Swivel ball joint rod end installation and maintenance requirements

- Mar 14, 2018-

In order to ensure the normal operation of the host, the swivel ball joint rod end effectively sets a maintenance cycle and regular maintenance according to the requirements of the host and the bearing design theory and application experience. During the operation of the bearing, there must be sound, temperature and vibration.

The bearing of the rotating ball joint ends in the course of operation to stop the maintenance of the bearing. To a certain extent, the abnormal change of the bearing can be found through listening, touching, viewing, and using a bearing fault diagnosis instrument, and the rod end joint is discriminated according to the changed state. The bearing can be in normal working condition.

Swivel ball joint rod end installation and removal

Swivel ball joint rod end in the absence of or inaccessible presses, end fitting rod bearings can be mounted to a certain extent using mounting sleeves and hammers. The hammering force should be evenly transmitted to the entire circumference of the end face of the end-bearing rod bearing ring, so that the hammered end face of the fitting sleeve should be made into a spherical shape.

The force required to install the rod end joint bearing is related to the size of the joint bearing and the size of the fitting interference. For the medium-size or large-size joint bearing with large interference, the hot loading method is commonly used. Before hot loading, put the rod end joint bearing or the separable joint bearing ferrule in the tank or dedicated heater and heat evenly to 80-100°C. Do not exceed 100°C.

Swivel ball joint rod end require skillful operation during hot-loaded joint bearings. When the joint bearings are removed from the heating tank or heater, they need to be immediately wiped off the surface of the joint bearing with a clean cloth and Attachments (be careful not to use cotton yarn), and then placed in front of the mating surface, in a single operation, the joint bearing is pushed to the shoulder.
