Bearing Lubrication at Low Temperatures
Where conventional lubricants cannot be applied for reasons of incompatibility with the working fluid at operational conditions of temperature and pressure, it has been found necessary to develop alternative methods, and “dry lubrication” using solid lubricants has been adopted for cryogenic applications, Components that lend themselves to this treatment are bearings and seals for rotating shafts and pistons and cylinders in reciprocating systems.
