How to Flush Gearboxes and Bearing Housings

How to Flush Gearboxes and Bearing Housings

Quote:
Gearboxes and bearing housings periodically need a thorough flushing rather than a simple drain and fill. Several signs point to this requirement, such as overheating of the sump, gross liquid or solid contamination, and development of a severe wear pattern. Material evidence in the form of sludge, rust, moisture, wear metals, gel or other viscous residue that is present at the beginning of the drain should confirm to the technician that a flush is in order. A thorough flush is also useful for removing construction and assembly contaminants from equipment sumps prior to commissioning.

If you pay due diligence to your maintenance, that is unneeded, because the problems never show up in the first place.
