Paper: Rolling bearing solutions for mixed-media and media lubrication in compressors or pumps

This paper is mainly focusing on bearing and lubrication technologies that enable robust application performance under thin film conditions that, for instance, became important due to the introduction of new low GWP refrigerants, low speed condition in connection with VSD, the increased use of natural gases with acidic content, or vacuum and hot gas applications, and so bearing tribology R&D was challenged to cope with heavily diluted oils or (liquid) gases and corrosive media.
