Bearing failure resulting from improper lubrication is a major cause of equipment downtime and significant unnecessary maintenance costs in today’s environment. The majority of failures are caused by:
contamination in bearings and bushes by dust, dirt and moisture; inadequate amounts of lubricant applied to bearings; or over-lubrication of key pivot points.
Direct costs resulting from inadequate lubrication can include: replacement bearings; labour to repair or replace bearings; lost time and its impact on customer service; or lost “on-road” time and replacement truck rental costs.
