How to Maintain Stainless Steel Bearing to Prolong Its Life

Source: FAG bearings  Tags: News

In the current industrial production, more and more bearings are made of stainless steel, which is not only because it is not easy to rust and washes, but also because it has a high heat resistance and excellent corrosion resistance. Therefore, in such a case, how to better maintain the stainless steel bearing to extend life is the concern of many business managers.

  Regular maintenance

The maintenance of stainless steel bearing is not a work of the moment, and timing law is the critical point. On the one hand, we should check carefully to keep the stainless steel bearing clean and clean the surface of the stainless steel bearing, which is what we must do before checking the taking, and then dismantle the parts around the bearing. Also, the oil seal is a very fragile part, which requires special care during inspection and disassembly, and do not use too much force to avoid damage to the elements. Carefully check the oil seal of the bearing and its surrounding regions. If the bearing has shown adverse symptoms, it must be replaced. Otherwise, the cloud shape of the bearing will be abnormal, and the equipment will be shut down.

  Ensure good lubrication

Lubrication is essential, not only for stainless steel bearings but also for all bearings. Please note, however, that too much grease should not be applied to stainless steel bearings. Also, special attention should be paid to the lubrication method of stainless steel bearing due to its characteristics. 

When the bearing runs with a uniform and continuous "hissing" sound, the sound is generated by the rolling element rotating in the inner and outer rings, including the irregular metal vibration sound unrelated to the rotation speed. Generally speaking, the amount of fat added is not enough and should be supplemented.

When the bearing makes a uniform and periodic "whirring" sound in the continuous "whirring" sound, the music is caused by the scars, grooves, and rust spots on the roller body and the inner and outer raceways. The period of the sound is proportional to the speed of the stainless steel bearing. It should be replaced.

When it makes a discontinuous "stem" sound, the sound is caused by the rupture of the cage or the inner and outer rings. The machine must be stopped and replaced immediately.

Finally, when a continuous screeching sound is made, it is caused by the inadequate lubrication of stainless steel bearing, dry friction caused by lack of oil, or the local contact of rolling body is too tight, such as the deviation of inner and outer raceways, and the close fit of inner and outer raceways. Check the imported bearing in time to find out the problem and deal with the problem.

Therefore, to ensure the effective operation of stainless steel bearings, the factory must accumulate experience and deal with these problems in time. Of course, the use of high-quality bearings is also a big way to prevent problems. Eric's bearing alliance, including IKO, SKF, FAG, and other major brands, is committed to providing customers with multiple bearing types, such as roller bearings, thrust bearings, etc., with reliable quality, high service efficiency, and the most sincere heart to do an excellent job with each set of bearings.
