New Visco-Elastic Support (VES) product line
Featured Product from ITT Enidine Inc.
ITT Enidine has developed the new Visco-Elastic Support (VES) product line to provide improved dynamic behavior of the rotor-bearing system and thermal force reduction to bearing support structures.
The working principle of VES is by providing high dynamic stiffness, adding supplementary damping to the rotor-bearing system, low static stiffness for thermal movement.
This reduces dynamic response of the generator, prevents the transfer of excessive thermal forces to the civil structure, thereby extending the life of the generator, structure and increases the output efficiency of the power plant.
