Article Preview

The working principle and performance characteristics of a self-made oscillation tribo-tester were introduced. Under different oscillation frequency and pressure conditions, the friction coefficient and linear wear of spherical plain bearings with polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) woven liner were investigated. By using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), the wear mechanism of the spherical plain bearing was analyzed. The results indicate that with the oscillation frequency increases, the friction coefficient of spherical plain bearings decreased while the wear loss increased. In the high frequency of 4.8Hz, the reduction ranges of the friction coefficient is not obvious with the contact pressure increased, but the effect of contact pressure on the wear of the spherical plain bearing is great. During the experiment, adhesive wear, abrasive wear and spalling wear took place on the surfaces of woven liners.
