50% of all premature bearing failures are due to lubrication or contamination issues!
- Too much lubricant
- Too little lubricant
- Not lubricated often enough
- Wrong type of lubricant
- Contamination of the lubricant with water, dirt etc.
With manual lubrication, the bearing is lubricated normally when the machine is NOT running. This involves shutting down the equipment and may involve maintenance having to remove guarding to access the points all resulting in lost production.
