Electric motor bearing re-lubrication is a critical aspect of maintenance. As with other high speed bearing applications, it is important for re-lubrication practices to take the risks associated with over-lubrication into account while providing sufficient re-lubrication to deliver long bearing service life.

The combination of the following practices can provide a lubrication program which avoids over-lubrication and lubricant starvation:

> Add small amounts of grease at short time intervals using an automatic lubricator which provides accurate dispensing rates, independent of temperature.

> Re-lubricate when the motor is in operation.

> Always ensure that spent grease can escape the bearing housing via well maintained grease escape holes or collection traps.

> Do not use powered grease guns.
