Spherical rod end bearing applications and maintenance precautions

- May 21, 2018-

When the structural design is usually performed, the structural layout of the spherical rod end bearing is relatively compact to save space, and it is easy to disassemble and install. Currently, it is mainly used in mining, metallurgy, agriculture, chemical industry, transportation machinery, and the like. Although the basic performance of spherical rod end bearings is similar to that of deep groove ball bearings, it is generally simpler to use and install.


With the analysis of the current application situation, spherical rod end bearings can be seen in textile machines, die casting machines, molds, metallurgical casters, train supports, compressors, steel rolling equipment, mining machinery, and construction machinery. The figure. As a user, to fully use its performance, it is necessary not only to ensure correct installation, but also to provide correct and reasonable lubrication care.


Everyone should know that proper lubrication will isolate metal bearing surfaces such as rolling elements, bearing rings and bearing covers during the operation of spherical rod end bearings, thereby reducing friction, protecting metal parts and preventing contamination and impurities. effect. There are a variety of lubricants available on the market for different operating conditions. The correct choice of lubricant is important for extending the life of the bearings and equipment.


In other words, in order to ensure the longest service life, the spherical rod end bearings need to be properly lubricated. The lubrication cycle depends on the operating conditions, including temperature, speed, and environment. Only in pre-lubricated or sealed bearings, bearing life depends on the life of the lubricant. Remember that the lubricant must be properly stored according to the manufacturer's instructions, with particular attention to keeping the lubricant clean and free from contamination.


In addition to the above, it is also necessary to detect and maintain the operating state of the spherical rod end bearing. Under normal conditions, the operation of spherical rod end bearings is very reliable. As with all other important components in the machine, it also requires the user to perform regular inspections and maintenance.
