Of that 20% (103EJ) is used to overcome friction and 3% (16EJ) is used to remanufacture worn parts and spare equipment due to wear and wear-related failures." Holmberg, Erdemir (2017) Friction "Energy losses due to friction and wear could potentially be reduced by 40% in the long term (15 years) and 18% in the short term (8 years). On a global scale these savings would amount to 1.4% of the GDP annually and 8.7% of the total energy consumption in the long term." Holmberg, Erdemir (2017) Friction "If the lubrication system and the machine as a whole are kept clean, correctly dimensioned rolling bearings will have all local stresses lower than the endurance limit and thus, in principle, infinite life." SKF "Proper selection and placement of contamination control devices in a system to attain the targeted cleanliness eliminates (the root cause of) up to 80% of hydraulic system failures" Vickers Previous Next
