Electric motors convert electricity into rotary mechanical power and literally drive industry. To operate effectively, efficiently and dependably, these motors must be lubricated properly. The proper motor lubricant can extend service life and reduce friction and noise, which directly contributes to motor downsizing and cost savings. Reliable motor lubrication depends on the amount of lubricant used, as well as contamination potential and compatibility with the motor components and other lubricants.
Electric motors require lubricants that maintain their consistency and lubricating properties over a wide temperature range. Many applications also demand low-bleed and nonconductive lubricants.
Whether you’re designing or maintaining industrial motors or looking for solutions to perform in automotive applications, MOLYKOTE® delivers consistent electric-motor lubrication performance through our specialty Smart Lubrication™ solutions.
