Abstract : Some significant, but not outstanding, differences in wear were found when lithium 12-hydroxystearate but thickened mineral oil greases of the same composition, but different rates of oil separation, were tested at various loads in the Shell 4-Ball Wear Machine. Based on this decreased wear and other work that shows greases with higher soap concentrations having longer bearing performance lives, it is conceivable that wheel bearing performance superior to that using unbled grease could be attained at temperatures above 32 degrees F.
