The maintenance of the reducer coupling can be roughly divided into two types: lubrication and none-lubrication. Reducer couplings that require lubrication, such as gear couplings, chain couplings, and slider couplings, must stay lubricated all the time. Lubricating oil membranes have a great influence on the performance and service life of the coupling. Therefore, the couplings that use the lubricating oil should be inspected regularly and replace the damaged seals and the aged lubricating oil as necessary.
For gearless couplings that do not require lubrication, such as diaphragm couplings, star-shaped couplings, plum flexible couplings, and tire couplings, the couplings should be regularly checked for looseness or wear, if the above issues are found, the component should be repaired or replaced in time.
In the corrosion and solvent environment, the rubber elastic flexible coupling used in addition to the protective cover, etc., should also be regularly checked or one should replace the rubber elastic component to prevent the rubber from aging or brittle to ensure normal working performance. Establishing regular rules and regulations for equipment inspection, maintenance and allocating special personnel to ensure the operation of the coupling can effectively improve the service life and reliability.www.morayshaft.com
