Calculations are central to precise lubrication practices, and to that end, AMRRI has developed the intuitive and low-cost LubeCoach, a device that can help assign the correct volume and frequency to grease-lubricated element bearings. LubeCoach can be used by the lubrication engineer, planner, or reliability leader to improve greatly enhance bearing, lubricant, and labor performance. The device, a circulator calculator, incorporates the calculations into a small but representative collection of the most common bearing operating conditions.

In addition to the Manual Circular Calculator (shown here) and the electronic Excel version, LubeCoach is now available as an iPhone app.
