How to prevent the reducer from rusting

Since the reducer is mostly made of steel, if you do not pay attention to maintenance during use, the machine will easily oxidize and rust after a long time of use, which will greatly reduce its service life.To this end, we can take the following measures to prevent it from rusting.

1. The rust of the reducer is mainly caused by the presence of oxygen and water in the lubricating oil. The corrosion is caused by the acid and sulfide in the oil. We can add anti-rust additives and anti-corrosion additives to the oil. , to avoid rust.

2. Inject lubricating oil into the friction surface between the moving parts to form an oil film to prevent the metals from contacting each other, reduce wear and prevent the anti-rust layer from falling off.

3. Keep the surface of the reducer clean and dry.

4. Coating a layer of metal that is not easy to rust on the surface of the reducer by electroplating, hot-dip plating, etc. to form a dense oxide film, thereby preventing the reducer from rusting due to direct contact with water, air and other substances.

Rust will seriously affect the service life of the reducer and reduce its use efficiency. Therefore, the reducer manufacturer suggests that we should take the above rust prevention measures before use to ensure that the reducer can be used for a long time.
