Regarding the lubrication of bearings: what are the risks of lack of lubrication?

Lack of lubrication is one of the most damaging conditions for bearing operation.

When the lubricating film between rolling elements and raceway surfaces breaks down, friction increases significantly, leading to a series of negative consequences, such as:

  • Premature wear
  • Increased operating temperatures
  • Noise and vibrations
  • Damages
  • Machine downtime / plant shutdown
