WHY IS LUBRICATION IMPORTANT FOR MACHINES AND EQUIPMENTS ?
|| Machine parts work in harmony with each other. Under continuous loads or on vibrating machines to have efficient work done it is crucial to have touching surfaces lubricated
It is only possible to increase the efficiency of bearings that are found in housings, friction bearings or gear systems by lubricating them periodically.
FRICTION IS HEAVILY CORROSIVE
|| Lube prevents metals from wearing each other. A thin layer of protection gets in place by lubrication. This extra layer prevents the equipment from overheating and makes possible to have a more energy efficient workload.
Machine elements require low friction values for maximum efficiency. Working machine elements either turn or slide on top of each other. Those frictional parts need to be protected by lubrication to ensure the lowest frictional values possible.
