2 CHESTERTON CAUSES OF BEARING FAILURE  Improper Lubrication - 43% –How Much, How Often, What Type, What Thickness, –What Properties are Important  Improper Mounting - 27% –Alignment, Work Area, General Practices, Inventory Control and Storage of Bearings  Other Lubrication Causes - 21% –Separation in Storage –Temperature Limit Exceeded –Moisture Contamination –Other Contamination  Fatigue - 9% Ultimate L10 Life Expectancy 64% of Bearing Failures are Lubrication Related IS Not The Whole Story In the Industry We Serve, Most Bearings Fail Due To Some Form of CORROSION

5 CHESTERTON EFFECT OF MOISTURE ON BEARING LIFE

6 CHESTERTON WATER WASHOUT RESISTANCE ASTM D1264 (DIN 51807) % Weight Loss of Grease Measured  Typical Grease (Lithium) - 5%  Water Resistant Grease <2%  Exceptional < 0.5% Water, 80 o C (175 o F) Grease Packed Bearings

7 % WATER IN OIL % REDUCTION IN FATIGUE LIFE   Mobil Oil evaluation on bearing fatigue life – 0.002% water reduces fatigue life 48% – 6.0% water reduces fatigue life 83% – 0.002% water is 1 drop of water in a quart of oil WATER CONTAMINATION REDUCES BEARING LIFE SIGNIFICANTLY

8 CHESTERTON ^30K^ Contacts Here FRETTED SHAFTS & SLEEVES  When shaft scoring occurs. A newly installed Lip Seal riding in same location on shaft will leak.  Water penetrates the bearing immediately…in all cases corrosion is RAPID and Bearing Life is reduced

9 CHESTERTON ^30K^ Contacts Here Fretted Shafts & Sleeves  When shaft scoring occurs. A newly installed Lip Seal riding in same location on shaft will leak. A SpediSleve Seal is often used.  While an improvement, the seal eventually fails, water penetrates the bearing immediately…in all cases corrosion is RAPID and Bearing Life is reduced

10 CHESTERTON ^30K^ Contacts Here Numerous Self-Fretting Bearing Seals Available Some are just metallic shields as OEM

13 CHESTERTON BALL AND ROLLER BEARING LUBRICATION (OIL AND GREASES)

14 CHESTERTON BALL AND ROLLER BEARING LUBRICATION (OIL AND GREASES)

15 CHESTERTON 615 HIGH TEMPERATURE GREASE  Very High Dropping Point, 300 o C ( 570 o F)  Temperature Range - 40 o C to 204 o C (- 40 o F to 400 o F)  Excellent Shear Resistance  Excellent Shock Load and Wear Properties  Very High Timken O.K. Load 29 kg (65 lbs.)  Good Compatibility with Popular Greases  Very High Water Washout Resistance, Below 1.6% Loss  Extreme Water Tolerance (Add 30% Water and Still Get 20 kg (45 lbs.) Timken)  Excellent Corrosion Resistance  Highest Rating Possible for Automotive Bearing and Chassis Lubrication, NLGI GC-LB

16 CHESTERTON 615 HTG #1  “Best in Class” Extreme Pressure Properties and Antiwear Characteristics  Exceptional Corrosion Protection  Excellent Oxidation Resistance, Long Grease Life  Excellent Resistance to Water Washout and Contamination  Easily Pumpable, Good in Central Lubrication Systems  Shear Stability and Grease Performance Maintained Over Wide Temperature Range  Measurably Longer Bearing Life  Temperature Range - 40 o C to 204 o C (- 40 o F to 400 o F)

17 CHESTERTON 615 HTG #1 General Rule of Thumb on Where to Use 615 # 1 Vs. the Standard 615:  Where Operating Speeds are Higher  Where Average Operating Temperatures are Lower  When Customer Wants to Use in Automatic Lubrication System See Pocket Guide for Reference on Specific Operating Conditions

18 CHESTERTON TEMPERATURE EFFECT ON GREASE LIFETIME “ Most Mineral-Oil-Based Greases (of Adequate Dropping Point) Will Operate Successfully to About 121 o C (250 o F). A Smaller Number Can Handle 150 o C (300 o F). A Few Mineral- Oil-Based Greases Can Operate to About 177 o C (350 o F).”  Relubrication Intervals - Rolling Element Bearings, 8 hours per Day 82 o C (180 o F) - 6 Months 104 o C (220 o F) - 3 Months 149 o C (300 o F) - 1 Month 193 o C (380 o F) - 1 Week 238 o C (460 o F) - 1 Day Source: NLGI, Lubricating Grease Guide

19 CHESTERTON LUBRI-CUP ®  Demand Feed System - Patented Metering System, Slowly Feeds Grease Only as Needed  Prevents Over or Under Filling of Bearings –Eliminates Cause of Over 40% of Bearing Failures  Low Feed Pressure Prevents Bearing Seal Failure  Time Interval for Relubrication Increased by 6x  Reduces Labor Cost to Regrease by Over 80%  Can Be Mounted at Any Angle  Transparent Grease Reservoir - Easy to See Grease Level  Easy to Refill in Place

23 CHESTERTON 615 Additive Plating Technology 615 smoothes out surface roughness, reduces wear and vibration. Extends bearing life.

24 CHESTERTON 615 Additive Plating Technology

25 CHESTERTON 615 HTG – Technology Overview Chesterton's 615 is formulated using a surplus of Lubricity, EP and Anti-Wear additives, blended into a highly refined G III base oil, and thickened with a metallic organo- sulfonate complex. The resulting grease is "Best in Class" with respect to EP, Lubricity, Corrosion & Water Resistance. Unlike conventional Aluminum, Calcium, & Lithium soap and complexed thickeners, Chesterton 615 is immune to hydrolysis or water breakdown. The grease remains functional even in heavy water contaminated bearings and equipment. Chesterton's 615, with QBT (Quiet Bearing Technology) uses state of the art tribological technology to reduce vibration and ultra-sonic bearing noise. Proprietary polar and non-polar additives and thickener chemically fuse to the metal surfaces filling in asperities to form a "wear shield" on the metal surfaces. This fusion of lubricating additives and thickeners to the molecular surface of the metal, protects the bearings from WEAR, PRESSURE and WATER CORROSION.
