General Description

This module allows the visualization of the radial pressure distribution in a journal bearing with hydrodynamic lubrication.

The "MEMT-1" module consists of a journal bearing with hydrodynamic lubrication, a freely moving bearing housing with 13 manometric tubes that allow to visualize the radial pressure distribution. The journal bearing movement and the oil film can be seen through a transparent plastic bearing housing. The pressure distribution in the journal bearing is measured by 13 manometric tubes using the height of each column of liquid.

The gap width can be adjusted by the movable bearing housing with a micrometer screw.

The lubricant that enables the visualization of pressure distribution in the journal bearing is contained in a tank. The distribution of pressure on the journal bearing can be determined at different speeds, loads and bearing gap width.
