The Unit to Study a Hydrodynamic Journal Bearing Assembly, "HJBA", is a horizontally sectioned hydrodynamic bearing. For an even transfer of the generated forces to the lower part of the bearing case, the bearings in said case are supported by a spherical surface.
The lubrication of the bearing is given by a loose lubrication ring. Commercial mineral oils may be used as lubricants.
The unit contains an auxiliary shaft that allows to make an ideal assembly and check the operation. The unit consists of a floating gasket to seal the shaft by the front face. The contact areas of the half-cases are sealed by using sealant putty, which does not harden, and prevents dirt from coming in from the outside.
The parts are supplied in an aluminum case with adequate protection. Teaching materials are also included, providing all the necessary information to carry out the different actions, information on the operation, structure and field of application of a journal bearing.
