Principle of Prolonging and IKO Rolling Bearing Stable Operation

Principle of Prolonging and IKO Rolling Bearing Stable Operation

  • 1. The clearance should be appropriate. If it is too large, there will be impact. If it is too small, there will be poor lubrication and tile burning.Principle of Prolonging and IKO Rolling Bearing Stable Operation
  • 2. The surface quality and geometry of rolling bearing and journal shall be strictly guaranteed.
  • 3. Improve lubrication quality, control oil pressure, temperature and flow, and strengthen oil filtration.
  • 4. It is disadvantageous to control the temperature state of diesel engine and work under the condition of supercooling and overheating. In cold weather, the diesel engine shall be preheated before starting, and the crankshaft shall be turned by hand to make the oil enter.Principle of Prolonging and IKO Rolling Bearing Stable Operation
  • 5. Use fuel oil and lubricating oil that meet the requirements.
  •  Three principles for prolonging the use of IKO bearings
  • A. Choose IKO bearing model with high load capacity
  • When selecting bearings, the price of bearings should be taken into account, or rolling bearings with higher load capacity but more expensive should be used, or ordinary bearings should be used to prolong their service life. 
  • Bearings with high load capacity are adopted, such as cylindrical roller bearing with convexity, spherical roller bearing with symmetrical roller, reinforced tapered roller and ball type, ball with corrected ball groove bus, or IKO bearing of 70000cd series is used to replace deep groove (single row centripetal) ball. 
  • These bearings with high load capacity may have higher fatigue life due to improving stress distribution or large number of rolling elements.Principle of Prolonging and IKO Rolling Bearing Stable Operation

Select the appropriate bearing size

  • In order to select the appropriate size, the working load, speed and operating temperature of rolling bearing must be accurately calculated or verified. Load has a great impact on service life, so although it is difficult to measure the load, it should be measured as accurately as possible.
  •  When it is difficult to measure the load, measure the actual power consumed by the motor, calculate according to the transmission route and deduct the power loss along the way until the load is closer to the actual load.Principle of Prolonging and IKO Rolling Bearing Stable Operation
  •  If the calculated or measured load is too large, the expected fatigue life of IKO bearing must be reduced by a greater margin, which must be remedied. If the installation position allows, the bearing products with a larger size can be selected; 
  • If the radial dimension is limited, a wider rolling bearing should be selected when there is a wider bearing; If wider bearings cannot be used, they can be used with higher load carrying capacity.Principle of Prolonging and IKO Rolling Bearing Stable Operation

Select appropriate materials

  • When selecting the material of rolling bearing, its price should also be taken into account. When vacuum smelting or electroslag remelting steel has to be used, it should be noted that the lubrication conditions must be improved in order to double the expected fatigue life. 
  • Of course, the cost of selecting bearings made of this kind of high-quality steel is much more expensive than that of selecting bearings with high load capacity, but sometimes it must be considered for use when it is difficult to access and disassemble in machines, or IKO bearings used in operation machinery in mines and tunnels are extremely difficult to repair.Principle of Prolonging and IKO Rolling Bearing Stable Operation

Principle of Prolonging and IKO Rolling Bearing Stable Operation

  • Generally, if the oil-free bearing is used correctly, it can be used until the fatigue life is reached. However, there will be accidental and premature damage, which is not resistant to use. 
  • This early damage, as opposed to fatigue life, limits the use of quality known as failure or accident. Most of them are caused by careless installation, use and lubrication, foreign matters invading from the outside, and insufficient research on the thermal effects of shafts and shells.
  • As for the damage state of IKO bearing, for example, the clamping of the ring retaining edge of oil-free bearing can be considered as the reason.
  •  These reasons can also coincide with insufficient lubricant, unsuitable, defects of oil supply and drainage structure, invasion of foreign matters, bearing installation error and excessive deflection of shaft.
