Mechanic’s repair box
Here you can find a guidebook for quick choosing Molykote lubricants for solving troubles you may face while dealing with gaskets, chain drives, threaded connections, press-fits, rolling bearings, electrical contacts, friction units of food production equipment as well at during dismantling.
Molykote lubricants application in typical friction units. Rolling bearings.
Here you can find description of friction conditions arising between rolling bearing’s components, typical troubles and kinds of failures possible during operation, functions of a lubricant for bearings. The article suggests the products for solving the trouble related to rolling bearings operation and maintenance, among them are greases, assembly pastes, oils, dispersions, coatings, cleaners and other Molykote brand products. It is also shows the range of service temperatures for Molykote greases.
Molykote lubricants application in typical friction units. Sliding bearings.
Here you can find description of typical structure and primary parameters of sliding bearings, applicable constructional materials, lubricant functions and friction conditions arising in friction unit during operation. The article presents reasoning of lubricant type choice subject to sliding bearing’s speed. It gives classification of main kinds of failures and trouble arising during sliding bearings operation and maintenance and suggests Molykote brand lubricants for solving and preventing these failures.
Molykote lubricants application in typical friction units. Threaded connections.
Here threaded connections are presented as a complex of tribosystems, friction conditions in these connections, operation problems and typical kinds of threaded components failures. The article presents the functions the lubricants must provide for connections effective operation, gives recommendations on different Molykote lubricants application for solving threaded connections troubles and failures.
Molykote lubricants application in typical friction units. Gaskets.
Here you can find description of sealing devices purpose and principle of their operation, classification of sealing devices according to type of connection, conditions of friction in gaskets, troubles and faults rising during their operation, functions of lubricants for gaskets. The article suggests greases, compounds, anti-friction coatings, powders and other Molykote brand products for gaskets to be used under regular conditions, in vacuum and chemically agressive medium. There are also recommendations on selection of lubricants for automotive units gaskets as well as dry solid lubricant if necessary.
Molykote lubricants application in typical friction units. Chain drives.
Here you can find a classification of basic kinds of chains according their structure and purpose, read about primary chain structural components, conditions of friction, how lubrication affects wear intensity, about the methods of lubrication and the requirements towards lubricants for chains. The article presents greases, oils, dispersions, cleaners, pastes, anti-friction coatings and other Molykote lubricating materials for chains. There are also recommendations on solving typical problems you can face during chain drives operation with the help of Molykote products.
