Differences Between Single Row and Double Row Ball Bearings

August 10, 2022 by SLS

A ball bearings is a rolling-element bearing that relies on balls to keep the bearing races apart. A ball bearing's job is to decrease rotational friction while also supporting radial and axial stresses. Ball bearings have been around for hundreds of years and have been utilized in various applications — intended to accommodate thrust and radial stresses in everything from hard drives to skateboards. On the other hand, ball bearings are also often used in situations with lower pressures.

Hydraulic Accumulators

August 02, 2022 by SLS

Accumulator is installed in hydraulic systems with the idea of conserving or storing energy and smoothening pulsations as efficiently as possible. These are energy-storing devices. They are quite similar to rechargeable batteries that are used in electrical systems. These store and release energy in the form of pressurized fluids and are widely used to improve hydraulic system's efficiency. Accumulator is a pressure vessel that keeps compressed gas (nitrogen) and compressed hydraulic fluid. The[...]
