Today's post is all about:
Cleaning and re-lubrication of
open, shielded and sealed ball and roller bearings.
We offer a full re-lubrication service for either our own miniature bearings or customer supplied bearings. We have many years of experience in degreasing and re-lubricating stainless steel, chrome steel, and hybrid bearings with customer specified lubricants. Every day, our customers require specialised lubricants designed to handle everything from food safe applications to low torque conditions. We regularly supply our bearings or your own bearings with:
dampening greases, dry lubricants, food safe greases, high temperature lubricants, low temperature lubricant, slow torque lubricants, molybdenum disulphide coating, perfluorinated lubricants, radiation-resistant lubricants, vacuum lubricants, waterproof greases.
Manufacturers are rarely interested in small volumes of bearings with non-standard lubricants so we have equipped ourselves with the facilities to help you. We have a range of degreasing methods to clean all bearing surfaces before using proprietary lubrication equipment to apply your choice of oil, grease, a dry lubricant or return the bearing with no lubricant applied at all. Whether you need a specialist to relubricate high-spec instrumentation bearings or find a cost-effective way to lubricate deep groove ball bearings, we have the equipment you need. We are able to check the quantity of grease in each bearing so we can provide very accurate grease amounts whether you require a low, normal or high grease fill.
As a trusted supplier of miniature and stainless steel ball bearings in the UK, our experience with different types of customer-supplied bearings is comprehensive. We have the technical expertise to handle cylindrical and needle roller bearings to plain spherical bearings, along with corrosion resistant, thin section, electric motor bearings and miniature ball bearings from the UK and abroad. We have the equipment to relubricate not only open and rubber sealed bearings but also those bearings with non-removable shields.
We can advise you on best choice of bearing lubricant for problem applications. If you are involved in testing or R&D, our in-house ultrasonic bearing degreasing and bearing re-lubrication facility enables us to supply bearing samples at short notice. If you are experiencing lubrication related problems or you want to know more about our bearing relube capabilities, please ask.
We keep a wide stock of oils and greases We have no minimum quantity so if you require one bearing or several hundred bearings with a lubricant of your choice, talk to us.
