Abstract

This article describes the main advantages of using grease as a lubricant rather than oil. It discusses the formulation, lubricating mechanism, degradation, and characterization of grease. The article describes the parameters that determine lifetime of grease, including low-temperature limit, low-temperature performance limit, high-temperature performance limit, and high-temperature limit. The article concludes with information on the practical use of grease as a lubricant reservoir.
