Precautions for slip ring maintenance
As a part of industrial equipment, conductive slip rings are widely used in many electromechanical equipment. As a kind of movable and easy-wearing parts, the slip ring has a limited lifespan, so how to prolong the lifespan of the slip ring has become a crucial issue.
As a pioneer in the domestic slip ring industry, JINPAT Electronics has extremely rich experience in the design of high-life conductive slip rings. In addition to adopting excellent design and better materials, the maintenance of conductive slip rings during use is also a very important means to improve their service life. Next, I will give you a brief summary of some small knowledge about the use and maintenance of conductive slip rings.
First of all, when ordering a conductive slip ring, the environmental adaptation parameters of the conductive slip ring should be established according to the use environment of the conductive slip ring and its assembled terminal equipment, and then the accurate data should be given to the slip ring manufacturer to ensure that the customized conductive slip ring which has the ability to run stably for a long time in the environment of anti-vibration, anti-salt spray, high and low temperature, high dust and high humidity.
Whether the installation is correct or not is also a factor that affects the life of the conductive slip ring, so it must be installed correctly according to the installation guidelines. Among them, it is worth noting that a reasonable radial clearance is guaranteed during the installation process. If the radial clearance of the conductive slip ring increases, the load area in the conductive slip ring will decrease, and the maximum rolling body load will increase, thereby reducing the life of the conductive slip ring.
During storage and use, the maximum voltage and current that the conductive slip ring can withstand should be avoided, and it should be stored together with the terminal application equipment in a dry, non-corrosive gas, strong acid, and strong alkali corrosion place to avoid bearings, etc. The life of the conductive slip ring is reduced due to corrosion of metal parts and internal electrical components.
Conductive slip rings that work in special environments need to be customized. For example, the high and low temperature impact resistance of conductive slip rings, but if the demand exceeds the default value of standard products or ordinary products, then it needs to be customized. The normal operating temperature range of JINPAT ordinary conductive slip rings is -20°C~+60°C. If the conductive slip ring continues to operate in an environment exceeding this value, the normal life of the conductive slip ring will also be affected. In addition to high and low temperature shocks, physical shocks will also reduce the life of the conductive slip ring, so the conductive slip ring should also be avoided from violent external shocks during use.
