The Function of Reducer Lubricating Oil

- Nov 24, 2020-

The reducer is generally used for low-speed and high-torque transmission equipment. It transfers the power of the electric motor, internal combustion engine or other high-speed operations through the gear with a small number of teeth on the input shaft of the reducer to mesh with the large gear on the output shaft to achieve the purpose of deceleration. The machine is a relatively delicate machine, and the purpose of using it is to reduce the speed and increase the torque.


The primary effect of the lubricating oil in the reducer in gear transmission is to reduce the conflict and wear between different bearings and mechanical transmission components such as ball bearings, ball bearings, roller bearings, rolling bearings, needle bearings, and reduce the contact surface of the components. The conflict resistance between them can reduce energy consumption, improve the transmission efficiency of the machine, extend the service life of each component, and ensure the normal operation of the equipment. At the same time, the lubrication oil can also play a role in absorbing vibration, cooling, heat dissipation, preventing rust and reducing noise in the reducer.
