Getting smart about grease

SKF on lubricant links, regreasing railway bearings and getting smarter about grease storage.

SOMETHING as simple as grease condition can significantly affect maintenance intervals for rail cars.

Grease selection is a complex and critical topic.

Technology and innovation in railway components have resulted in wheels and bearings capable of delivering service life far greater than previously possible.

While bearing components have been optimised through new and better materials, innovative design engineering, bearing performance is affected primarily by the grease within the bearing.
