The increasing mechanization and efficiency of iron and steel production plant has brought with it the necessity for increased attention to lubrication problems and the selection of suitable lubricants. The substitution of enclosed gears and forced lubrication circuits for the old open gears, of ball and roller bearings for plain bearings, and the considerably increased speed at which all machinery is now expected to work, are instances of modern developments, which require the designer and engineer to know, not only the material characteristics of the lubricants employed, but also their lubricating qualities and suitability for the particular purpose.
