Function of Grease Review

The function of grease is to remain in contact with and lubricate moving surfaces without leaking out under gravity or centrifugal action, or be squeezed out under pressure. Its major practical requirement is that it retain its properties under shear at all temperatures that it is subjected to during use. At the same time, grease must be able to flow into the bearing through grease guns and from spot to spot in the lubricated machinery as needed, but must not add significantly to the power required to operate the machine, particularly at startup. (Boehringer 1992)
