Maintenance Cycle

Maintenance intervals for cardan shafts depend mainly on the conditions of the given application; heavy duty or higher than average ambient temperatures, for instance, lead to faster lubricant consumption. Hostile environments, heavy soiling or exposure to water, necessitate shorter maintenance intervals. The following are recommended lubrication internals in the interest of a prolonged service life(the values below are valid only for use at normal conditions).
