A high-performance lubricant from Lubrication Engineers (LE) properly selected for the specific application and type of equipment is the first step in ensuring long-lasting operation of an electric motor.
After that, using the proper amount of lubricant and applying it in recommended intervals will further ensure efficient performance.
In servicing electric motor bearings, both underlubrication and overlubrication are harmful. Underlubrication will result in bearing failure through the inability of the insufficient amount of lubricant to perform successfully any one of its functions. Excess grease can lead to overheating and excessive leakage at bearing seals.
