Test your Lubricants before using them from Petro-Lubricant Testing Laboratories

Increasing the life span of gear couplings is totally dependent on the kind and amount of greasing one does to them. Gear couplings form an integral part of any machine and have to be maintained for a smooth and uninterrupted functioning of any machine. Its not only the frequency of the lubrication done and the amount of lubrication done; the quality of the lubricant is also a crucial factor that will make the machinery live long and function smoothly advices John Wintermute from Petro-Lubricant Testing Laboratories.


Petro-Lubricant Testing Laboratories has been a name to reckon with in the lubricant testing field. Both John Wintemute and Josiah Wintermute have helped this organization reach the heights of success where it has been able to set several benchmarks for the industry. Josiah Wintermute is of the view that gear couplings have their own importance in making our lives easy. Gear couplings are responsible for sending more power per inch of diameter than any other coupling. Gear Couplings have another really important characteristic; even if they are wrongly installed. Compared to other couplings they are safe and robust.


While speaking on the lubrication of these gear couplings John Wintermute states that regular and proper lubrication of gear couplings will be of great help as the mating of the teeth (that form an integral part of the gear couplings and are the first to degenerate in the process of the friction generated) generate a force which is the main cause for the wiping out of the lubricant from the surface of these teeth that increase the chances of degeneration of the teeth and in turn the whole machinery.


Using grease is strongly advised against oil where one requires the localization of the lubricant. Grease does not drip and will remain where it is applied which is not the case with oil. Oil as a liquid may spill to other parts of the machinery and in case wiring is present no good will be done instead something that is not rally beneficial to the machine may occur like a short circuit or damage to the electrical parts of the machinery.


Thus it of utmost importance to check the role of grease and oil. Although both of them need to be used at times but one needs to compare the cost effectiveness along with the usage. Checking the quality of the lubricant really matters in times when you are dealing with high end equipment or you are dealing with a large quantity of lubricant. Petro-Lubricant Testing Laboratories offers you the best services for all your testing needs.
