Q13. What bearing grease is the "best?"
Every grease has strengths and weaknesses in its performance and consequential monetary costs. For example, high temperature greases typically can't handle high loads very well. "Quiet" greases may break down at high temperatures. Additives have benefits but some drawbacks too. So there is no single best grease for bearings; it really comes down to the application and what characteristics are most important (and which are less).
The tribologists at AST Bearings can help you select the best bearing grease (or oil) for your application. More about bearing lubrication can be found on our website:
