Journal Bearing Apparatus

The apparatus consists of a plain steel shaft excavated in a bearing and directly driven by a FHP Motor. The bearing is freely supported on the shaft and sealed at the motor end. The speed of the motor is controlled accurately by the speed control unit and it can be made run in both directions. Twelve equal-spaced pressure taping around the circumference and four along the axis are provided and are connected to manometer by PU Tubing so that the pressure head of oil in all tubes can be observed at a time. The bearing can be loaded by attaching weights to the arm supported beneath it.

Technical Details:

  • Control panel for speed control of motor
  • Motor: Variable speed FHP motor
  • 16 tubes
  • Oil recommended: SAE 40
  • Manometer
  • Bearing: Diameter 55 mm
  • Weights: 4 adjustable weights
