Oxygen will react with conventional lubrication technologies, leading to potential for explosion, fire and deterioration of the lubricant and component failure. Oxygen accelerates the decomposition of hydrocarbon lubricants. They rapidly form tars and varnish, causing bearings to fail. Oxygen will react with conventional additives, leading to degradation,reduced lubricant life, and a need for more frequent lubrication.
