Structure of water pump
 
The water pump used in automobile engine is centrifugal water pump, which consists of shell, impeller, bearing, pump shaft, water seal and transmission belt wheel.
 
(1) water pump housing is made of cast iron or cast aluminum.
The wall of cast iron case is thick and its quality is large. With the improvement of the requirement of engine lightweight, only some large engines of commercial cars are still using the pump of cast iron case.
Many cast iron cases also have some water channels and thermostat installation rooms, which further increase the weight of the case.
Most water pumps in cars use cast aluminum shells, and the size of the shells is getting smaller, many of the shells no longer have the function of water channels.
(2) the impeller of the impeller pump is made of metal or engineering plastics, such as cast iron. The impeller is made of semi-circular arc, double circular arc or multi-circular arc blades that bend backwards.
Pump impeller made of cast iron is of high quality, but its mechanical strength is high.
The plastic impeller is easy to realize miniaturization and lightweight, and has good corrosion resistance and easy shape processing. Therefore, more and more car engine pumps use plastic impeller.
                 
 
(3) bearing water pump bearing is an important part of water pump, and the failure of a considerable part of water pump is caused by the damage of water pump bearing.
As the engine gradually develops towards high power, the pump bearing needs to have higher thermal stability, greater bearing capacity and better sealing, so some automobile pumps use axial bearing.
Shaft bearing is actually a kind of double supported bearing with simplified structure. Two supporting bearings have no inner ring. The raceway of the rolling body is directly processed on the pump shaft.
Under the same bearing capacity, the size of shaft bearing is smaller than that of general type bearing.
Under the condition of the same size, the bearing capacity of shaft bearing is greater than that of general type bearing.
 
(4) pump shaft pump shaft is generally made of forged steel.
The pump impeller is installed on one end of the pump shaft, which is supported on the pump housing by bearing.
The other end of the pump shaft is equipped with a transmission belt wheel, which is driven by the engine crankshaft through toothed tape or v-shaped tape.
 
(5) water seal is used to seal the cooling fluid so as to avoid leakage. Meanwhile, the cooling fluid is separated from the pump bearing to protect the bearing.
At present, two-layer ceramic water seal has been widely used in water pumps. Two ceramic water seals installed on the same axis are pressed together by a spiral spring.
Compared with rubber water seal, ceramic water seal is more wear-resistant and has a longer service life, but it is also prone to abrasion by hard particles in the cooling fluid.
Although the processing of water seal has been improved continuously, water seal damage caused water pump leakage is still the main reason for water pump damage.
 
(6) according to the tooth shape of the belt, the belt wheel can be divided into toothed belt wheel and v-shaped belt wheel.
With less and less transmission tape on the engine, more and more pumps share one toothed belt drive with generators, air conditioning compressors, steering pumps, etc. Therefore, more and more toothed transmission belt wheels are added.

      The most important component of the water pump is the pump shell and the inner parts of bearing and the bearing. To improve the pump, the most important thing is to optimize and improve the two parts. The following is a detailed introduction to the improvement of the two parts.
      1. to improve the pump shell. When disassembly the pump to inspect the failure, there are a large number of debris seriously affect the quality of the pump and work efficiency. In this case, we can reduce the two holes used for drainage on the pump shell to one, and remove the drain holes on the upper part of the transmitter. This can greatly reduce the small particles and sundries into the pump, thus greatly reducing the interference of sundries on the pump and the other bad.
      2. to improve the bearing. In the case of the failure of the bearing, we are generally sealed, the lubricating oil used by the bearing, the ball of the bearing and the bearing itself. So we should have a solution to these parts
      3. to improve gasket. The traditional design is to design the sealing test as a double mouth seal, so the advantage of the design is that two ports are all frictional with the bearing, the roughness of the bearing surface is more appropriate and the wear of the lip is relatively slow; but the disadvantage is that a large amount of dust can be directly entered into the middle of the mouth and bearing, so that the plate will be used for a period of time. The interference between the bearing and the bearing decreases, thus losing the original function of the seal. There are two ways to improve it: the first is the sealing week of the bearing with double, and the sealing area is lengthened properly and the thickness of the chip mouth is thickened accordingly. The method is to change the original double mouth into the three form of the seal and seal the seal. The advantage of this structure is that the outer lip and mouth have increased the seal design, which can resist many dust. However, this method also has shortcomings, the mouth and the reverse cap friction, the surface roughness of the surface of the cover is relatively poor, it is very easy to wear and tear seal test, resulting in sealing failure.
      4. to improve the lubricating oil. The bearing of the automobile pump is a more special bearing unit. Its environment is mostly temperature, humidity and dust, and the temperature of the water usually reaches about one thousand degrees, so the lubricating oil of the bearing is required. From our analysis of the fault, the lubricating oil in the bearing of the fault appears discolourable, which means that the grease in the lubricating oil is not enough, so the lubricating oil manufacturer should be required to increase the fat content of the lubricating oil so as to ensure the better protection of the bearing.
      5. to Improve the contact ball of the bearing. Balls in bearing are important parts to ensure normal operation of bearings, but there are more and more damage to rolling balls. When measuring the hardness of the ball, it is found that most of the balls do not meet the required hardness requirements, which makes the bearings greatly wear at high speed and finally breaks down completely. Therefore, we should strictly supervise the production quality of the manufacturers, guarantee the hardness of the ball and pass the quality, so that the fundamental problem of bearing damage can be effectively solved.

      China's shortcuts in automobile manufacturing industry
      Over the past nine years, China has become the world's largest automobile market and producer, with annual production and sales exceeding 25 million vehicles. China's automotive industry has also been the world's largest automotive industry in just a few years, driven by the huge domestic demand of the Chinese market. But there is not a strong enough component system to support the development of China's automobile industry. In March this year, the 2017 Top 100 list of global auto parts suppliers was officially unveiled. Unsurprisingly, Germany's Bosch Group continued to rank first with more than $46 billion in revenue, while German gearbox supplier Zeiff rose to second. From the third to the tenth ranking of parts companies are Magna, electronics, mainland, Aixin, modern Mobius, Virginia, Lear.
      In this ranking, China's highest ranking of parts companies is Yanfeng automotive interior system, followed by CITIC Deka ranked 71. And the selected parts enterprises are mainly single components. Feilong Jiangli supply water pumps for car plants.
      In contrast, there is no comprehensive automobile parts supplier in China's automobile industry.

      The phenomenon that two objects move relative to each other to produce motion resistance between their contact surfaces is called friction, which is called friction. The existence of friction not only increases the power consumption, but also causes the wear of parts' contact surfaces. Therefore, lubricating oil is usually used between the relative moving surfaces of automobile parts to reduce friction. Failure of automotive parts 75% is caused by friction.
      Friction can be divided into dry friction, liquid friction, boundary friction and mixed friction according to the lubrication state of the parts.
      (1) dry friction
      The friction between the frictional surfaces without any lubricating medium is called dry friction.
      When the parts are in the state of dry friction, the surface of the parts is abraded sharply, so the surface of the moving parts of the automobile should avoid the occurrence of dry friction as far as possible.
      Dry friction and boundary friction are the main friction between the upper part of cylinder wall and piston ring. Dry friction will occur when the journal and bearing are subjected to impact load in the working process.
      (2) liquid friction
      Two the friction of the friction surface when the lubricant is completely separated is called liquid friction.
      In liquid friction, the two friction surfaces are completely separated by a layer of lubricating oil film with a thickness of 1.5-2.0um, which avoids direct contact between the working surfaces of the two parts. Friction only occurs between the lubricating fluid molecules, so the friction resistance is very small, and the wear of the parts is very slight.
      Most of the relative motion parts of a car are carried out under the condition of liquid friction (for example, crankshaft and bearing).
      (3) boundary friction
      Two friction surface separated by a very thin boundary film is called boundary friction.
      The oil film thickness is usually below 0.1um. Friction only occurs between the outer molecules of the boundary film, reducing the friction and wear of the parts. But its thickness is very small, and it is easy to be destroyed by impact and high temperature, so it is not as reliable as liquid friction.
      For example: between cylinder wall and piston ring; if the work crankshaft and journal between the insufficient supply of lubricant, easy to produce boundary friction.
      (4) Mixed friction
      The friction between two friction surfaces in the presence of dry friction, liquid friction and boundary friction is called mixed friction.
      In the actual working state, the parts usually work under the mixed friction state, and the friction state varies with the working conditions.

      Melt mold casting
      One is to make the wax into a mold, coat it with several layers of refractory paint to make a mold shell, and then heat the mold, so that the mold melt, flow out, and baked into a certain strength mold, and then poured, shell and get a casting method. Process features: take the melting pattern as the starting mode. The precision of casting is high, and it is a method of little cutting. Its equipment is simple and production quantity is not restricted. It is mainly used for mass production and mass production. The drawback is that the process is complex and the production cycle is long.
      Pressure casting - a casting process in which molten metal is rapidly pressed into the cavity of a metal mold under high pressure and solidified under pressure to obtain a casting. Process characteristics: High speed and high pressure were added to the metal mold casting to enhance the metal fluidity, which was mainly used in the batch production of non-ferrous alloy (such as aluminum, copper, magnesium, etc.) precision castings.
      Centrifugal casting - a casting process in which molten metal is poured into a high-speed rotating mold to solidify liquid metal under centrifugal force to obtain a casting. Process features: compact structure, good casting quality. It is used to produce hollow castings.

      Automobile parts refer to the components of each unit of the automobile and all consumable materials serving the automobile. They can be divided into automobile parts, Automobile standard parts and automobile materials. The following is a detailed introduction.
      (1)Auto parts are divided into parts, assemblies, component, and body panels.
      Parts: the basic manufacturing unit of a car. It is an integral part that can no longer be disassembled. Such as: piston ring, piston, valve, impeller and so on.
      Assembly: a combination consisting of more than two parts and acting as a single part. For example, a connecting rod with a cover, a pair of bearing shells, and a cylinder head with a valve guide.
      Component: a combination consisting of several parts or assemblies, but can not function independently. For example, transmission cover, cooler cover, automobile steering connector, water pump and so on. Sometimes it is also called "half assembly".
      Body panels: formed by sheet metal stamping, welding, and covering automotive body parts such as: radiator cover, leaf plate, etc.
      (2) automotive standard parts
      Designed and manufactured according to the national standards, the same parts are unified in shape, size, tolerance, technical requirements, and can be used in a variety of instruments and equipment, and interchangeable parts are suitable for automotive standard parts such as bolts, gaskets, pins, keys, etc.
      (3) automotive materials
      Automobile operating materials, such as various oils, solutions, automotive tires, accumulators, standard bearings (non-special), etc.
      Most of the products produced by non-automotive industry and used by automobiles, generally not included in the catalogue of various types of automotive accessories, also known as "horizontal products".
