Lubrication | www.enggarena.net

Lubrication is a science of reducing friction and wear between two contacting surfaces, which have motion relative to each other, by inserting or introducing a substance, called lubricant between the contacting surfaces.
The lubricant may be either liquid, gas or semi-solid.

Basic Objectives of Lubrication :

  • To carry away frictional heat
  • To reduction wear
  • To reduce friction between two contacting surfaces
  • To carry away worn out particles
  • To protect surfaces against corrosion
  • To prevent entry of foreign particles like dirt and dust to the contact zone.
