Water: the silent bearing killer

By |2021-07-26T11:40:37+02:00June 18th, 2021|Blog|

Lubrication in Bearing Design Bearings are used to provide stable, low-friction movement for equipment. While each bearing will differ according to its use and specifications, they all face one common enemy: water contamination. The use of lubrication serves two main purposes: (i) aid in decreasing friction losses, and (ii) provide
