Vertical pump thrust bearings Details

Vertical thrust sliding bearing is mainly used for vertical mounted pump or other rotary mechanical equipments.It can withstand axial force and radial force. It mainly consists of thrust bushing components (with disc spring and support parts), guiding tile, guiding tile seat, adjusting bolt for guiding tile, bearing plate (for thrust bushing support), oil-water cooler, housing, thrust head expansion sleeve, oil seal, inner and outer oil pots, etc. According to different operating conditions and load, different lubrication method can be used,for example:self lubrication or pressure oil lubrication. To self-lubricating bearing, there are two kind of cooling way: natural cooling or through water cooler that assembled inside of bearing housing. Lubrication oil goes between thrust head and inner oil pot through the groove on bearing plate with thrust head rotating, and then reaches working surface of thrust bushing and guiding shoe for lubrication and cooling. Then it goes out of oil outlet from guiding bearing support and outer oil pot, it is cooled by oil-water cooler and then goes for circulating lubrication.

In the design of vertical pump thrust bearings, do problems caused by fluid dynamic effects need to be considered and solved?

A vertical pump is a pump that draws liquid from below and delivers it upward. During the operation of the vertical pump, the thrust bearing bears the pressure of the liquid, so the fluid dynamics effect cannot be ignored in its operation. Fluid dynamic effects can affect the working conditions of thrust bearings.
A thrust bearing is a bearing used to withstand axial force (i.e. thrust). In the thrust bearing of a vertical pump, the liquid enters the pump through the bearing and is then pushed upward by pressure to complete the delivery of the liquid. As fluid passes through a thrust bearing, various hydrodynamic effects occur.
Liquids create friction when they flow. The liquid is sucked into the bearing from the bottom and then pushed to the top. During this process, the contact between the liquid and the bearing will generate friction. Friction will affect the operation of the thrust bearing and may cause bearing wear or temperature rise.
The flow of liquid in bearings creates vortices. Vortex is a common phenomenon in fluid dynamics, which creates resistance to the flow of liquid and increases the pressure on the bearings. The existence of vortex will complicate the flow of liquid in the bearing and increase the friction and loss of the bearing.
Hydrodynamic effects can also cause air condensation and cavitation in liquids. Air condensation refers to the accumulation of gas in a liquid to form bubbles in the liquid, which affects the flow properties of the liquid. Cavitation refers to the sudden collapse of bubbles generated in the bearing, which will cause the local pressure in the liquid to increase sharply and impact the bearing. Air condensation and cavitation will increase bearing friction and loss, reducing pump efficiency and life.
In the design of thrust bearings for vertical pumps, problems caused by fluid dynamic effects need to be considered and solved. For example, self-lubricating materials can be used to reduce friction, reasonable flow channel design can be used to reduce the generation of eddy currents, and exhaust devices can be installed to reduce air condensation and cavitation. Through these improvements, the working efficiency and stability of the vertical pump can be improved and the service life of the thrust bearing can be extended.

When the temperature of a vertical pump thrust bearing is too high, do the lubrication system and the bearing itself need to be carefully inspected?

Check the temperature of the thrust bearing of the vertical pump. If the bearing temperature is too high, it may be caused by poor lubrication or bearing damage. In this case, you need to consider repairing or replacing the bearing.
When the temperature of the vertical pump thrust bearing is too high, we need to conduct a series of inspections and tests to determine the cause of the problem. First, we can check the lubrication system of the pump to ensure that the supply of lubricating oil is sufficient and normal. If poor lubrication is found, we should replenish the lubricant or replace it with new lubricant in time to provide better lubrication effect. In addition to lubricating oil, you should also check whether the cooling water in the lubrication system is supplied normally to ensure that the operating temperature of the lubrication system is within the normal range.
If the lubrication system is found to be normal, there may be a problem with the bearing itself. Vertical pump thrust bearings can become damaged, worn or exhibit excessive wear. In this case, we need to consider repairing or replacing the bearing.
Before repairing, we first need to check the wear of the bearings. If the bearing damage is not serious and there is only some wear and tear, we can try to repair the bearing wear. Wear repair can use coating replacement, processing repair and other methods to repair the wear on the bearing surface to restore the normal working condition of the bearing. However, for bearings that are severely worn or cannot be repaired, we need to replace them with new ones.
Bearing replacement is a more complicated task, which requires disassembling part of the vertical pump to obtain the bearings and installing new bearings. When replacing bearings, the condition of the bearing seat should be carefully checked to ensure that the bearing seat is not damaged or worn, so as not to affect the work of the new bearing. When installing new bearings, correct tools and methods should be used to ensure correct installation of the bearings and thus the normal operation of the vertical pump.
After replacing the bearings, we also need to conduct a series of tests and debugging to ensure the normal working performance of the vertical pump and check whether the temperature of the bearings has returned to the normal range. During testing and debugging, we can monitor the temperature changes of the bearings to ensure that the bearings no longer overheat.
When the temperature of the vertical pump thrust bearing is too high, we need to carefully check the lubrication system and the bearing itself to determine the cause of the problem. After determining the cause of the problem, we can choose to repair or replace the bearings to restore the normal operation of the vertical pump. Whether it is repairing or replacing bearings, careful operation and necessary testing and debugging are required to ensure that the working performance of the pump and the temperature of the bearings are restored to the normal range.
