Generally speaking, there are 5 methods to extend the service life of Timken bearings as belows:
1.Bearing installation. If correctly install Timken bearings, will affect it precision, long life, and performance. Therefore, design and assembly department should fully research for the installation of the bearing. It should be installed according to the operation standards and the items of operation standards usually are as follows:
(1) clean bearing and related bearing parts;
(2) check the size of the associated parts and precision processing situation;
(4) check the installed bearing;
(5) supply lubricant.
2.The accurating and straightening. After installed theTimken bearings, if not careful it's accurating and straightening, it may lead bearing to suffer other load , friction and vibration. These may accelerate fatigue and reduce the service life of the bearings, and could damage other machine parts using period. In addition, the vibration and friction increasing may greatly increase the energy consumption and premature failure risk.
