4 Tips to extend the wear life of your bucket tooth
Today I will talk 4 tips help you to extend bucket tooth wear life and increase productivity which, in turn, provides you the greatest return for the money invested.
1.The practice has proved that during the use of the bucket tooth, the outermost tooth wear is 30% faster than the innermost tooth wear. It is recommended to change the position inside and outside the tooth after using a period of time.
2. Choose the right teeth according to the working environment. Excavation, weathered sand, surface coal, etc, use flat head teeth. Dig block hard rock, choose ROCK bucket teeth; Dig block coal seam, use TL bucket teeth. In actual use, People often prefer general-purpose ROCK bucket teeth. It is recommended to use ROCK bucket teeth for special cases. It is best to use Long bucket teeth because ROCK bucket teeth will become like ‘fist’ after wearing for a period of time, which will increase excavation resistance, waste the fuel. And the Long bucket teeth always maintain a sharp surface during the wear process, reducing the excavation resistance and saving fuel.
3. The wear condition of the teeth adapter is also very important for the wear life of the excavator bucket tooth. It is recommended to replace the tooth adapter after the tooth adapter wears 10%-15%. When the tooth adapter and the tooth wear excessively, There will be a large gap, which causes the force point of the tooth and the tooth holder to change, and the tooth is broken due to the change of the force point.
4. The excavator driver should pay attention to the angle of excavation during the operation. When excavating, try to make the bucket teeth perpendicular to the working surface when digging, or the camber inclination angle is not more than 120 degrees, to avoid excessive inclination and break the tooth. Also, be careful not to swing the excavating arm to the left or right with large resistance. This will cause the tooth and the tooth to be broken due to excessive force on the left and right. Because the mechanical design principle of most types of teeth does not consider the left and right forces.
