Eric bearing Limited has established partnerships with fag bearing distributors around the world. As a fag bearing distributor, we recommend the reasonable use of FAG roller bearings to do their lubrication work. How to do the lubrication of FAG roller bearings, Eric bearing gives you the following suggestions.
When purchasing grease for FAG roller bearings, the temperature range during use is a factor we must consider. Grease has a specific temperature range, and different fats have different temperature ranges. The components of the fat are base oil, thickener, and additives. The operating temperature of the fat is also related to these three components. For a specific type of lubricant, the manufacturer will give a maximum use temperature and a minimum use temperature. The user should remember that when selecting, the user needs to consider the maximum and minimum temperature of the lubricating part (generally the minimum temperature at startup).
The choice of lubricants and lubrication methods for FAG roller bearings is related to the type, size, and operating conditions of the bearings. Generally, rolling bearings are lubricated with grease or oil, and reliable lubrication can also be used under particular conditions. Among grease lubrication and oil lubrication, grease lubrication is the most used, and about 80% of rolling bearings are greased.
FAG roller bearings are lubricated with grease, which can simplify the surrounding structure of the bearing. With the improvement of the quality of oil, it has been widely used. When using grease lubrication, the key is to choose a grease suitable for the operating conditions, but the amount of filling in the bearing and the bearing seat also has a significant impact on the temperature rise and torque of the bearing, so it should also pay sufficient attention. The choice of lubricants and lubrication methods of rolling bearings is related to the type, size, and operating conditions of the bearings. Generally, rolling bearings are lubricated with grease or oil, and reliable lubrication can also be used under particular conditions. Among grease lubrication and oil lubrication, grease lubrication is the most used, and about 80% of rolling bearings are greased.
FAG roller bearings should be filled with sufficient grease, and the oil should also be fed into the cage guide surface and other parts. To use the net volume of the space in the bearing housing except the shaft and the bearing, fill the grease according to the relationship between the bearing speed and the limit speed listed in the comprehensive catalog: when the limit speed does not exceed 50%, the filling amount should reach 1 / 2 ~ 2/3. Otherwise, it should be 1/3 ~ 1/2 of the net space volume. That is to say, for the case of high rotation speed, the filling amount of grease should be relatively small. In some cases, factors such as reducing frictional torque and preventing heat generation can be considered to reduce the filling amount. Also, ultra-low-speed bearings are almost filled because of the need to improve dust and water resistance. In determining the appropriate filling amount, the space volume of the bearing seat and each set of bearings must be grasped.
The reasonable use of FAG roller bearings in use is the primary method of extending its life. The most important reason to use bearings is to do an excellent job of bearing lubrication. In order to achieve the best bearing lubrication, it is essential to choose the grease. Generally speaking, the lubrication plan of a bearing is based on time. Equipment suppliers often develop lubrication plans based on operating hours. Also, equipment suppliers often add guidance on the amount of lubricant during their maintenance planning process. For workers, short-term oil changes are widespread, and often more grease is added.
