Vertical Turbine Pump Shaft Journal Bearing Material, Types and Clearances
The rules of thumb often applied to journal bearings in horizontal machines don’t apply to vertical machines. Vertical turbine pumps are a common example. This webinar will explain the characteristics of bearing in these pumps and provide examples of manufacturers specifications. In addition, specialty bearing materials will be discussed in regard to applications, specifications and installation.
This webinar will be most useful for service center technicians and engineers. The content will be beneficial for supervisors and managers who are responsible for pump failure analysis and testing.
