Lubrication Contamination and the Effect on Pin Bushings
When excessive contamination builds up between a pin and bushing surface the rotation of the pin and the pressure load begins to dig contamination into the bronze bushing. Over time this contamination builds up and begins to restrict the movement of the pin by increasing friction.
Don’t Let Grease Guns Get In the Way of Improving Your Productivity
On the surface, manual grease guns and tubes of moly or synthetic grease may seem like a cost-effective solution for equipment lubrication, but you must factor in some important considerations when deciding what’s right for you.
Moly Grease vs. Lithium: What’s the Big Deal?
Moly is used because it sticks to other materials and helps protect bearings that are not lubricated consistently. With automatic lubrication, there may not be the same need for Moly because every bearing will receive the grease it requires to keep it lubricated and purged of contaminants.
Selecting the Proper Grease for a Given Climate
In colder climates it is important to select a grease that will not freeze at the lowest temperature to which it will be exposed. In warmer climates, attention must be given to how a grease performs at higher temperatures.
Recognizing Clogged Grease Zerks
When maintenance personnel or the operator is tasked with lubricating equipment, it’s possible they may encounter grease zerks that refuse to accept lubricant. This article aims to help identify common causes of clogged grease zerks.
