R2F Grease Tester
The R2F Grease Testing Machine evaluates grease performance by measuring the
wear of the rollers and the cage. In this test, significant wear will only
occur as a consequence of the inability of the grease to maintain a lubricant
film in the rolling and sliding contact during the full test period. The
grease is tested in two run-in bearings under constant radial load of 8340 N
at a speed of 1500 rpm for a period of 480 hours (20 days). Over the first 24
hours, no external heat is applied. The test is then continued for a period
19 days, where heat is applied to the bearing housings at a constant
temperature between 60 and 160°C. The test is stopped automatically if the
bearing temperature starts to rise more than 3°C above the preset test
temperature, due to increased bearing friction.
