Equilibrium Of A Beam
Description of Equilibrium Of A Beam
A self-contained product that shows how a self-acting gas lubricated journal bearing works. It also shows the onset of ‘whirl’.
The main part has a variable speed motor that turns a belt drive. The belt drive turns a precision bearing shaft. The shaft has a high-quality surface finish and spins inside a vertically loaded bush. A hand operated load control and load cell allow the user to apply and measure the load on the bearing bush. The bush has pressure tappings equally spaced around its circumference. The tappings connect to a multi channel digital pressure display unit.
