Hydrodynamic tilting pad thrust bearing assembly

thrust bearing parts assembly, in general, consists of a Bearing housing, a number of lower link members, a bearing pad, a link pin, and an outer retainer. These components are joined by a pivot, which provides a single axis for the bearing pad to spin around.

Between the bearing pad and the housing is the bottom link member. The link pin is axially connected to the bearing housing and prevents the lower link member from spinning.

An aperture 12a in the housing allows lubricating fluid to enter the bearing housing. Lubricating fluid enters the bearing housing via the opening and goes to the tilting pads. The lubricating device is situated on the tilting pad's leading surface. The gadget can be either rigidly attached to the tilting pad or pressure loaded.

The lubricating device may be detachable from the tilting pad as well. The lubricating device may consist of a wiper to wipe hot carryover fluid from the revolving surface. This approach allows more hot carryover fluid to be sheared off the revolving shaft while using less lubricating fluid.

  • Tapered thrust roller bearings vs spherical thrust roller bearings

    Tapered thrust roller bearings vs spherical thrust roller bearings

    A few factors must be considered when selecting a tapered thrust roller bearing versus a spherical thrust roller bearing for a spray pump. Tapered roller bearings, for example, have a wider contact area than spherical thrust roller bearings. Furthermore, tapered roller bearings can withstand higher radial stresses than spherical bearings. In automobile applications, tapered roller bearings are most typically employed.

    One ring of the tapered roller bearing has roller-guiding flanges and a truncated cone form. These flanges provide a modest relief on the bearing's axis to prevent stress peaks. Furthermore, compared to a ball bearing, the bearing has a greater contact surface and a higher load carrying capacity.

    Tapered roller bearings come in single-direction and double-direction configurations. A housing washer and a shaft washer are included with these bearings. The outer diameter of the housing washer is greater than that of the shaft washer. The sphered seating surface of the housing washer aids in the elimination of misalignment.

    Ball thrust bearings are similar to spherical roller thrust bearings. Both of these bearings can withstand high axial and radial loads. Spherical roller thrust bearings, on the other hand, are built for one-direction loading, whilst ball thrust bearings are suited for two-direction loading.

  • Floating stage design

    Floating stage design

    The design of a thrust bearing set that is connected to the pump shaft is involved in the floating stage design for spray thrust bearing for pump. A steel flinger disc must be able to fit into this set.

    The flinger disc must be large enough to be submerged in lubrication. It should be made of high-quality stainless steel. It should be at least 3/16 in wide by 1/8 in deep. It should be positioned in the bearing housing bore at 6 o'clock.

    An oil return slot must be present in the bearing housing. Figure 2 does not show this slot on the thrust bearing side. It should be standard on all oil-lubricated pumps.

    The slinger ring, sometimes known as the flinger disc, is also known as an oil ring. This ring transports the oil via the wedge portions. Its diameter must be carefully chosen. It is adaptable to varied viscosity classes. The diameter of the disc is frequently a useful indicator of whether it is a good pick.

  • Directed lubrication

    Directed lubrication

    Using a Spray thrust bearing for pumping applications with directed lubrication increases load carrying capacity, reduces power loss, and lowers bearing operating temperatures. However, adopting this form of lubrication necessitates changes to the bearing housing. The bearing's outer diameter must be enlarged. To avoid bulk oil, the collar perimeter must be constructed with a large drain surface.

    Furthermore, it is critical to keep the housing clear of bulk oil. The bearing's supply system must be constructed with a big aperture to control flow and sustain pressure. The bearing will be damaged if this portion of the supply system fails.

    Directed lubrication might take the form of a spray bar or a spray nozzles arrangement. Its benefit is that it thickens the film and lowers power loss by up to 50%. It also minimizes pad temperatures and oil churning.

    A lubrication groove at the leading edge of the pad can improve cold oil flow while also lowering the operating temperature of the bearing. This has the potential to reduce maximum bearing temperature by up to 10%.
