What Kind of Lubricant Is Fit for Bearing of Bucket Elevator

Due to the different kinds of elevator buckets, the maintenance methods are different, too. In the process of using the chain sprocket worn to a certain degree we should twist down screw bolt, change a wheel rim, infuse lubricating oil at ordinary times. The bearing is an important part of the bucket elevator and the lubricant plays a vital role in the normal work of the bearing. Though there is no need to consider this problem in the place where the maintenance-free bearings (ie, the sealed bearings of pre-filled grease) is used, with regard to the bearing with premature failure, there are still 36% of the bearings whose failure is caused by the incorrect use of the lubricant technology parameters so that it can not meet the application requirements.
The inevitable result is that the bearing that lacks the proper lubrication is easy to have the failure long before the arrival of the expected service life of the bearing. As the bearing is usually the part that is difficult to be close to, the ignored lubrication of the bearing will often lead to various problems. In the case that the manual lubrication can not be used, in order to get the best lubricating effect, the SKF automatic lubrication system will be a better choice. The hopper of common used bucket elevator can be divided into three kinds of deep bucket, shallow bucket and guide slots bucket. The front wall of deep bucket has a small slope with posterior of 65°, which is suitable for conveying dry and good mobility granular materials.
To use the recommended SKF grease, lubrication tools and techniques is helpful to achieve effective lubrication to help to significantly reduce downtime. The bearings are precision components, if the bearings and its lubricants can not stay away from pollutants, the bearings can not be operated effectively. Moreover, since the permanent sealed bearings only represent small part of the bearings, among all the premature failure of the bearing, there are at least 14% of the problems that can be attributed to the pollution. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to it.
