How Can Right Lubrication Reduce Pump Bearing Failures If you have a submersible water pump and if any of its components fails the cost that you pay to get them repaired can go on a higher side. Owing to this it is imperative that you have the apt knowledge about the right lubrication used in the pump can cut down the odds of bearing failure. If the bearings are rightly lubricated along with less adulteration it will function at reduced temperature with longevity. Poor or defective lubrication can be classified as: Experts across the globe have toiled hard to find the key reason behind the premature failure of the rolling elements of the pump. Finally it was found that the poor lubrication is the key reasons behind this. The experts are of the view that around fifty percent damage is because of the defective lubrication. Let us get to know more about poor lubrication –  Degradation of the lubricant.  Use of the wrong lubricant.  Adulterated lubricant.  The inappropriate quantity of lubricant.

The right way to lubricate the pump – The lubricant used for the bearings include – synthetic oil grease and mineral oil. The key intention of the oil or the oil constituent of the grease is to make the separation of the raceway contact surfaces and the roller elements. It is also done for offering protection against cooling and corrosion. In order to have right lubrication of the pump bearings it is important to make use of right viscosity oil intended for the speed load and operating temperature. When this is done the maintenance of complete oil film between the rotating parts is assured. Make sure that you are aware of the fact that the viscosity gets negatively influenced via contaminants temperature change of chemical load and water. It is crucial that the owner’s manual should be referred in order to be familiar with the recommended viscosity. The sensitivity of synthetic’s oil viscosity is much less as compared to the temperature variations and more extensively used when there is a fluctuation of the temperature. Knowing the right quantity of the lubricant – Let us discuss the varied types of bearing lubricants –  Oil splash lubrication is one of the key methods which are being used extensively. There are different designs in which the oil splash is available including – flinger discs direct contact oil rings or the blend of each.  Both the flinger discs and oil rings are put into use where the loads or the speed are the key elements. Also the oil does not have direct

contact with the bearings. The main thing on which they are reliant on is the shaft speed.  Grease is mainly used for the pumps having low horsepower where the parameters are in size. So the above discussion will surely make you aware of the right lubricant for your stainless steel centrifugal pump.
