  • Understanding the Importance of Transducer Orientation
    When monitoring vibration on large gas or steam turbines and generators with fluid-film bearings, the relative movement of the shaft within the bearing is typically measured by a pair of shaft proximity (eddy current) transducers. Data from these transducers is used to produce a variety of plots
  • Bearing Systems for Fans: Ball Bearings Or Sleeve Bearings? (.pdf)
    ). This creates a wedge-shaped film of oil at the narrowest part of the bearing. gap that at higher rotating speeds eventually leads to a hydrodynamic state, where the shaft and the bearing no. longer come into contact with each other. This process is the same for all sleeve bearings. However with Sintec
  • Bearing Wear
    Wear of plain bearings is influenced by the state of lubrication and, conversely, wear characteristics influence the various lubrication states. Hydrostatic bearings do not wear when operating properly because the bearing surfaces are separated by a film of oil. Erosion of flow restrictors
  • Air Bearing Basics
    Bearing Tables. Fully Integrated XY Air Bearing Stages. Air Bearing Basics. What are Air Bearings?. Basically, air bearings use a thin film of pressurized air to support a load, the same way the puck on an air hockey table "floats " on air. This type of bearing is called a "fluid film " bearing. Fluid
  • Proper Film Thickness key to Bearing Survival
    in Numerous oil and grease-lubricated bearing designs rely on adequate lubricant film thickness for smooth and trouble-free operation. Engineers must check that films are sufficiently thick so asperities peaks of surface roughness between mating surfaces don't touch. Otherwise, bearings can rapidly
  • Bearing Lubrication - Types, Methods, and Shelf Life
    range, base oil viscosity, and stiffness or penetration level are key characteristics to consider when selecting a grease. Most greases used in rolling element bearings are NLGI grade 2. Solid Films: These are non-fluid coatings applied to the frictions surfaces to prevent wear. They are used
  • Hydrostatic Bearings
    for a given recess pressure and bearing load. The gap establishes the volume of fluid pumped through the bearing. An alternative design is to connect a fluid displacement pump (gear or vane type) directly to each pocket without flow restriction. Pressurizing pump power can be estimated from
  • Bonded films take the "bite "
    material. The black and dark gray layers above the reinforcement particles are films that reduce friction and wear. Glass-filled engineering thermoplastics (GFTPs) can replace metals in many applications. GFTPs are lightweight, stiff, strong, and inert to most process fluids and corrosives
