Solid Lubrication
Technology

Koyo solid lubrication is an alternative lubricant for bearings.

Koyo solid lubrication is an alternative lubricant for bearings.

It was developed by Koyo for applications where oil or grease does not provide the best lubricant solution.

The solid lube is inserted into the bearing in an injection molding machine. The compound of polyethylene, synthetic oil (~70%) and additives, provides a long lasting (forced) lubrication.

This lubrication technology is specifically interesting for severe operating conditions like oscillating movements, or moderate speed/high load applications.

This type of lubrication is not suitable for applications where operating temperatures of more than 85 degrees are reached.

Solid lube is currently offered for application in Needle -and Cylindrical roller bearings for which a sufficient volume is needed to justify the (small) investment for the unique injection mold, which is required for each bearing type & size.

FAQ

What is a spherical roller bearing?

Spherical roller bearings feature a large load rating and self-aligning capability. This type of bearing is suitable for low- or medium speed applications which involve heavy or impact loading. Spherical roller bearings are self-aligning, double-row, combination radial and thrust bearings. They use a spherical or crowned roller as the rolling element. The outer ring contains a spherical race which allows for some misalignment of the shaft and housing. Spherical roller bearings are unequalled in their capacity for high loads and tolerance to shock loads, but have limited speed capabilities. They perform consistently, even under conditions of extreme speed, application-specific stress, and marginal lubrication. The cage of a spherical roller bearing provides high dimensional accuracy and functionality. According to some estimates, spherical roller bearings have twice the running life of conventional bearings.
