MICHELL TILTING PAD BEARING APPARATUS

RANGE OF EXPERIMENTS TO BE CARRIED OUT:
1. To study the michell tilting pad bearing
2. To plot the pressure variation curve in longitudinal and transverse direction of pad at various speeds and pad inclination.
3. To study the cavitation phenomenon
TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION:
It consists of a M.S. bearing mounted freely on steel shaft . This shaft is fixed directly on to a motor shaft. The speed of the D.C. Motor is finally controlled by a D.C. Dimmer stat. The bearing has equal spaced pressure tapings around its circumference & on the top side of the bearing. The two sides of bearing are closed with two M.S. Plates & sealed with a gasket packing to avoid leakage. Oil film pressures are indicated in a manometer board reading directly in head of oil. Clear flexible plastic tubes are clamped on the manometer board are connected to the tappings spaced around bearing, & thus permit the bearing to turn freely. The oil reservoir can be adjusted at required height & connected to the bearing by flexible plastic tube. From this reservoir oil enters the bearing through this plastic tube
