Triangle's bearings have many lubrication options ranging from oil to grease to more specialized options. Applications, materials and maintenance requirements all affect which lubrication method will work best for your bearing.

LUBRICATION

BEARINGS WITH OIL CUPS

We recommend relubrication of bearings at the time of installation even though a full supply of oil is provided at the factory. Conditions encountered during shipping and storage may cause some oil loss. Triangle Steel Bearing Ball Units have large oil retaining felts for substantial lubricant capacity. Once the bearing is in use and the ball and felt saturated with oil, long bearing life may be expected under proper operating conditions. The standard oil supplied is a good grade of industrial mineral oil, NON-DETERGENT, SAE 30 viscosity. Bearing use at elevated or very low temperatures may require oil of a different viscosity.

BEARINGS WITH GREASE FITTINGS

Bearings with grease fittings ARE NOT FACTORY LUBRICATED. Grease should be applied with a pressure gun at the time of installation, filling the ball unit and bearing until grease appears at the shaft surface.

BEARINGS WITH SPECIAL LUBRICANT

BEARING LUBRICATION TYPES CHART

Sleeve bearings may be broadly classified into two types, i.e., liquid lubricated and dry or solid lubricated view full resource
