5 reasons to keep electric motors properly lubricated

It’s vital that electric motors are properly maintained if they’re to provide reliable service and consistent performance during their lifespan. Lubrication is an essential part of routine motor maintenance, and we’ve selected five reasons for keeping on top of greasing.

  • Lubrication reduces friction between the shaft and bearings
  • Greasing also helps to transfer heat away from hot spots, keeping the motor cool
  • Lubricant acts as a barrier which protects metal surfaces, helping to reduce corrosion
  • A coating of grease traps fragments of dirt and debris, keeping them from entering the motor
  • Inadequate greasing leads to excessive bearing wear, while too much lubrication can lead to overheating. Therefore, it’s essential to follow greasing guidelines carefully and keep a record for colleagues to refer to.

If you’re unsure about your motor’s greasing requirements and would like expert advice, call Gibbons on 01621 868138 or email info@gibbonsgroup.co.uk
