The Turbine Bearing Become the Development Trend

Update:2017-05-08

The bearing is a mechanical element used to reduce the energy loss caused by friction in the rotating parts of various equipment and machinery. There are several types of bearings, such as ball bearings, roller bearings, sliding bearings and so on. Technological advances and the growing demand for energy efficiency in a range of applications are leading to continuous improvement in bearing design. Therefore, the bearing market development prospects and high-performance industrial equipment and machinery production growth is closely related.

Powertrain industry management ensures maximum operational safety and low operating costs in industrial gearboxes, construction machinery and agricultural machinery, transmission technology, industrial forklifts, buildings or building structures. These applications require high quality, performance and reliability due to strong power density and high load. For example, the design for bearings in the field of modern construction machinery must be able to withstand high impact loads, high acceleration and speed, and have a compact design. Dust, damp, and difficult land have raised very high demands on agricultural machinery. Sliding bearings for bearing construction and construction support must be able to operate for decades in maintenance-free state.

The turbine bearing looks just a simple metal tube, but in fact he is a precision part that tells the rotation and ultra-high temperature. Its fine processing workers poor, sophisticated material use and processing is the most core technology of all turbines.

And the recent emergence of the ball bearing has gradually become the development trend of turbine bearings. As the name suggests, the ball bearing is installed on the turbine shaft ball, replace the oil to become bearings. Ball bearings have many advantages: it is less friction, so there will be a better turbine corresponding, can reduce the turbine hysteresis, and the power of the limit squeeze more favorable. His oil pressure and quality requirements can be reduced, indirectly improve the life of the turbine. But the disadvantage of ball bearings is not as durable as the traditional wave of bearings, about 70,000 to 80,000 kilometers to the life limit, and difficult to repair, high maintenance costs. So more attention to the durability of the turbine factory will not launch this form of turbine.
