The advantages of Durolub are used in many applications and branches. We have picked some major applications and show typical installations and the benefit you have using a Durolub lubricated bearing.
Why is it essential to care about lubrication?
Investigations of different sources always show the same or a very similar picture – the main reasons for premature bearing failures are lubrication related.
10% of the bearings are changed prematurely , about 9,5% during service and maintenance work and approximately 0,5% fail.
As there are no statistics for bearings changed during maintenance and repair, one can assume that the reasons for changing bearings during maintenance and repair are quite the same as for premature bearing failures.
In figures that means around 600 million bearings of every years production fail or need to be changed because of lubrication related reasons.
Bearings with integrated seals – factory lubricated
these are very convenient solutions for 90% of all applications. A “good enough, economical” standard grease, mostly based on mineral oil and lithium soap, is filled into the bearings which are sealed in different ways – ready to use.
The remaining 10% of the users have troubles to operate their machines to the planned life-span. Genuine solutions from the bearing makers are difficult to get and often extremely expensive.
