- - cut pipe.
The installation of the bearing is produced in several stages. On the first check and prepare the bearing Assembly and where it will be installed. Seating surface clean of rust, old grease and dirt. Also check how it is worn, or the bearing on the surface will rotate, resulting in disturbed functioning of the whole node. If the damage is minor, remove them by grinding. On the surface, which is prepared for the installation of the bearing, apply a small layer of grease.
Purchased to install a new bearing must be in a sealed package made of plastic, which is rustproof lubricant, contributing to its long-term storage. After opening the package, remove the bearing and wash it in gasoline. If there is a protective washer, rinse the bearing is optional.
To install the bearing, you will need a section of pipe of soft metal, suitable for the size of the inner or outer ring of the bearing. If you install it on the shaft, the socket must be suitable for the inner ring if mounted in the hull under the outer ring of the bearing. Install the bearing are not strong blows of a hammer on the socket, which, in turn, must be assigned to the corresponding bearing ring. Note, however, that the attached load must be uniform. In addition, you cannot apply it directly to the bearing rings or to a number of rolling elements.
In the process of assembling the bearing pay attention to the fact that it was placed on the shaft or in the hole without bias, as this may cause scoring of the surface of the bearing or hub.
Installing the bearing, lubricate the surface of the rolling elements with lubricant. Bearings with shields or sealing rings that already contain factory lubricated, so they do not require it.
To install the bearing should be free of dust or dirt, as this leads to premature failure.
