KML Cast Iron Mounted Bearing Units grease fittings:
KML Cast Iron Mounted Bearing Units are equipped with spring loaded ball-check valve grease fittings. The spring loaded ball-check valve provides a positive seal after grease is pumped into the bearing thereby preventing any back flow and keeping dirt out. The grease fitting should be wiped clean before attaching the grease gun to prevent pushing dirt or contamination into the bearing.
The grease fitting style varies depending on part type and shaft size. The most common styles and configurations are shown above in the diagrams. Most of the fitting types are able to be visually identified by comparison to the diagram.
General fitting identification by series follows:
- Chevron SRI#2 – Normal load ball bearing inserts
- Mobilux EP 2 – Heavily loaded plain and roller bearings
