Description

  The present invention relates to a lubricant deterioration detection device for detecting a deterioration state due to a contaminant of a lubricant, and a bearing with a detection device provided with the lubricant deterioration detection device, for example, for railway vehicles, automobiles, industrial machinery, etc. The present invention relates to a bearing with a lubricant deterioration detection device.

  In a bearing in which a lubricant is enclosed, if the lubricant (grease, oil, etc.) inside the bearing deteriorates, the rolling element will be poorly lubricated and the bearing life will be shortened. Judging the poor lubrication of the rolling elements from the vibration state of the bearing, etc., will be dealt with after an operational abnormality occurs due to the end of the life, so the abnormality of the lubricating state cannot be detected earlier. Therefore, it is desired to observe the state of the lubricant in the bearing periodically or in real time so that the abnormality or the maintenance period can be predicted.

As a major factor in the deterioration of the lubricant, wear powder generated with use of the bearing is mixed into the lubricant.
A sensor-equipped bearing in which a sensor such as an electrode or a coil is arranged inside the seal of the bearing so that the electrical characteristics of the lubricant mixed with wear powder can be detected by the sensor. Has been proposed (for example, Patent Document 1).
JP 2004-293776 A

However, the sensor-equipped bearing of Patent Document 1 is for detecting the electrical characteristics of the lubricant. Therefore, unless a situation occurs such that a large amount of wear powder enters and conduction occurs, it is not detected as a characteristic change. Detection of contaminants may be difficult.
In order to solve such a problem, for example, as shown in FIG. 6, a lubricant 36 to be detected is interposed between the light emitting element 33 and the light receiving element 34, and is emitted from the light emitting element 33 and passes through the lubricant 36. A configuration has been considered in which light is detected by the light receiving element 34 and the deterioration state of the lubricant 36 is estimated from the amount of light detected by the light receiving element 34.

  However, in this configuration, it is not possible to detect optical characteristics such as a difference in absorption rate depending on the wavelength of light only by grasping a simple relationship between the lubricant and the amount of light absorption. Therefore, it is difficult to detect the deterioration of the lubricant with higher accuracy, and detailed information regarding the deterioration of the lubricant such as the type of foreign matter contained in the lubricant cannot be obtained.

An object of the present invention is to provide a lubricant deterioration detection device capable of detecting detailed information related to lubricant deterioration such as the amount of foreign matter mixed in the lubricant.
Another object of the present invention is to provide a bearing with a detecting device that can easily detect the state of deterioration of the lubricant and prevent the bearing from being poorly lubricated.

According to a first aspect of the present invention, there is provided a lubricant deterioration detecting device including an optical system having a plurality of light emitting elements having different wavelengths and at least one light receiving element on which light from the plurality of light emitting elements is incident. The optical system includes a lubricant in the optical path between the plurality of light emitting elements and the light receiving element, and estimates the deterioration state of the lubricant from the difference in absorption rate for each wavelength detected from the output of the light receiving element. An estimation means is provided.
In the lubricant deterioration detection apparatus configured as described above, light emitted from a plurality of (for example, two) light emitting elements and transmitted through the lubricant is detected by the light receiving element. In this case, when both the light emitting elements are turned on alternately, the light receiving element measures the light transmittance (or light absorption rate) of each of the wavelengths in the lubricant in a time-sharing manner. The amount of light can be detected. Since the amount of transmitted light decreases as the content of foreign matter such as iron powder contained in the lubricant to be detected increases, the estimation means can estimate the content of foreign matter in the lubricant from the detected amount of transmitted light. it can.
When a lubricant is used in, for example, a bearing, it is a foreign matter mixed in the lubricant because wear powder generated with the use of the bearing is mixed as a major factor in the deterioration of the lubricant. By estimating the wear powder content by the estimating means, the deterioration state of the lubricant can be estimated. In particular, in this lubricant deterioration detection device, the amount of transmitted light of different wavelengths is detected by the optical system. Therefore, due to the difference in the amount of transmitted light according to the wavelength, for example, the contamination condition and color of the lubricant, and foreign matter to be mixed It is possible to obtain detailed information on deterioration such as identification of

An estimation means for estimating the deterioration state is provided.
In the lubricant deterioration detection device configured as described above, light emitted from the light emitting element and transmitted through the lubricant is detected by a plurality of light receiving elements having different wavelength sensitivities. The estimation means can estimate the content of foreign matter in the lubricant from the detected transmitted light amount, and can also estimate the deterioration state of the lubricant from the estimated content of foreign matter. In addition, because the transmitted light amount or light absorption rate of different wavelengths is detected by the optical system, from the difference in the transmitted light amount according to the wavelength, the contamination condition and color of the lubricant, the type of foreign matter to be mixed, etc. It becomes possible to obtain detailed information regarding deterioration.

The bearing with the lubricant deterioration detecting device of the present invention is equipped with the lubricant deterioration detecting device of the present invention.

That is, the light receiving element 4 measures the light transmittance (or light absorption rate) for each wavelength in the lubricant 6 in a time-sharing manner, and can detect the transmitted light amount for each wavelength. Since the amount of transmitted light decreases as the content of foreign matter such as iron powder contained in the lubricant 6 to be detected increases, the estimation means 5 estimates the content of foreign matter in the lubricant 6 from the detected amount of transmitted light. can do.

  When the lubricant 6 is used in, for example, a bearing, a main factor of deterioration of the lubricant 6 is that wear powder generated with the use of the bearing is mixed into the lubricant 6. Therefore, by estimating the content of abrasion powder, which is a foreign matter mixed in the lubricant 6, by the estimating means 5, the deterioration state of the lubricant 6 can be estimated. In particular, in the lubricant deterioration detection device 1, the transmitted light amounts of the different wavelengths are detected by the optical system 2, and therefore, for example, due to the difference in the transmitted light amount depending on the wavelength, for example, the degree of dirt and the hue of the lubricant 6, It is possible to obtain detailed information regarding deterioration, such as specifying the type of foreign matter to be mixed.

  FIG. 2 shows a schematic configuration diagram of another embodiment of the present invention. The lubricant deterioration detection device 1 according to this embodiment includes a single light emitting element 3 and a plurality (two in this case) of light receiving elements 4A and 4B that have different wavelength sensitivities and receive light from the single light emitting element 3. And an estimation unit 5. One of the light receiving elements 4A has sensitivity to red, for example, and the other light receiving element 4B has sensitivity to blue, for example. The light emitting element 3 is selected to emit, for example, white light including red and blue wavelengths. In the optical system 2A, a lubricant 6 to be detected is interposed in the optical path between the light emitting element 3 and the plurality of light receiving elements 4A and 4B. The light-emitting element 3, the light-receiving elements 4A and 4B, and the circuit serving as the estimating means 5 are mounted on the circuit board 7, and the circuit board 7 is installed in the housing 8, and the lubricant in which the housing 8 is a detection target. 6 and the light emitting element 3 and the light receiving elements 4A and 4B are arranged opposite to each other with the gap 9 interposed therebetween, as in the first embodiment. The estimation means 5 compares the outputs of the light receiving elements 4A and 4B, and estimates the deterioration state of the lubricant 6 according to the setting criteria from the difference in the light transmittance (or light absorption rate) for each detected wavelength. Is. The detection signal of the estimation means 5 is output to the outside from the wiring cable 10 and the power is supplied to the lubricant deterioration detection device 1 from the outside via the wiring cable 10 as in the case of the first embodiment.

In the lubricant deterioration detection device 1 having this configuration, light emitted from one light emitting element 3 and transmitted through the lubricant 6 is detected by a plurality of light receiving elements 4A and 4B having different wavelength sensitivities. That is, each of the light receiving elements 4A and 4B individually detects the amount of light transmitted from the light emitting element 3 and transmitted through the lubricant 6 and having different wavelengths. The estimation means 5 can estimate the content of foreign matter in the lubricant 6 from the detected transmitted light amount.
Also in the case of the lubricant deterioration detection device 1, the deterioration state of the lubricant 6 can be estimated by estimating the content of foreign matters mixed in the lubricant 6 by the estimation means 5. Further, since the amount of transmitted light (or light absorptance) of different wavelengths is detected by the optical system 2A, due to the difference in the amount of transmitted light according to the wavelength, the contamination condition and color of the lubricant 6, and the type of foreign matter to be mixed It is possible to obtain detailed information on deterioration such as identification of
