Assessment of equipment lubrication
Equipment lubrication requirements will most commonly be categorized according to one
of the main applications: Conveyors, electric motors, pumps or blowers & fans.
Assessment may also include: Reference to lubrication specifications from original
equipment manufacturer (OEM), consideration of variations in equipment, bearing size and
orientation as well as bearing housing and seal configuration.
Additional operational and environmental assessment criteria include: Equipment ope-
rating speeds, ambient temperature, operating temperature, bearing load and drive type,
equipment vibration and the presence and severity of solid and liquid contaminants.
This catalog has been developed to assist the reader by outlining the application and
equipment assessment process and linking this to the specification of a complete perma
automatic lubrication solution.
