Space-flight experience and life test performance of a synthetic hydrocarbon lubricant
Author and Affiliation:
Bialke, Bill(Ithaco, Inc., Ithaca, NY, United States)
Abstract: An alternative wet lubricant known as Pennzane(TM) SHF X-2000 is recommended for some spaceflight bearing systems. The performance characteristics between Pennzane(TM) SHF X-2000 and Bray 815Z were compared. The life tests showed excellent performances with continuous operation approaching three years in conservative operating environments. Space flight performance data are provided for several of the tested mechanisms which are operating in-orbit since February 1994.
