In the last article, we discussed how SKF Rating Life calculations can be used to estimate bearing life more precisely, and offered some strategies for bearing life improvement. We introduced the concept of the viscosity ratio, kappa. This article will more fully explore how to choose the proper lubricant viscosity for rolling element bearings.
