Maintenance and lubrication

Before inserting the sliding elements, clear the mounting surfaces of the housing. An oil film on the back surface will make it easier to mount the bearing. Before mounting the axle, lubricate the sliding surfaces with a light greasy film to avoid wear of the inlet and to activate the solid lubricant.

The following greases should be preferred:

The greases have to be free of Additives like MoS2 (molybdenum disulfide) and EP.

The work to be carried out is usually limited to an inspection of the wear in the period from ½ to 2 years, depending on the duration of use and load. After each disassembly, a single re-greasing should be carried out, but the sintered sliding film of solid lubricant should not be removed. Continuous introduction of lubricant is not necessary, as the parts are maintenance-free under consideration of the application criteria for sliding elements made of bronze with solid lubricant.
