Grease used on TIMKEN bearing must have antirust effect, antirusting agent should better insoluble in water. The grease should have good adhesion that can form a layer of oil film on the steel surface.Even though filled with water, the grease can also be maintained.
Grease will become soft in the mechanical working,which will lead to leakage. When there have vibration, the oil will be thrown into TIMKEN ball bearings from bearing seat. If the grease mechanical stability is insufficient, grease will continue to be thrown outside from the bearing, this will make mechanical disintegration of the soap structure and the using grease will be destroyed.
The oil seal is necessary to protect the bearing and lubricant from extraneous contamination. Debris or moisture can penetrate into the bearing, in case of damage. The correct installation and maintenance is important factors that help make the bearing play the longest service life. At the same time we must pay attention to the TIMKEN bearing's clean degree, bearing's correct selection and proper installation and maintenance tools. Bearings must be protected against pollution which come from pollutant and moisture contamination, must be in correct installation and lubrication. TIMKEN Bearing's arrangement design, grease seal situation, lubricants type and lubrication frequentness, special care, they all play the same important role in prolong the bearing's life.
