The gears of the gear reducer are made of high-strength low-carbon alloy steel through carburizing and quenching, and the hardness of the tooth surface reaches HRC58-62. So do you know what is the reason for the oil leakage of the gear reducer?
The reasons for the oil leakage of the gear reducer are as follows:
1. Improper maintenance process of gear reducer
During equipment maintenance, oil leakage may also be caused due to incomplete removal of dirt on the joint surface, improper selection of sealant, reverse installation of seals, and failure to replace seals in time.
2. Too much oil in the gear reducer
During the operation of the reducer, the oil pool is very agitated, and the lubricating oil splashes everywhere in the machine.
3. There is a pressure difference inside and outside the gear reducer
During the operation of the reducer, the friction and heat of the moving pair and the influence of the ambient temperature will increase the temperature of the reducer. If there is no ventilation hole or the ventilation hole is blocked, the pressure inside the machine will gradually increase. The larger the difference, the more the lubricating oil leaks from the gap under the action of the pressure difference.
All of us are mainly responsible for the above-mentioned reasons for the oil leakage of the gear reducer. For the oil leakage of our machinery, we all need to solve the problem of our machinery according to the specific situation.
