1. Color change equals failure
This kind of knowledge often comes from common sense of life. For example, if the color of a food that is ready to eat with the lid changed, it means that the food is no longer fresh and can no longer be eaten. However, the color change of oil products is not equal to the change of lubricating performance of oil products. In most cases, it is impossible to ensure that the industrial gear oil is in a pollution-free environment. In the process of lubricating and protecting mechanical equipment, the oil products will also bring impurities into the equipment or the environment, thus changing the color of the oil products. The appearance abnormality of oil products refers to that the color of oil products changes significantly compared with the new oil after use (for example, the yellow or brown of the new oil changes to black), or obvious oily sludge or particulate matter can be observed in the oil products. Therefore, the color change of industrial gear oil cannot be equal to the failure of lubricating performance of oil.
2. The equipment is not damaged and the oil is not replaced
We often think that as long as the equipment is not damaged, it means that the lubricating oil can still be used. However, this understanding often brings great risks. The damage of industrial equipment is often a process from small to large, from slow to rapid. When the equipment makes abnormal noise, it indicates that the wear is serious, and it will be faced with the risk of equipment maintenance, shutdown or scrapping and replacement. Industrial gear oil is the lubricating blood of industrial equipment. When the oil contains excessive water, mechanical impurities or cannot form lubricating oil film, the oil should be changed in time to ensure lubrication protection for the equipment.
How to judge the oil change cycle of industrial gear oil?
The determination of oil change period and oil change index is a very complicated problem, which is related to gear running in, gear load, type and quality of gear oil, and the importance of lubricating parts in mechanical equipment. Generally speaking, gear boxes with small oil consumption can be changed regularly according to actual experience. The oil replacement cycle of gear boxes without water contact can reach 4000-5000h. Large gear units usually use centralized lubrication system. Since the oil is regularly replenished, the oil is often changed according to the quality of the oil according to the deterioration of the oil. The oil change index can refer to the viscosity, moisture, acid value Mechanical impurities and iron content.
