The article "Lubrication for Life" appeared in the October 2020 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.
Lubrication plays a vital role in the performance and life of rolling element bearings, yet its significance is often underestimated.

A lubricant that is designed for specific operating conditions will provide a load bearing wear protective film.
