Improved lubrication saves energy

Abstract:
Recent nanotechnology research, which exam- ines molecular structure and the effects between two surfaces, has been useful for industries that use gears and bearings. Swan explains that if the surface texture of a gear or bearing is changed, friction can be reduced. The current research in this field attempts to understand the relationship between surfaces on the molecular level and create new bearings, for instance, with characteristics for the least amount of friction possible.

Research suggests that changing from mono- grade to multigrade hydraulic fluids in construction and mining equipment can result in significant energy savings. Energy and fuel- efficiency technologies available today are applied to mining, construction, and hydraulic machines.
