What is the working temperature of the slewing bearing?
The slewing bearing is a very important part in the machine. Basically, every machine needs this part. Because this part is relatively fragile, it can also be regarded as a kind of consumables. You need to buy it frequently to keep the machine in good condition. normal operation. Let’s take a look at the working temperature of the slewing bearing.
The slewing bearing can work normally at -300C～+700C. If the user needs to adapt to the lower or higher temperature slewing bearing, our company can make special design. If the slewing bearing is used in particularly harsh environments, such as marine climate, dust or abrasive particles, sand, cement, coal powder, etc. Special sealing rings, protective devices, and suitable oil passages should be selected. Therefore, in order to make your support function normally, it is hoped to do a good job in daily maintenance and maintenance.
The tooth surface of the slewing bearing should be cleaned and changed every 8-10 working days, and foreign matter should not be mixed.
Features of slewing bearing materials
The slewing bearing is mainly composed of ferrules, rolling elements, cages, sealing rings, etc. Since different parts have special functions in practical applications, there are different considerations in the design and selection of materials.
In general, the rolling elements of the slewing ring are made of carbon-chromium bearing steel that is hardened as a whole. The slewing bearing ring is made of surface hardened steel. When the user has no special requirements, it is generally made of 50Mn steel. However, sometimes in order to meet the needs of the host in some special applications, other grades of surface can also be selected according to the specific use conditions provided by the user. Hardened steel, such as 42CrMo, 5CrMnMo, etc.
For small and medium slewing bearing forgings, round or square bars are used as blanks. The grain structure and mechanical properties of the bar are uniform and good, the shape and size are accurate, and the surface quality is good, which is convenient for mass production. As long as the heating temperature and deformation conditions are reasonably controlled, forgings with excellent performance can be forged without large forging deformation. Ingots are only used for large forgings. The ingot is an as-cast structure with large columnar crystals and a loose center. Therefore, through large plastic deformation, the columnar crystals must be broken into fine grains, and the loose compaction can be obtained in order to obtain excellent metal structure and mechanical properties.
The cages for slewing bearings have integral, segmented, spacer block and other structural forms. The integral and segmented cages are made of 20-gauge steel or ZL102 cast aluminum alloy. The spacer block type is made of polyamide 1010 resin, ZL102 cast aluminum alloy, etc. With the continuous development of the material industry, nylon GRPA66.25 has also been popularized and applied in the design of segmented cages.
The material of the slewing ring seal is made of oil-resistant nitrile rubber. The codes of the ferrule material and the supply status of the blank are as specified in the table. In the table, “T” means that the blank of the ring is supplied in a quenched and tempered state, and “Z” means that the blank of the ring is supplied in a normalized state.
The above is a complete introduction to the working temperature of the slewing bearing and the characteristics of the slewing bearing material. I hope it can be helpful to you.
