Bearing Lubrication and Relubrication

Share This Page

Bearing failure modes are not common, however, lubrication degradation and contamination is one of the top causes. Highlighting the proper lubrication selection, application, and maintenance procedures are vital to achieving maximum performance from bearings. If the correct amount of lubrication is applied, this will lead to a thin film affect present during the operating of the rolling element bearing. This film essentially acts as a load-bearing protective film that separates any operating components. Another benefit to this is that any heat generated by friction will be mitigated, aiding in preventing excessive wear or premature failure.  


UNASIS engineers are experienced experts in the field of tribology and the principles of friction, lubrication, and wear. We can ensure that your bearings get the most effective lubrications for the application, standard greases do not account for specific applications so could hinder your bearing performance. ‘Shop bought’ bearings do not consider specific applications, so relubrication services could be required to gain the most out of your bearings.


  • Types of lubrication:
  •  Vacuum compatible lubrication
  • Food-grade lubrication
  • Low temperature lubrication
  • High temperature lubrication
  • Dry lubrications
  • Molybdenum disulphide coating
  • Tungsten disulphide coating
  • Graphite filled lubrication
  • XtrPoly coating
  • Nuclear compatible lubrication
  • Radiation-resistant lubrication


We offer both small and large volumes when typical manufacturers would not get involved. UNASIS can add effective value to your mechanical systems by enhancing your bearing through lubrication services.


UNASIS Bearings has a vast network of distributors to reach all corners of the globe. No matter where you are, you will get the best service to go along with the best bearings.
