Why is the choice of lubricant so important?

Lubrication solutions maximise your bearings service life. 

Selecting bearing grease suitable for the application is critical to achieving optimum performance.

For example, applications which are operating under high temperatures need a specialist high temperature lubricant, such as SKF LGHP 2. 

Additionally, the quantity of grease and the lubrication method used can positively influence the service life of the bearing. Too much grease can cause a seal failure, whereas too little grease can cause excessive wear and premature component failure.
