Lubrication is a vital part of any machine that moves. Understanding the mechanism that grease and oil use to provide that lubrication is important so that the maximum life of the equipment can be achieved. This presentation discusses ways to get the most benefit from the lubricant by choosing the proper oil or grease and properly maintaining the equipment. Critical to the process are compatibility, re-lubrication quantity and frequency and avoiding contamination.

This presentation is most useful for service center and field technicians, service center managers and engineers desiring to specify the proper lubricant and help motor users understand proper re-lubrication for the best effect.
