VIIPLUS solves the problem of bearing life for you

How to extend the life of bearings

The constantly changing demand also puts forward higher requirements for the quality of bearings.Bearing life is significantly shortened under harsh conditions, which will increase costs and reduce project safety.How to prolong the life of bearings has become a difficult problem for engineers in various fields.

Bearing is an important part in modern industry, its main function is to support the mechanical rotating body, reduce the friction coefficient in the process of movement, and ensure the accuracy of rotation.

Factors affecting bearing life

Under a certain load, the number of revolutions or hours experienced by the bearing before pitting is called the bearing life.The main factors affecting bearing life are as follows:

I. Material characteristics;It is mainly restricted by the hardness, strength, toughness, wear resistance, corrosion resistance and internal stress state of steel.

II. Improper installation (about 16%)

1. When installing, the force is too strong, and hammering the bearing is the biggest damage to the bearing.

2. The installation deviation or the bearing position is not installed, resulting in too small bearing clearance.

III, pollution will also lead to premature bearing damage, pollution refers to dust, metal chips and other into the bearing interior.

IIII, according to the investigation, poor lubrication is one of the main reasons for premature damage of bearings.Including not filling lubricant or lubricating oil in time;Lubricant or lubricating oil is not filled in place;Improper selection of lubricants or lubricants;Incorrect lubrication and so on.

IIIII. Fatigue damage is a common damage mode of bearings.The common causes of fatigue damage may be: long-term overload operation of bearings;Not timely maintenance;Improper maintenance;Equipment aging and so on.

How to extend bearing life

1. Choose appropriate or professional bearing installation tools, and use special instruments to test after installation.

2. It is best not to open the packing of bearings before use;Keep the installation environment clean during installation, and clean the bearings to be used;Enhance the sealing device of the bearing.

3. Choose the right lubricant or lubricating oil and use the right lubrication filling method.It is worth mentioning that if you choose VIIPLUS non-lubricating bearing products, you can perfectly avoid such problems and protect your production efficiency and cost.
