Lubrication of Electric Motors

Lubrication of Electric Motors

Lubrication of Electric Motors

Can anyone help with motor relubrication standards/procedures?

RE: Lubrication of Electric Motors

Please, supply the nameplate data of the motor and bearing info.

RE: Lubrication of Electric Motors

I'm trying to set up a motor relubrication schedules for grease lubricated motors based on motor kW rating and Type of service. There is a chart in the CRC Handbook of Lubrication 1991 that I can go by for smaller size motors up to 250 kw but I want to expand it to cover up to 3000 kW. I'm also seeking info on suitable grease base oil viscosities and properties e.g synthetic, EP, etc.       

RE: Lubrication of Electric Motors

Please, notice that the electrical engineering covers this under Mechanical Construction, e.g. Reference
Fink D.G., Beaty H.W. "Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers," 14th Edition, McGraw-Hill, 2000
The grease base oil viscosities and properties will be more on the mechanical/chemical expertise side, in general. It may be worthwhile to post it there too to obtain appropriate information.
