If operating instructions are sup-plied with the products, they must be read and followed.Not all lubricants are suitable for use in centralized lubrication systems. SKF does offer an inspection service to test customer supplied lubricant to deter-mine if it can be used in a centralized system. SKF lubrication systems or their components are not approved for use with gases, liquefied gases, pres-surized gases in solution and fluids with a vapor pressure exceeding normal atmospheric pressure (1013 mbars) by more than 0.5 bar at their maximum permissible temperature.Hazardous materials of any kind, especially the materials classified as hazardous by European Community Directive EC 67/548/EEC, Article 2, Par. 2, may only be used to fill SKF centralized lubrication systems and compon-ents and delivered and/or distributed with the same after consulting with and receiving written approval from SKF.
