- Aug 01, 2018-

With regard to the installation and removal of rod end joint bearings, it is usually required to use special tools for operation. If the press is missing or unable to use the press, the rod end joint bearing can be mounted with the fitting sleeve and the small hammer. At the same time, the hammering force is required to be uniformly transmitted to the entire circumference of the end face of the end rod joint bearing ring, so that the end face of the assembly sleeve hammered should be made spherical.


Secondly, during the installation process, the amount of force applied should be determined in conjunction with the size of the rod end bearing to be installed and the interference fit. A method of hot charging for medium or large joint bearings with large interference. Before hot charging, put the bearing or the separable joint bearing ring into the fuel tank or special heater and heat it evenly to 80-100 °C, not more than 100 °C.


In addition, the staff should have skilled operational skills during installation and disassembly. When the rod end joint bearing is removed from the heating tank or heater, immediately wipe off the oil traces and attachments on the surface of the joint bearing with a clean cloth, and then place it in front of the mating surface to push the joint bearing in one operation. To the position where the shoulder is held, always tighten during the cooling process to avoid the installation from tipping or jamming.
