How optimised lubricants help increase bearing performance and reduce costs

We all know that appropriate lubrication is crucial to ensuring maximum operating life and performance of a rolling bearing. Alongside the inner and outer ring, the rolling elements and the bearing cage, the lubricant is therefore considered to be a bearing’s fifth design element. One thing is clear: The best possible bearing performance can only be achieved with the optimum, application-specific lubricant. Errors in lubrication are among the most frequent causes of unplanned downtime. It goes without saying that the correct lubrication cannot only increase the performance of rotating components, but also reduces TOC, sometimes by up to six-digit amounts.

Arcanol – the result of many years of experience and research

High-performance rolling bearings have been part of Schaeffler’s core expertise for decades. Naturally, we also place the same high demands on our lubricants. Many years of intensive research finally resulted in a comprehensive portfolio of high-grade, special bearing lubricants. Each batch is subject to extensive testing upon delivery. Ensuring the highest quality is continuously achieved and can always be clearly documented. Our range continues to grow steadily, for example in environmental protection and sustainability, we are currently working on a biodegradable grease.

Choosing Arcanol will give you peace of mind and security as well as more performance and less costs.
