Bearing use precautions:
Rolling bearings are precision components and their use must be carried out with care. No matter how high-performance bearings are used, if not used properly, the expected high performance will not be achieved. The precautions for the use of the bearing are as follows:
First, keep the bearing and its surroundings clean
Even tiny dust that is invisible to the naked eye enters the bearing, which increases bearing wear, vibration and noise. The bearings and their surrounding accessories should be kept clean, especially dust and dirt, and the tools and environment must be kept clean.
Second, use the installation precautions
Strong stamping is not allowed. It is not allowed to directly hit the bearing with a hammer. It is not allowed to transmit pressure through the rolling elements.
Third, use appropriate and accurate installation tools
Try to use special tools and try to avoid using cloth and short fibers.
Fourth, to prevent bearing corrosion
When taking the bearing directly, it is necessary to wash off the sweat on the hand and apply it with high-quality mineral oil before handling. In the rainy season and summer, pay special attention to rust prevention. However, under certain special operating conditions, bearings can achieve longer life than traditional calculations, especially at light loads. These special operating conditions are when the rolling surface is effectively divided by a lubricating film and the surface damage caused by contaminants is limited. In fact, under ideal conditions, so-called permanent bearing life is possible.
