Key fea the LEG bearing superior to other directed lubrication bearings in use today * Oil feed tubes connecting to the shoes ensures that cool oil does not bypass the film, * The LEG feature is an integral part of the shoes. * Large oil flow passages eliminate small-hole clogging, + No oil seal rings are required, lowering power loss and simplifying design and installation, * The special, higher pressure lube systems typi- cally needed for spray lubrication, features such ures make EG does not require (but can use) een) ‘These optimum design and key features are standard on the LEG which contribute to the performance advantages, The LEG bearing’s advantages extend beyond performance improvements, Since most of all the fresh oil flows into the oil wedge, the significant reduction in flow and power loss allows use ler lubrication oil systems, cutting capital costs. bearings are perfect for retrofit appli tions and can be used to economically increase bearing performance in existing installations. Retrofitting LEG bearings is the perfect solution if field experience has proven «a bearing installation to be marginal or if upgrades or changes in operating conditions have caused an increase in load. LEG ings can be installed quickly, without modifications to the bearing housing or shaft. Lubrica ng tn the sane ing so no alterations need be made to the oil delivery system. Merely replacing standard bearings with LEG retrofits will immediately provide flow, power loss and shoe temperature advantages with minor modifications to existing housing parts and flow paths, optimum benefits can be obtained. For new LEG thrust and journal bearings provide the following benefits * Lower friction power loss for in overall machine efficiency + Lower operating temperature and increased load capacity * Lower oil flow requirements for smaller lubricating oil systems and lower capital costs * Ability to optimize for maximum load capacity of to minimize power loss. ing oil enters and exits the LEG nie ay ot Stackard Furthermore, For retrofits, d LEG Thrust Shoes Kingsbury LEG bearing shoes are designed with offset pivots, OU oF the etfecuwe length of the shoe, (See “Optimized Ofer,” page 51, for further discussion.) Standard materials of construction of shoe body are low carbon steel with high lin content babl {. Material selection can be engineered to meet unusual applications, Kingsbury utilizes distinctive raised spherical support on the back of the shoe to allow full 360° pivot, rather than a aised strip which only allows shoe tilt in nade of carbon tool steel, heat treated to 52 0 57 Rockwell C to ensure no flattening of the sphere. Kingsbury tests indicate that this feature allows self-aligning of the shoe ‘one direction, Shoe supports are which lowers the difference between shoe temperatures Base Ring Made of structural steel plate or forged steel, the base ring holds the shoes and leveling plates in their operating positions An oil inlet annulus, at the back of the base ring, distributes oil {0 axial holes Umough the base ring Out the oil feed tube. wall and tno Tecmo Oil Feed Tube ‘The oil feed tube, connecting the base ring and shoe, is uniquely designed so that the shoe is free to pivot. This allows freedom of movement in the shoe and ensures that oil is fed directly to the shoe face. Leveling Plate Assembly ‘The equalizing feature of the Kingsbury thrust bearing allows each shoe to carry an equal amount of the total theust load That is, the leveling plate feature reduces the chance of one shoe being more highly loaded than another shoe. The leveling plates working with the spherical shoe supports ensure that the thrust bearing face becomes perfectly aligned with the rotating thrust collar. ‘Shoe Retention Shoes are retained (0 facilitate assembly See page 29 for further details, LEG BEARINGS OUTPERFORM FLOODED AND OTHER DIRECTED LUBE TYPES Kingsbury's LEG bearing design has proven itself through exhaustive testing and years of trouble-free operation to represent the ultimate in directed lubrication technology Yet the design concept is remarkably simple, ‘The bearing shoes and base ring ate constructed so that cool undiluted inlet oil flows from the leading edge groove in the bearing shoe directly into the oil film, The cool oil in the oil film wedge insulates the babbitt face from the hot oil carryover that adheres to the rotating collar. Because of these features, LEG theust hearings can + Reduce operating temperatures at the 75/75 location by 8 to 28°C, depending on load and shaft speed. + Provide a load capacity increase of 15 to 35%. * Operate at oil flow rates as much as 60% lower, with an accompanying reduction in power losses of 45%. Power loss is lower than both flooded and spray feed bearings due to the elimination of parasitic losses. ‘The flow of cool oil over the leading edge lowers shoe surface temperatures, increasing the LEG bearing’s capacity.

We recommend ISO VG32 oil viscosity for moderate and high speed applications. For other oil viscosities consult our engineering department for assistance in bearing selection, Step-by-Step Sizing 1.

An orifice is required before the bearing to properly regulate flow and pressure (See page 50, Pressure and Flow Orifice’). The oil supplied to the bear ing should be cooled and filtered to a normal of 2: microns. are BEARING HOUSING REQUIREMENTS ‘The bearing housing requir ments for the LEG thrust bearing are similar to those of standard thrust bearings. No oil seal rings are required since the inlet oil is confined tw passages within the hase ring assembly. Fresh oil enters the bearing through an annulus located at the bottom of the base ring, The discharge space should be large enough to minimize contact between the discharged oil and the rotating collar. The discharge oil outlet should be amply sized so that oil can flow freely from the bearing cavity ‘The typical bearing housing shown here provides our recommendations for sizing the discharge annulus. Kingsbury recommends a tangential discharge opening, equal to 80% of the collar thickness If possible the discharge outlet should be located in the bottom half of the bearing housing, Tecmo BEARING CLEARANCE (ENDPLAY) Ace is required for proper bearing operation, Clearance is typically adjusted by use of filler plates and/or shims during installation, The accompanying giaph provides Jin amount of clearance recommended values.

Consequently, for critical applications, we recommend using shoes with built: so you can) see actual metal temperatures under all operating conditions. Either thermocouples or resistance temperature detec- tors (RTDs) can be installed in the shoe body near the shoe body/babbitt interface. See figure below for Kingsbury's recommended location. See page 50 “Temperature Detector Location’ for further discussion, temperature se Thrust Measurement For bearings subject to critical- ly high loads, continual thrust measurement cin provide a vital indication of machine ind bearing condition, To let you measure thrust, we can install a strain gauge load cell in one or more places in the bearing Load cells can be installed in LEG bearings in the upper leveling plate or in place of the shoe support. We can also provide complete measuring instrumentation and recorders, © MIN BASF METAL SECTION 8 A NOTES ON SELECTING LEG THRUST BEARINGS API Ratings ‘The thrust bearing ratings given in the charts comply with API specifications for thrust hearing selection, ie all loads listed are equal to or less than one half of the ultimate capacity Slack Side Load Capacity & Flow Load capacity is related to shoe temperature which is influenced by oil flow. The rated loads listed in the charts re based on recommended flow values to the loaded bearing. In machines where load can reverse and apply full force on the normally slack bearing, an equal amount of oil flow is required to the "slack side." Power loss varies with oil flow. The case of equal rated load capacity and flow to both bearing sides results in the highest power loss. It design loads are less than the bearing ratings, flow require- ments can be lowered with a resulting reduction in power Joss. To achieve the optimum reduction in power loss, Joaded and slack flows can be sized proportionately for nor- ‘mal and reverse design loads. ‘Time is required for operat ing shoe temperatures to climb to steady state values. When the reverse load is of very short duratios there is little or no reverse load, slack side flows can be reduced to as low as 20% of rated values resulting in the lowest possible power loss and flow requirements. Endplay Endplay recommendations presented in this catalog are a generic guideline to cover a wide range of applications. Special cases such as very high speeds, extreme ambient conditions, external axial vibration, ete., may require special consideration and rec- ommendations, Please contact your Kingsbury Sales Engineer for situations not addressed by this catalog, Shoe Retention Standard LEG thrust bearings are designed with features to hold the shoes in place so the bearings do not fall apart dur- ing handling and assembly.

Power loss is lower than both ‘0 flooded and spray feed bearings due to the elimination of parasitie losses. The flow of cool will over the leading edge lowers shoe surface temperatures, increasing the LEG oo e bearing’ capacity. ‘The resulting Lf pentane performance improvements are r= shown in these graphs, Lit it i tj.

High Pressure Lift Shoes can be modified for the injection of high pressure oil to establish an oil film at start-up or during very low speed operation, Kingsbury can also supply the high pressure lift systems, Floating Seals When oil flow out of the bearing along the s! to be controlled, floating seal rings can be utilized See “Discharge Configuration,” page 49. has Agra Hing Peta Pl anes Speng | NOTES ON SELECTING LEG JOURNAL BEARINGS Discharge Configuration A significant power loss reduction is obtained in direct lubrication by the quick evacuation of oil from the bearing, This is best accom- plished in journal bearings by allowing the oil to exit freely in the axial direction which is the flow path generated by side leakage. Attempts to restrict this flow typically defeat the power advantage. In Kingsbury’s standard LEG journal, the bulk quantity of oil is stopped by a single tooth labyrinth seal on the ‘outbourd sides of the bearing, and centrifugal forces send the oil out amply sized discharge drains. Similarly, casing drains should be adequately sized and vented to allow free drainage of the cavity Other discharge and flow configu situations which can tolerate no axial discharge, Please contact your Kingsbury Sales engineer. ations are available for Pivots For axial misalignment, spherical pivots are subject t0 damage and vibration which bearing clearance and rotor vibration over time. Fitted pivot designs prevent such damage but have been reported 10 give other undesit- able effects by behaving as fixed geometry bearings because pivot triction resists adjustment to changing conditions, Kingsbury's journal shoe pivot has a compound surfa designed to allow axial misalignment capability while significantly lowering pivot contact stresses and suscepti- bility to damage, The design was developed for earthquake and naval applications where the contact area rapidly increases under load giving added protec at damage from unusual or adverse conditions (large rotor imbalance, vibration, etc). The low stresses resist damage. ‘The rolling contact design assures that the shoe angle readily responds to changing operating conditions, and the can increas in agai componnd surface easily adjusts for static and dynamic misalignment of the shat High Speed Clearance Radial clearance recommenda- tions presented in this catalog re a generic guideline to cover a wide range of applica- tions.

Like a flooded bearing, the LEG is a hydrodynamic bearing and has the fluid film properties of a hydrodynamic bearing. The difference is in the lubrication method. In a flooded bearing, oil is provided to the rotating surface by flooding the space between shoes. In an LEG beating, cool oil is provided directly to the rotating surface at the entrance to the oil film. LEG Catalog Curves Power loss and shoe tempera- ture curves are provided to allow a quick, reasonably accurate estimation of loss and temperature for the various bearings available in this cata- log. ‘To accomplish this, curves have been reduced in quantity to average values for a variety ‘of configurations, This results in a possible 5% variation which is a reasonably good estimate for design purposes. If ‘your estimations fall to0 close to design limits, our engineer ing department can assist with your particular selection, appli- cation, and criteria ‘Temperature Detector Location ‘The most accurate measure- ment of surface temperature is obtained with the detector installed in the babbitt However, babbit is a soft material and can deform over time under hydrodynamic film Forces resulting in a dimple in the surface. The detector may read inaccurate values hecause Of the local distortion and can be damaged by the forces. Unsupported babbit is also subject to fatigue which can lead to more severe damage and eventual failure. Such problems are prevent- ed by installing the detector in the shoe body assuring there is base metal above the detector hole to support the babbitt. There is only a small difference in temperature which we can relate to surface temperature and set alarm and trip appropriately to accom- modate the slight change in considering the provides a more effective level of protection and is recommended by Kingsbury. Pressure And Flow Orifice For flow contrel, Kingsbury recommends an upstream orifice in the line to cach bearing (loaded thrust, slack thrust, and each journad). If these are external to the housing, adjustments to flow can be made without disassembling and machining the bearings or bearing casings. Such adjustments may be required to optimize flow for bearing temperature of power loss, or fo increase flow in cases of upgrades Orifice sizing is a straightfor- ward procedure. The major pressure drops consist of the pressure drop through the upstream orifice and the drop through the hearing. ‘The recommended flow for the bearing depends on operating conditions. For lower speeds, less flow is required and, since pressure is proportional to flow, less pressure is required at the bearing, ‘The required pressure at the bearings ranges from .25 atmosphere for flows at the low speed end of the charts, to .5 atmosphere a mid range, to 1.0 atmos- phere at the high speed end, each upstream orifice can be sized to drop the system sup- ply pressure to the pressure required at each bearing, Alarm & Shutdown Limits For Temperature ‘Temperatures on the order of 160° C cause plastic flow of the babbitt, Maximum temper- atures are conservatively limited to 135° C. Allowing 8° C for alarm and 15° C for trip settings, maximum operat- ing babbitt temperature is 120° G. It is important to note that alarm and trip are set relative to normal design temperatures. Specifically, if the design temperature 18 85° , the trip should be set at 100° C, not 120° ¢. In addition to the bearing, consideration has to be given to the temperature limitations of the lubricant. Consult the lubricant supplier for information on the lubricant’s limitation. Maximum Speeds Its difficult to set a rule of thumb on maximum speed because of the many factors that affect the limits. The curves and charts listed in this talog are purposely limited to conservative speeds. The bearings are suitable for higher speeds, but may require special consideration in regard To shoe material, oil flow, flow paths, and housing configura- tion. Therefore, if your application exceeds the speeds shown in the chaits, please contact us for assistance. Optimized Offset A 60% offset is designed as standard because itis suitable for most of the speeds and loads covered in this catalog. For other applications, or for special requirements, the offset can be optimized for the specific application, i uidler «0 achieve die Lest performance from a bearing, it should be optimized for one direction of rotation, Significant gains in performance are realized by offsetting the pivot and using leading edge groove lubrication, Bearings designed this way, such as the LEG, will operate in reverse with approximately 60% of the load capacity of the forward direc- tion depending on the speed. Since most reversals are temporary, the lower reverse load capacity is not usually a problem. Center pivot, bi- rotational bearings are typically instrumented with temperature detectors toward the trailing edge of the pad. This makes them unidirectional in the sense that they must be purchased, labeled, and installed for une direction. As Jong as the thrust bearing is going to be operated and instrumented for one direction, it is logical to optimize the design for that rotation, especially at high speeds, Backing Material Data is presented in the catalog for stecl and chrome copper shoes which are suitable for most applications.
