    Default Do you lubricate Ceramic bearings

    I am looking at replacing some high speed 24,000 RPM AC spindle bearings with some ceramic bearings.
    Do you grease ceramic bearings or run them dry?
    Cheers,
    Rod

    From a quick read it appears that they can be run without lubrication.
    It appears that this would be dependant on the application.
    Methods of lubrication if required seem to be Oil,Grease,Air.
