Fourth, while you can use quick connectors to your cart, you should also be aware that viscosity is affected by temperature. So, if your gearbox is located outdoors or in a non-insulated room, assume that the colder temperatures have affected the viscosity. Your filtration system should be able to help you determine the oil’s viscosity.
If you are thinking about changing your filtration system to use high-viscosity oils to keep your gearboxes running smoothly, there are few things you should consider first. Some industrial gearboxes require specific types of lubricant that will depend upon many factors, like environment and load speed. The following can help you decide if switching to … Continue reading Tips For Getting The Most Out Of Your Gearbox Filtration System
Synthetic oils are better at handling thermal and oxidation issues. If you use a mineral-based lubricant, that could be the cause of the overheating. If you upgrade to a synthetic lubricant, the overheating issue could be addressed. There is no real maximum surface temperature, so you must adjust and deal with temperature fluctuations by using … Continue reading Solutions for reducing heat in your industrial gearbox
Industrial gearboxes are subject to harsh conditions, including high pressures and extreme heat. These machines are designed to operate under pressure.
