18 May 2012 Monitoring and thermal effects of relubrication of greased bearings
Author Affiliations +
Grease lubrication of rolling element bearings is one of the most common lubricated scenarios in industry. The exact behavior of greases while equipment is in operation is not well understood. This paper will detail studies that provide insight into the thermal behavior, flow characteristics of the non-newtonian greases, and changes in grease properties in operating rolling-element bearings.
