
  • Where speed is very low and bearing is exposed to dirt or moisture, the bearing may be packed nearly full.
  • High speed and high temperature usually require more frequent greasing than normal.
  • Don't overfill bearings. The lubricant will ooze out of overfilled housing, collect dirt and cause trouble.
  • Too much lubricant can also cause overheating. This is particularly true of high-speed bearings.
  • Store grease in clean, covered containers.
  • Handle grease with clean paddles or grease guns.
