how to manage hot bearings in your plant lubrication

Lubricant cleanliness refers to the absence of contamination 1 Microscopic particles are the most harmful form of contamination in lubricants They can irreversibly damage gear and bearing surfaces shorten the service life of equipment and cause unexpected breakdowns 1-4 The concentration of particles in new "as supplied" drums of lubricant can differ by as much as a factor of 1 000 That's where our design ideas and systematic improvements come in They cover all components – from the bearings and their chocks to the roll necks and oil lubrication systems Our modernizations ensure your bearings achieve the high standards of occupational safety reliability and cost-effectiveness to guarantee your success

How to Prevent Bearings from Overheating

If the viscosity of the oil at the bearing operating temperature is two times or more than the minimum operating viscosity (from the bearing manufacturer) then you should reconsider the lubricant selection especially for bearings operating near 3 600 rpm Churning and overheating both contribute to the loss of oil in the grease This shortens

Nov 14 2016The plant's challenge: Identify the right balance of monitoring and lubrication The plant's geographic location is hot and humid yet blinding sand storms are known to occur at times In this plant a high-pressure Carbamate Pump and a Booster Pump were connected to the shaft ends of a double-ended electric motor

Gearbox lubrication - oil analysis In many cases gear and bearing problems result from contaminated or insufficient oil Oil filter contamination could cause bearing failure and gear tooth damage Sometimes insufficient lubrication causes metal-to-metal contact with abrasive wear as a result

The bearing is not under load and there is no additional internal clearance loss due to the interference fit when the bearing is mounted This is why you never rotate a hot bearing The hot bearing should go directly from the heater to the shaft and should not to be rotated until thermal equilibrium is restored

Industrial Greases

By ensuring longer lubrication intervals and fewer bearing failures Almasol High Temperature Lubricant helps contribute to increased production and a healthier bottom line Typical Applications: High-temperature applications including: asphalt plants brick/ceramic kilns exhaust fans kiln car bearings lime kilns oven conveyors pellet

Jan 23 2019Proper lubrication of compressors and centrifugal pumps is a subject that's both vast and of great importance Because uninterrupted long-term operation is especially critical in oil refineries and petrochemical plants we'll focus attention here on issues observed in fluid machines such as gas compressors and centrifugal process pumps in this specific industry sector

Understanding basic safety precautions when working with lubricants is important for any employee working in an industrial plant and especially gear-manufacturing operations Below are a series of guidelines that can help lubrication specialists recognize the potential hazards associated with handling storing and using petroleum products

Dec 17 2011Effective lubrication monitoring and testing as an integral part of an overall lubricant management program can tell much about machinery conditions and potential problems The entire process can be undermined however if the correct lubricant for

Nov 10 2015Lubrication Bearings and Oil Seals Lubrication Of all the important items of maintenance lubrication ranks as one of the highest Incorrect oiling or greasing will produce as disastrous results as any other type of motor mistreatment Excess oil may get into the windings where it will collect dust and other foreign matter

4 Types of Lubricants and How to Use Them

Sep 15 2016Uses: Hinges bearings tool maintenance sharpening blades Types: Motor oil 3-in-1 oil sewing machine oil bar and chain oil Use When: • You want to lubricate something without the resistance inherent in using grease • You need lubrication to wick into a small space without having to take anything apart Don't Use When:

May 26 2005Well finally I can voice an opinion on this We have many of these in the plant I work in and am the one who gets to replace as needed I have been at the plant for over 4 years now and have tried a variety of lubes and have come to the conclusion

Mar 18 2003Most of the old machines I've seen with babbitt bearings have a cup that is filled with oil although these could have been added later Also some of those cups had a felt plug to help maintain a slow feed of oil The bearing will wick the oil from the felt and extend the lubrication process In any case don't let the bearing run dry

Apr 25 2017Subsequent samples showed a steady increase in the reported silver peaking at 0 6 ppm Operating experience was reviewed at the plant and two sister plants that had experienced similar circumstances An inspection was performed and silver coated bearing material was identified in the engine crankcase sump below the affected powerpack

The QIBR Company a global leader in bearing and steel technology understands the importance of friction management The QIBR line of application- and environment-specific lubricants have been developed by leveraging our knowledge of tribology and anti-friction bearings and how these two elements affect overall system performance
