Bearing Compatibility Tester
Tests the bearing compatibility (lacquering, deposits, corrosion) and
stability of turbine lubricants when subjected to an endurance test. Consists
of bearing housing assembly with test bearing and support bearings, hydraulic
loading device, oil circulation system with thermostatic and hydrostatic
control, and powerful 5hp variable speed drive system. Digital LCD controls
monitor oil pressure, oil temperature and spindle rpm, and a built-in strip
chart recorder plots oil temperature at three different points—at the bearing
housing, in-line, and in the reservoir. Equipped with overtemperature and low
pressure cut-off switches and a cartridge oil filter for convenient ‘flush
run’ operation. All components are mounted in a sturdy angle iron frame. A
removable steel guard protects drive train components.
