Advantages and disadvantages of molybdenum disulfide

wallpapers News 2021-12-29
Molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) is the main component of molybdenite. Black solid powder with a metallic luster. Chemical formula MoS2, melting point 1185°C, density 4.80g/cm3 (14°C), Mohs hardness 1.0~1.5. It starts to decompose at 1370°C and decomposes into metallic molybdenum and sulfur at 1600°C. its advantages and disadvantages are as follows:
1. Molybdenum disulfide eliminates oil spills, cleanly, and greatly promotes civilized production.
2. It can save a lot of lubricating greases.
3. Improve the operating technology, extend the maintenance cycle, reduce the labor intensity of maintenance workers, and save labor.
4. Due to the low friction coefficient of molybdenum disulfide, the friction resistance between the friction devices is small, which can save power consumption. According to the measurement of brothers, the power saving can be 12%.
5. It can reduce mechanical wear, extend the service life of friction equipment, reduce the loss of equipment parts, and improve the attendance rate of the equipment.
6. The application of molybdenum disulfide lubrication can solve the technical key and improve work efficiency and accuracy.
7. Molybdenum disulfide has the function of filling and filling, which can restore the geometric dimensions of some parts and prolong the service life.
8. Molybdenum disulfide has the characteristics of moisture-proof, waterproof, alkali-proof, and acid-proof.
9. Molded parts smelted with plastic or powder of molybdenum disulfide can save a lot of non-ferrous metals.
10. After some equipment is lubricated with molybdenum disulfide, the complicated oil supply system can be eliminated, which greatly simplifies the equipment structure and relatively improves the utilization rate of the effective area. At the same time, it will also cause major reforms in equipment design.
11. Molybdenum disulfide also has its shortcomings, such as poor thermal conductivity, low friction coefficient, low permeability (compared to thin oil), etc. These shortcomings are the main obstacles to further expanding the scope of use, compared with related industries Developed countries attach great importance to the research on solid lubricants, and have also held international lubrication conferences to exchange relevant information and discuss new technology. In recent years, some industrialized countries in the United States, Japan, and Western Europe have established friction, wear, Lubrication center. Friction, wear and lubrication has become a new subject alone. Many foreign universities have offered courses in friction, wear, and lubrication. Solid lubricants are also one of the topics of teaching and research. my country also has specialized institutions engaged in research. The shortcomings of solid lubrication are the problems in the process of progress. For our hard-working, brave, and wise Chinese people, these problems can be overcome through repeated practice and continuous improvement and creation and can advance and invent. Modern science and technology are developing very rapidly, and more perfect solid lubricating materials will appear soon. To realize the life-long lubrication of all equipment.
The molybdenum disulfide solid lubricating base is indeed a new type of lubricating material that conforms to "multiple, fast, better, and economical" and should be promoted and applied vigorously.
