What are the oil lubrication methods for slewing bearings?

The slewing bearing needs to be lubricated during use and storage. The common lubrication methods are grease lubrication and oil lubrication. The medium for grease lubrication is grease, and the oil lubrication is lubricating oil. Then, for the turntable In terms of bearings, what are the benefits of using oil lubrication? What are the oil lubrication methods for slewing bearings? The following is a summary made by the editor for everyone, let’s take a look.

The benefits of oil lubrication for slewing bearings

The slewing bearing is lubricated by oil lubrication, which can achieve good cooling and cooling effects. This oil lubrication method is very suitable for bearings with relatively high operating temperatures. The viscosity of the lubricating oil used in the bearing is about 0.12 to 0.2cm/s. If the bearing load is high and the working temperature is high, choose a high-viscosity lubricating oil, and a rolling bearing with a fast speed is suitable for a low-viscosity lubricating oil. But it should also be noted that oil lubrication requires that the bearing must be kept in a good sealing state to avoid leakage of lubricating oil. In addition, oil lubrication requires a more complicated oil supply device, so you must pay more attention to the operation and use, and pay attention to the use and maintenance of the bearing.


The method of lubricating slewing bearing oil

1. Oil bath lubrication

Oil bath lubrication is a relatively common lubrication method. It is suitable for the lubrication of low and medium speed bearings. Imported bearings are partially immersed in the groove, and the lubricating oil is picked up by the rotating bearing parts and then flows back to the oil groove. The oil level should be slightly lower than The center of the lower rolling element.

2. Dripping oil lubrication

Drip lubrication is suitable for imported bearing parts that require a quantitative supply of lubricating oil. The amount of dripping oil is generally one drop every 3-8 seconds. Excessive oil volume will cause the bearing temperature to increase.

3. Circulating oil lubrication

Use an oil pump to deliver the filtered oil to the bearing components, and then filter and cool the lubricating oil after passing through the bearing for use. Because circulating oil can take away a certain amount of heat and cool the bearing, this method is suitable for bearing parts with higher speeds.

4. Spray lubrication

Dry compressed air is mixed with lubricating oil through a sprayer to form oil mist. Injecting into the bearing, the airflow can effectively cool the bearing and prevent the intrusion of impurities. This method is suitable for the lubrication of high-speed and high-temperature bearing components.

5. Jet lubrication

Use an oil pump to inject high-pressure oil into the bearing through a nozzle, and the oil injected into the bearing flows into the oil groove through the other end of the bearing. Imported bearings have higher rated load, lower noise, greatly reduce warranty costs, increase machine running time and other advantages; when distinguishing the authenticity of such imported bearings, you can touch the steel stamp on the bearing to make it faster and more efficient. Accurately distinguishing, this kind of steel seal will not feel tactile if you touch it with your hand, but you can feel the presence of the steel seal by gently touching it with your fingernail. When the bearing rotates at a high speed, the rolling elements and the cage also make the surrounding air form an airflow at a relatively high rotation speed. It is difficult to send the lubricating oil to the bearing by the general lubrication method. At this time, the lubricating oil must be sprayed by high-pressure injection. In the bearing, the position of the nozzle should be placed between the inner ring and the center of the cage.

The above is the slewing bearing manufacturer’s summary of the oil lubrication methods for slewing bearings, the benefits of slewing bearing oil lubrication and all the common methods. We understand that oil lubrication can help the bearing achieve a good cooling and cooling effect. The oil lubrication methods include oil bath lubrication, drip lubrication, circulating oil lubrication, spray lubrication, jet lubrication, etc. You can choose according to your own reagent needs
