All You Want to Know How to Choose Bearing Lubrication Methods [Quick]
How to choose the bearing oil
Bearing Material has an influence on bearing lubrication
Different bearings choose different bearing lubrication methods
The rolling bearing has two types are the radial bearing and thrust bearing according to its bearing direction. Use radial bearings generally to support shafts, while use thrust bearings to withstand axial load - oriented shafts. Radial bearings can use general lubricants. While for thrust bearings, you should use extreme pressure anti-wear lubricants with high viscosity as possible.
If the radial bearing limits the viscosity of the lubricating oil, the viscosity of the selected lubricating oil of the thrust bearing should be 1-2 grades higher than that of the lubricating oil for the radial bearing. In addition, according to the different rolling bodies, the rolling bearing has 3 types are ball bearing, roller bearing, and needle bearing. Roller bearing to choose higher than ball bearing 1 ~ 3 grades of lubricating oil viscosity. The choice of needle bearing lubricating oil is basically the same as the roller bearing but should consider where you use the needle roller bearing.
