The essential factor in the lubrication of gearing, as with other mechanisms, is the maintenance of a fluid film between the surfaces of components with relative motion and mutual loading. By separating the surfaces in this way, there is a reduction in the degree of contact between the asperities on the mating parts. Inadequate separation leads to welding of the areas of contact, followed by tearing (scuffing) of the metal surfaces and the virtual destruction of the gears.
