HOW TO EXTEND THE LIFE OF HYDRAULIC MOTORS
hydraulic motor is a complex travel device with a limited lifespan that
requires proper maintenance. Preventive measurements can help to smoothen the
operation process and significantly prolong its life. Motor inspection frequency
should be based on the specific motor type, operating conditions and
manufacturer recommendations. In general, most of the motors and motor parts
should be checked at least every 6 months. Here is 4 essential things you
should pay attention to.
1. Motor ventilation
If your machine works in unventilated or poorly
ventilated areas, your motor can easily get overheated, which often causes
various problems. Dust and dirt are the biggest enemies of the motor
ventilation system, and to prevent this issue you have to blow away the dirt frequently.
If you want your motor to serve you for a long time, make sure its temperature
stays as cool as possible.
2. Loose connections
Something else you must check regularly is all the
electrical connections of your motor. Loose connections can cause many problems
with different parts of a motor, including joint failure caused by cold or creep flow during load cycles.
3. Voltage imbalance
Voltage imbalance happens when the voltage of three
phases is different from each other. Overheating, different vibrations and
torque pulsations are the results of voltage imbalance, which affects motor
Recently to boost sales many bearing manufacturers
claim their bearings to be ‘greased-for-life’. Don’t get tricked by that! Bearings
play a very important role in motor operation and need to be maintained
properly. When trying to calculate bearing lifespan it is important to consider
materials and lubrication frequency. Incorrect maintenance can shorten bearing
