Use of other greases
If greases other than those named on the lubricant plate are used, it cannot be guaranteed
that they are compatible with the complete system.
● If you use greases that satisfy only the minimum requirements of DIN 51825 or ISO 6743-9,
● If in doubt, consult the manufacturer.
Recommended greases for roller bearings
For standard applications, the following high-quality greases are recommended for roller
bearings for vertical and horizontal motor constructions due to their technical properties:
For motors of horizontal construction you can alternatively use greases with NLGI class 2.
However, this reduces the lubrication interval by 20%.

then reduce the lubrication intervals by half or adapt them as appropriate.
