Title: RESEARCH IN HIGH TEMPERATURE BEARING LUBRICATION IN THE ABSENCE OF LIQUID LUBRICANTS. Final Report for November 1, 1956 through December 31, 1957

Abstract

A method of operating rolling contact bearings at high temperatures without using conventional liquid lubricants has been evolved. This method employs a protective atmosphere'' around the bearing. The atmosphere has two functions, the prevention of the formation of abrasive oxides at the bearing surfaces and the formation, by reaction with the bearing surfaces, of antiscuffing films to prevent catastrophic wear at slidiag contacts. Factors involved in the selection of atmosphere compositions and hearing materials for use with this method or operation are discussed. Test operations which have demonstrated the performance of this system at various temperatures from 600 to 1000 deg F are described. (auth)
