What is the surface hole of bearing ring?
holes on the surface of bearing rings are corrosion holes. In each link
of bearing production, such single-point or multi-point quasi-circular
or oblong black dot defects often appear on the surface of bearing
rings.In many cases, we often mistaken this defect is caused by material defects.
How is the surface hole corrosion of bearing ring formed?
normal circumstances, there is a layer of passivation film on the metal
surface to protect the metal from oxidation and corrosion. However, due
to the chemical or physical properties of the metal surface, such as
large composition fluctuations, non-metallic inclusion, foreign body
adhesion, mechanical damage, oxide film cracks, etc., the surface
passivation film may be destroyed.
metal surface without the passivation film is in an active dissolved
state. At this time, if the electrolyte solution with a certain
concentration is encountered, the aggressive anions in the electrolyte
solution (such as Cl-) will be electromigrated by the cation action of
the active metal surface and concentrate on the surface of the metal
anode, causing the increase of the corrosion potential of the metal
the corrosion potential of metal anode is high to a certain degree,
reaching the critical value of forming corrosion nucleus, the anode
begins to dissolve, the anode current increases sharply, and pits are
formed on the metal surface.
Corrosion prevention and treatment of bearing ring surface holes
In general, smooth, clean, and dry surfaces are less prone to pore corrosion.There
are many reasons for the corrosion of bearing parts, the most common is
the erosion of wet air, sea breeze, sea water, sweat, oxidation and
deterioration of antirust oil (fat), and various chemical processing
processes between processes (such as pickling, acid printing, etc.) fail
to neutralize and clean in time, etc.;At
present, some areas of serious environmental pollution, acid rain, acid
fog frequently occur, which is rich in nitric acid, hydrochloric acid
makes the parts have a tendency to increase the hole corrosion.
the bearing production process, many links are likely to produce hole
corrosion, especially in the storage and turnover of ring car after
after turning the ring, there is no heat treatment immediately, then
the surface of the passivation film is fragile and prone to hole
the car parts are rough parts, often do not pay attention to the
necessary surface protection, to provide a good storage environment, to
avoid bumping, but also lead to the occurrence of hole corrosion;As parts are stored for longer periods of time, corrosion holes may be so deep that they cannot be eliminated by grinding.
Influence of bearing ring surface hole corrosion
corrosion not only affects the accuracy and surface roughness of
bearings, but also reduces their service life and even leads to scrap,
so people should pay enough attention to it.Especially in humid, hot, offshore climate environment, it is necessary to avoid such problems as hole corrosion.The
bearing rings in the processing process should be treated with
anti-rust treatment in strict accordance with the cleaning and anti-rust
procedures, and the cleaning fluid and anti-rust oil (liquid) used
should meet the requirements of the process technology;At the same time, speed up the turnover speed in the production link to prevent various bumps and injuries.
