Do I need to do anything special before using Krytox in bearings?
Before adding Krytox grease to a bearing, the bearing should be cleaned of all existing greases, oils, or preservative oils used during storage. If hydrocarbon oils are left in a bearing, the oils can form carbon deposits at high temperatures, which may accelerate bearing failure. Please request K-22116, “New Bearing Preparation with Krytox Performance Lubricants” for the
recommended cleaning and re-packing procedure, as well as guidance on how much grease to use and speed considerations.
