Spherical bearings how to maintain?

- Jan 05, 2018-

Usually, spherical bearings will be used preferentially in agricultural machinery, transportation systems and construction machinery and equipment for the equipment and parts of the structure of the more simple job requirements. From the application to analyze, in fact, spherical bearings are mainly used to bear the radial load mainly radial and axial joint load, and therefore will rarely be subjected to axial load alone.


In the installation, people usually spherical bearings are installed inner ring or outer ring. It should be noted that, in the installation of this bearing, the shaft may not appear relative to the shell tilt problem. This is because additional radial force will be generated under radial load. In comparison, the size of this bearing axial clearance, the bearing will be able to work have a more important impact.


If the axial clearance is relatively small, then the use of spherical bearings, the temperature rise will be more obvious. If the axial clearance is too large, then easily lead to bearing damage. Therefore, during installation and use, be sure to pay close attention to its axial clearance. If necessary, pre-interference mounting can be used to increase the rigidity of the bearing.


During use, if you want to give full play to the role of spherical bearings, then users need regular checks, this is mainly to detect faults in time, can be dealt with as soon as possible in order to be prepared to take preventive measures. This will have a very good effect on improving productivity and economy. When it is dismantled for inspection, it should be photographed to make a good appearance record. Then check the amount of remaining lubricant, sample the lubricant, and then clean the bearings.


It should be noted that, after cleaning, you need to immediately apply a layer of cloth bearing anti-rust oil or rust grease. This is mainly to better protect the spherical bearings, to make their life longer.
