Instructions for Use
SwanTek Industry Notes - Application of Bearing Lubricants. Ball & Roller Bearing Lubrication Made Easy

The Principles
Ball and roller bearings require very little lubricant. The principle of their design and the design of spaces around them (grease cavities) is to provide lubrication with a very thin film on the tracks and rolling elements.

This is provided by the oil that slowly bleeds from the grease in the cavities. It can be seen therefore that it is not necessary to have the bearing and cavities completely full. In fact, this can be disadvantageous on high speed bearings, since the grease will be continuously churned, which may well lead to overheating and excessive oil leakage from the bearing housing or even premature failure.

The only time that bearings and housing can be completely filled and kept full is when:
•Bearings are at slow speed.
•Sealing is poor.
•Conditions are very dusty.

Initial Greasing
•Wash off any corrosion preventive with a suitable solvent then dry. Care should be taken to ensure all parts are completely clean and grit free.
•The tracks, cage and rolling elements should then be lightly coated with grease and the bearing spun to distribute the grease.
•The remainder of the measured quantity of grease should be distributed in the housing or grease cavities, so that it is adjacent to the bearing. An approximate guide on initial fill quantities is given below (these can vary dependent upon bearing and housing design).

•Wipe the grease nipple or fitting to clean off any accumulated dirt or grit.
•Pump in the required quantity of grease as detailed below (a standard cartridge gun applies 1g of grease per shot), making allowance for any leakage at the nipple.
•Wipe the nipple clean.
