Every brand of worm gear reducer has the possibility of oil leakage. Of course, no one wants their own worm gear reducer to leak oil, but there are always some coincidences. Sometimes it is due to certain problems in the product itself, sometimes it is used improperly, or the opposite needs are not explained clearly during procurement. Of course, the most important thing is that we can't buy some products produced by small manufacturers without strict testing in order to save costs for the moment. When your equipment is running and you see oil leakage every day, you will feel what heartache is. When the production line runs normally, it can generate hundreds of thousands of profits every day, and you have to stop the production line for a few hours to change the worm gear reducer, you will know that there is no regret medicine in the world.
In order to improve the efficiency of worm gear reducer, non-ferrous metal is generally used as worm gear, and the worm is made of hard steel. Because it is sliding friction transmission, it will produce high heat during operation, resulting in differences in thermal expansion between various parts and seals of reducer, resulting in gaps on various mating surfaces, and the oil becomes thinner due to the increase of temperature, which is easy to cause leakage.
There are four main reasons,
1.It is whether the matching of materials is reasonable. Every reducer has its important parts, the most important: gear, bearing and oil seal. When these accessories are not produced with superior materials and advanced technology. The quality of your equipment cannot be guaranteed.
2. It is the surface quality of the meshing friction surface: due to the sliding friction transmission, more heat will be generated during operation, resulting in differences in thermal expansion between various parts of the reducer and the seal, so as to form a gap on each mating surface, and the lubricating oil becomes thinner due to the increase of temperature, which is easy to cause leakage.
3.It is the selection of lubricating oil and whether the addition amount is correct. When it exceeds a certain amount, that is, you do not add it according to the oil gauge.
4.It is the assembly quality and use environment. When your environment is very bad, you may need to consider a special model of worm gear reducer. Or other types of reducer.
Its troubleshooting is similar to gear reducer, because it has one more component: worm.
