What are the disadvantages of entering water into a machine?
- Reduced lubrication performance: Wetness will destroy the formation of the oil film, make the oil film thinner, reduce lubricating performance, and cause a sharp increase in wear.
- Eroded parts: The oxidation reaction between water and oil, as well as a large number of metal particles caused by wear, can cause harmful substances to be formed in the oil, corrode the components, and form sludge.
- Reduce oil consumption: The oxidation reaction will deteriorate or emulsify the oil, reducing the oils useful life.
- Reduce machine usage time: Various hazards caused by moisture not only affect normal operation of equipment and production lines, but also significantly reduce the service life of the equipment, which is detrimental to industrial production and value addition.
What to do if the equipment enters the water？
- Turn off the machine: After the rainstorm, you need to power off and shut down your machine. In addition to protecting equipment, it is important to protect your personal safety.
- Clean and check machine: Cleaning up the sludge and dirt on and in the equipment, checking whether the equipment is faulty when the situation permits, and dealing with it as soon as possible.
- Replace old oil with new oil: To minimize further losses, the old lubricating oil should be removed and replaced with a new pure lubricating oil.
- Light running: Following the completion of the cleaning, inspection and oil change operations, start the machine and connect it to the power supply, run it with a light load, and check that the oil supply is normal and that all components are sealed properly.
