How to adjust the installation axial clearance of spherical roller bearings

wallpapers Tech 2020-08-27
For the installation axial clearance of the spherical roller bearing, it can be adjusted by the adjusting nut on the journal, the adjusting washer and the thread in the bearings seat hole, or the pre-tensioned spring. The size of the axial clearance of a spherical roller bearing is related to the arrangement of the bearing, the distance between the bearings, the material of the shaft and the bearing seat, and can be determined according to the working conditions. For high-load and high-speed spherical roller bearings, when adjusting the clearance, the effect of temperature rise on the axial clearance must be considered, and the reduction in clearance caused by the temperature rise shall be estimated, that is, the axial clearance The gap should be appropriately adjusted to be larger. For low-speed and vibration-bearing bearings, clearance-free installation or preload installation should be adopted. Its purpose is to make the roller and raceway of the spherical roller bearing have good contact, the load is evenly distributed, and to prevent the roller and raceway from being damaged by vibration and impact. After adjustment, the size of the axial clearance is checked with a dial indicator. The method is to first fix the dial indicator on the body or the bearing seat, make the dial indicator contacts against the smooth surface of the shaft, push the shaft left and right along the axis, the maximum swing of the needle is the axial clearance value.
