Conveyor idler oil maintenance

In maintenance of machine parts and accessories work, the oil has a good maintenance effect. So when and when the grooved rollers need to be changed and when, how much is suitable.
If the oil change is too small, the bearing of the conveyor idler will be scrapped in advance; if the oil change is too much, the friction idler will generate heat, and long-term operation will endanger the core rotating part of the conveyor idler. So how to maintain conveyor idle?

The way to decide when to lubricate and when to stop oiling is very simple: develop a base line, develop an observation schedule and monitor when oiling. Formulating a base line The friction roller base line reflects the decibel strength under normal operation, no visual errors, and sufficient lubrication. Three ways to develop a baseline:

1. Set the basic line when adding lubricating oil: when adding lubricating oil, listen to the intensity of the sound, when the sound intensity decreases and then increases. At this time, don't add too much lubricant and set it as the base line.
2. Comparison method: If there are multiple conveyor idle of the same type, these bearings can be put together for comparison. Use the same test method or observe each bearing from the same angle. Analyze decibel intensity and sound quality. If there is no essential difference (less than 8 decibels), we can set it as the basic decibel strength of eachconveyor idle.

3. Historical record: Observe the decibel intensity of the conveyor idle, record it every day, and then compare the recorded results for 30 days. If there is little or no change in the decibel intensity, we can set this as the base line and use it to compare the results of future observations.
