Avoid the three common mistakes of bearing lubrication.

Mistake No.1: calendar-based lubrication
There are many parameters influencing equipment's need for grease (load, environment, temperature, etc.). It is crucial that all these factors are considered, not just a "timing" component based on a theoretical calculation.

Mistake No.2: over and under greasing
The second mistake to be avoided at all costs is to use too much or too little lubricant. Both actions lead to wear or premature breakage of the bearing, in the first case because of elevated temperature and friction, the second through metal-to-metal contact. Extended under-lubrication will cause the bearing to seize, and may lead to even more serious machinery damage.

Mistake No.3: using ultrasound solely in listening mode
Simply listening, without taking measurements and recordings, is certainly too subjective, and cannot be recommended. Operator hearing varies, with significant risk of recording transcription errors (measurement, grease type, etc.). Only comparative analysis of the status of the bearing, before and after greasing, is truly objective.
