Lower coupling restoring forces can increase bearing and seal life.
Many of these factors relate to the ongoing instability in various parts of Europe, but in today’s interconnected global economy, innumerable current events and trends can impact the marketplace.
If the old saying “Build something better and people will buy it” is correct, then a new bearing housing design will be of interest to those focused on reliability.
Alternative bearing options can enhance reliability and increase energy efficiency.
One unique design transmits torque across the disc pack assemblies purely by friction, helping to prevent issues associated with stress concentration, backlash and chatter.
Common Pumping Mistakes
End users must understand the conditions that lead to early bearing failure to choose the best technology for their needs.
If power is interrupted, lubrication continues without causing major problems to pump bearings.
A large petrochemical plant increased the service life of its equipment from six months to three years.
The materials are able to withstand dry-run conditions.
Achieve pump and motor longevity by providing proper storage, avoiding pre-service damage, and conducting sound handling and maintenance procedures.
Modern labyrinth bearing protection seals can protect precision elements from contamination.
This equipment exploits the elasticity of synthetic rubber and ensures stable bearing behavior.
A thermoplastic composition in abrasive applications helped bearings meet end user specifications.
These recommendations can help end users prevent equipment degradation in pulp and paper applications.
