Common problems caused by outward sealing strip structure slewing drive when installed vertically

Brief Introduction of Outward Sealing Strip Structure Slewing Drive

The IP rating of outward sealing strip structure slewing drive is IP54, which couldn’t be installed in outdoor applications and it is mainly applied in construction machinery, rotary driven in the factory and other occasions with external protection. It can be only installed horizontally. It’s not recommended to be installed vertically for its sealing trip does not have the function of grease sealing.

The common problems caused by outward sealing strip slewing drive

Problem 1:

When installed vertically, especially the worm cavity is upwards, the grease will all accumulate to downside of the cavity for gravity which will lose the function of lubrication. For a long time, it will produce severe wear due to insufficient lubrication between worm and gear.

Problem 2:

                                                                               

Outward sealing strip is designed mainly for dust-proof, it affixed to the enclosure by its tension force of the seal. If installed vertically though, the seal upside will open when the slewing drive loaded, then the rain will have easy access to the device, which will cause inside grease emulsion, corrosion of bearings, gears, worm gears, thus lead to serious breakdown.

Problem 3:


Outward sealing strip is designed mainly for dust-proof, it affixed to the enclosure by its tension force of the seal. A large amount of grease will all accumulate to downside of the cavity, which will cause severe grease leakage for the sealing strip’s lack of tension force, thus leading to pollution and waste.
