Vertical Bearing Systems and Setting End Play
This presentation looks at various configurations of vertical motor thrust bearing arrangements. It focuses on the reason for having or not having end play, what that end play should be and how to get there. Some pitfalls of setting end play such as internal bearing clearance, spring loaded bearings and back-to-back bearing sets also are examined.
This presentation is most useful for service center and field technicians, service center managers, and engineers involved in the disassembly and reassembly of vertical motors with thrust bearings.
