Operating skills and coordination requirements for Stainless Steel Rod End Bearings

- Mar 22, 2019-

Where Stainless Steel Rod End Bearings are missing or where the press cannot be used, the end rod joint bearings can be mounted with the mounting sleeve and the small hammer during operation. The hammering force should be transmitted evenly to the entire circumference of the end face of the end rod joint bearing ring, so the hammered end face of the assembly casing should be made spherical.


The stainless steel rod end bearing is related to the force required to install the end rod joint bearing and the size of the joint bearing and the amount of interference. For medium or large joint bearings with large interference, the hot charging method is commonly used. Before hot loading, put the end rod joint bearing or the separable joint bearing ring into the fuel tank or special heater and heat evenly to 80-100 °C, not more than 100 °C.


Stainless steel rod end bearings require skilled operation skills to a certain extent. When the joint bearing is removed from the heating tank or the heater during operation, the oil track on the surface of the joint bearing should be wiped off immediately with a clean cloth. And attachments (not to use cotton yarn), then placed in front of the mating surface, pushing the joint bearing to the shoulder against the shoulder in one operation. Always tighten during the cooling process or tap the joint bearing with a small hammer through the fitting sleeve to make it tight. When installing the end rod joint bearing, the joint bearing should be slightly rotated to avoid the installation from tipping or jamming.


When the outer ring of the stainless steel rod end bearing and the housing hole are tightly fitted, the housing can be heated and then loaded into the joint bearing. When used, especially the joint bearing of light metal material may be due to the tight fitting process. The ring is pressed in and causes damage to the mating surface. In this case, the end rod joint bearing should be heated first.
