Adequate lubrication is an essential element to the housed unit bearing life. Use below table as a suggested initial point of reference. Relubrication frequency and quantity intervals are best determined through experience for each application, based on types of service, which may differ from the suggestions in the table. When the housed unit is not in operation for an extended period of time, grease should be added to prevent corrosion. Table 46 shows general lubrication suggested starting points only. Please read the entire installation instructions prior to using these tables. Applications should be regularly reviewed and lubrication amounts and intervals modified as needed to ensure best results.
