Summary

  1. 1.

    A method has been developed and used in the experimental study of the thermophysical properties of lubricating greases of different types and of the dispersion media used in these greases.

     
  2. 2.

    It has been shown that the thermal conductivity, heat capacity, and density of the greases are greater than those of the dispersion media. The relative values of thermal conductivity and heat capacity are determined mainly by the concentration of thickening agent; the properties of the thickening agent and the dispersion play a considerably smaller role.

     
  3. 3.

    Interpolation formulas have been proposed for calculating the thermophysical properties of greases.
