To consider the anti-rust treatment characteristics of grease, vegetable oils used in rolling bearings must have the actual effect of anti-rust treatment. The best anti-rust oil is insoluble water. Vegetable oils should have excellent adhesion and can produce a layer of oil slick on the surface of stainless steel sheets.
2. Considering the Mechanical Stability of Lubricating Oil
Oil will soften during mechanical processing, leading to leakage. Normally, oil will be thrown from the bearing seat to the bearing. If the mechanical stability of oil is not enough, the structure of oil soap will be mechanically disintegrated during operation, causing oil to be destroyed, thus losing lubrication.
3. Oil Seals Considering Lubricating Oil
Oil seal is a necessary barrier to protect bearings and lubricants from external pollution. During the operation of bearings, no matter sundries or moisture can penetrate into bearings to prevent damage.
Correct installation and maintenance is an important factor for the longest service life of bearings. At the same time, attention must be paid to the cleanliness of bearings, the correctness of bearing selection and the selection of appropriate installation and maintenance tools. In addition, bearings must be prevented from contamination by pollutants and moisture, and ensure correct installation and lubrication. Period and even special maintenance play the same and important role.
4. Consider the mixing of lubricants
Never mix incompatible oils. If two incompatible oils are used together, their consistency will usually soften and eventually the bearing may be damaged due to the easy loss of grease. If you do not know which kind of grease the bearing used to be, you must thoroughly remove the old grease inside and outside the bearing before adding new grease.
