Cardan Shaft | How to Extending Service Life

Many customers have come to ask us how to effectively extend service life of industrial cardan shaft. Today, Jiangsu Sitong Cardan Shaft CO., Ltd will tell you that a crucial step in extending service life of the cardan shaft is to regularly lubricate the cardan shaft.

Cardan Shaft
Our factory will fully lubricate the spline shaft of cardan shaft before shipment, which is convenient for customers to install and operate directly. However, the parts that have not been filled should be replenished before the initial operation.

Lubrication method is to inject grease into the nozzle. When the ambient temperature is between -20℃ and 120 ℃, the No. 2 lithium base grease and 5% Power additive are used, and it cannot be mixed with other greases. When the ambient temperature exceeds 120 °C, it is recommended to use No. 4 high temperature grease. When injecting grease, ensure that the grease can overflow from each seal to stop the injection.

For retractable universal joint transmission shafts, oil should be injected when the spline shaft is retracted to the limit position to prevent the internal space from being filled with grease to affect the telescopic movement. After the universal joint shaft is put into use for 500 hours, the joint bearing and the spline shaft should be relubricated again. Customers need to be flexible in the lubrication cycle. For universal joint shafts used in harsh environments, it should be lubricated once a month or even once a week.
