TILTING PAD JOURNAL BEARINGS


Introduction Basic Design
Tilting pad journal bearings offer the optimum in The John Crane standard tilting pad journal bearing

exceptional stiffness and damping characteristics. supported/pivoted centrally.
Tilting pad journal bearings are therefore ideal for use This enables shaft rotation in either direction. The pads
in high speed machinery operating under low to high are manufactured from steel and coated with a high

Calculation Of Tilting Pad Bearings Instrumentation


The calculation reflecting pressure development in the All John Crane bearings can be supplied with temperature
hydrodynamic surface is the result of solving the Reynolds sensors such as Thermocouples or Resistant Temperature
Differential Equation on the basis of the following assumptions: Detectors (RTDs). RTDs are available as single or double
PT100 types (see page 16).
■ The lubricant shows 'Netownian behavior' with respect to its
viscosity The use of temperature sensors permits permanent
control of bearing temperatures. This guarantees higher
■ The lubricant cannot be compressed operational safety.
■ All generated heat is dissipated by the lubricant
Based on the Reynolds flow equation together with a Inspection And Quality Control

takes account of the blending of freshly added oil and oil To meet today's stringent quality requirements and associated

Lubrication
Standard John Crane products consist of two product lines, Flooded lubrication (throttle ring)
with three types of oil supply

■ Flooded lubrication:
a) Laterally sealed by throttle rings and a defined seal gap
to the shaft. Additional oil flow controlled by inlet holes.

b) Laterally sealed by floating rings with oil flow controlled


by outlet holes (Standard S2)

■ Directed lubrication:
Oil inlet nozzles metering the flow and lateral flange seals
equipped with large drain holes on the lower side.

All standard John Crane models are offered as split designs,


proven to be the easiest way for assembly and maintenance.
Flooded lubrication (floating ring)
In addition, each product line (flooded or directed lubrication)
comes in two standard bearing width ratios:

B/D = 0.6
B/D = 0.9

Bearings with spherical pad support type P1 are the only


exception to this.

Directed lubrication (flange)
