Grease Lubricated Electric Motor
Again, these are usually rolling element bearing applications – a strength for vibration analysis. Traditionally, I would rely solely on vibration analysis to monitor a motor’s mechanical condition. However, with the advent of “Grease Thief” sampling devices, we can now extract a reasonably representative sample of grease to detect mixing, grease degradation and wear particles.
