Lubricant Requirements for High Temperature Bearings 660072
Desirable lubricant properties for high temperature bearings are discussed from the bearing application engineering standpoint. This discussion is preceded by a short description of a jet engine lubrication system. The need for more realistic overall engine lubrication-system lubricant screening tests is stressed. Recommendations are made for incorporation of a thrust bearing rolling contact fatigue tester, an engine simulator, and more exhaustive engine evaluation in lubricant specifications.
