The article "Gear Wear Caused By Contaminated Oils" appeared in the September/October 1996 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
The diagnosis and prevention of gear tooth and bearing wear requires the discovery and understanding of the particular mechanism of wear, which in turn indicates the best method of prevention. Because a gearbox is a tribologically dependent mechanism, some understanding of gear and bearing tribology is essential for this process. Tribology is the general term for the study and practice of lubrication, friction and wear. If tribology is neglected or considered insignificant, poor reliability and short life will result.

Keywords
lubrication, tribology, failure, wear, contamination, oil, contaminated oil, oils
