perma lubrication systems

STEP 1: Assess application

Electric motors

Electric motor bearing relubrication is a critical aspect of maintenance. As with other high

speed bearing applications, it is important for relubrication practices to consider the risks

associated with over-lubrication while providing sufficient relubrication to deliver long bearing

service life.

The combination of the following practices can provide a lubrication program which avoids

over-lubrication and lubricant starvation:

Add small amounts of grease at short intervals using an automatic lubrication system

which provides accurate dispensing rates, independent of temperature

Relubricate when the motor is in operation

Always ensure that discharged grease can escape from the bearing housing via well

maintained grease escape holes or collection traps
