EDUCATION ON H1 LUBRICANTS NEEDED
An article in Food Processing magazine by Senior Editor Pan Demetrakakes highlights a need for education on food-grade lubricants in manufacturing facilities.
He wrote that there are still companies and, more specifically, maintenance personnel who are not familiar with the benefits of H1 lubricants. This unfamiliarity
indicates an opportunity for food-grade lubricant producers to expand awareness
in the industry and come up with inventive ways to improve compliance. Demetrakakes pointed out that some suppliers are trying to assist maintenance workers
by providing color-coding systems to match equipment with the right lubricant.
NEW TAPERED ROLLER BEARING DESIGN TO IMPROVE
LUBRICATION IN EVS
NSK Ltd., headquartered in Japan, has developed a new tapered roller bearing for
electric vehicles, or EVs (including hybrid, fuel cell and battery electric vehicles).
It claims the new bearings boost seizure resistance under lean lubrication conditions, improve gearbox reliability, enable the use of smaller lubrication systems,
increase efficiency and facilitate smaller gearbox designs. NSK developed the new
tapered bearing to overcome the problem of frequent seizure related to damage
from sliding contact typical of this type of bearing. The new bearing features a
special cage that retains and distributes oil in fine grooves via capillary action.
STLE PRESIDENT SHARES CRITICAL AREAS WHERE LUBRICANT
SOLUTIONS ARE NEEDED
In the November issue of Tribology and Lubrication Technology, Society of
Tribologists and Lubrication Engineers (STLE) President Michael Duncan wrote
about several critical areas where tribological and lubrication solutions are needed.
One area he focused on was electric vehicles (EVs). While much research and
development are already underway for EVs, Duncan said there is still work to be
done. He also wrote that a basic understanding of how solid lubricants work is
needed, as are simulations and predictors for surface chemistry interactions. Other
areas that require attention are extending friction modifier life in motor oils, novel
lubricant additives, biotribology and new lubricants for aerospace and trains.
MACHINERY LUBRICATION CONFERENCE BRINGS EDUCATION
TO HOUSTON
Hundreds of lubrication and reliability professionals from around the world met
in Houston in November at Noria's Machinery Lubrication Conference. Before
the conference officially started, attendees could take part in half-day workshops
on lubricant selection, root cause failure analysis for machinery, oil analysis
programs, and the design and implementation of lubrication programs. Once
the conference began, attendees had access to over 40 exhibitors and educational
sessions with topics ranging from the use of ultrasound for improving bearing
greasing practices to ways to prevent equipment contamination.
