Lubrication of Electrical and Mechanical Components in Electric Power Equipment presents an analysis of multiple applications of lubricants in the power industry for both electrical and mechanical parts. One of the key features of this book includes a look at the use of lubricants for surfaces of electrical and mechanical parts protection from mechanical wear and friction. Also included are examples of degradation due to fretting, as well as corrosion protection when lubricant is a barrier between metallic surfaces and atmospheric pollutants.
This book analyzes the effects of chemical composition and consistency (fluids, greases, solid lubricants) and the durability of lubricants in regard to various types of contacts and mechanical parts material, design and load. Focused on the importance of carefully choosing the lubricants to maintain a stable contact resistance; preserve the physical integrity of the contact surface; and extend the useful life of mechanical parts, such as bearings, the author presents an exhaustive list of lubricants manufacturers and products recommended for use in the electrical industry.
