JBJ Techniques Tue, 12 May 2015

Hydraulic motors and pumps are used in a variety of environments. These environments can be damaging to shaft seals due to dirt particles penetrating the shaft sealing area. This will begin to erode the elastomer, altering the shaft surface finish in the sealing area, and seal failure will eventually occur. Replacing the seal requires removing the pump/motor, disassembling and repairing it and reinstallation. The result? Significant system downtime increasing operating expense.

According to Peter Swanson, managing director at Intertronics, the lubrication of mechanical and electromechanical assemblies should be a precise science, with applied material volume and placement accuracy critical to effectiveness. No one expects the control buttons in their car to leave grease on their fingers. Operators of precision equipment do not expect to find their parts contaminated by lubrication from the bearings.

According to Dixon Group Europe, it is important to identify the threads required before ordering couplings. Identifying threads can sometimes be the most difficult and frustrating part of coupling selection. However, without the right combination of threads, you may not provide a functional or safe connection.
