Extend the service life of the rod end joint bearing maintenance methods

- Dec 25, 2017-

After the rod end bearing is installed, the rod end joint bearing may be subjected to additional load, friction and vibration without careful alignment and alignment. After being affected by these factors, it will accelerate its fatigue wear, but also shorten its service life.


More seriously, these additional vibrations and friction will greatly increase energy consumption and premature failure of the rod end bearings. Therefore, in order to give full play to its own excellent performance, to maintain long-term stable operation, then after installation, but also need to be inspected, and regular maintenance. Early detection of failure to solve the hidden dangers as soon as possible.


For example, in the use of the process, we must learn to check and judge skills. This helps to correctly determine whether the removed rod end bearings can be reused. In the inspection, it is mainly for its dimensional accuracy, rotation accuracy, internal clearance and other inspection, but also pay attention to the mating surface, raceway, cage and seals and other components to be checked.


As a user, we also need to be well monitored during use. This includes monitoring of basic external conditions of rod end bearings such as temperature, vibration and noise measurements. These contents can well reflect the potential problems of bearing abnormalities, so as to avoid unexpected accidents in time, enable the production plan to be realized, and improve the factory productivity and efficiency.


In addition to the above, lubrication and care are also required when using rod end bearings. Lubricants for bearings can be divided into grease and oil lubrication. In order to make the rod end joint bearing function better, users need to select the appropriate lubrication method according to the specific conditions of use and environment.
