Abstract : The report covers laboratory research on the use of sea water as a possible lubricant for bearing components of ocean vehicles and equipment. Focus is on the improved lubricating effect generated by sulfur compounds in contact with molybdenum surfaces. Results show sea water to exhibit the properties of a lubricating fluid for steel vs. molybdenum and bronze vs. molybdenum bearing combinations. (Author)
