    Why pay attention to the lubrication of TIMKEN bearings

    In daily use, many people do not pay attention to the lubrication of TIMKEN bearings. They believe that lubrication has little effect on the bearing. However, this often leads to a reduction in the life of the bearing.

    So, why should we pay attention to the lubrication of TIMKEN bearings? There are the following aspects for you to answer.

    (1) The first is to lubricate all parts of the bearing to reduce the friction and wear of the bearing;

    (2) Always form an appropriate oil film on the rolling contact surface of the bearing to extend the fatigue life of the bearing;

    (3) The heat generated by friction or other reasons inside the bearing is taken away by lubrication;

    (4) Lubrication can prevent rust and dust from the bearing.

    Therefore, we must correctly recognize the importance of lubrication for bearings, improve bearing performance and reduce consumption.

    How does grease function in TIMKEN bearings

    In the use of TIMKEN bearings, everyone knows the importance of grease. But I am afraid that many people still don't know how grease works in the bearing? Let me tell you about it.

    The thickener is composed of a network of soap fibers and functions like a lubricating oil container. The space of the mesh structure is filled with lubricating oil, as if the holes in the sponge are filled with water.

    If a sponge is squeezed, water will flow out, and the grease will be like a sponge. The oil will be discharged due to the squeezing. However, the grease in the bearing is rarely directly squeezed and drained because a newly lubricated bearing is running in At this time, the grease moves on the inner space of the bearing.
