Swing Gearbox Lubrication Guidelines


In order to ensure the proper function and longevity of a swing gearbox, it is important to follow recommended lubrication guidelines. This article will provide a comprehensive guide to lubricating your swing gearbox to keep it running smoothly.

Types of Lubricants

There are many types of lubricants available for swing gearboxes. The most common types are:

  • Mineral oil
  • Synthetic oil
  • Biodegradable oil

Choosing the Right Lubricant

The type of lubricant you choose will depend on a few key factors:

  1. The operating temperature range of your gearbox
  2. The expected load on the gearbox
  3. The operating environment (dust, water, chemicals, etc.)

It is important to consult with your gearbox manufacturer to determine the best lubricant for your specific application.

Lubrication Schedule

It is important to follow a regular lubrication schedule to keep your swing gearbox running smoothly. The frequency of lubrication will depend on the operating conditions of your gearbox, but a general guideline is to lubricate every 250 hours of operation.

Lubrication Procedure

The following steps should be followed when lubricating your swing gearbox:

  1. Remove the old lubricant and clean the gearbox thoroughly
  2. Inspect the gearbox for any signs of wear or damage
  3. Fill the gearbox with the recommended lubricant to the proper level
  4. Operate the gearbox for a short period of time to distribute the lubricant evenly
  5. Check the oil level and top off if necessary
