Example (3) A journal bearing with a diameter of 200 mm and length 150 mm carries a
load pf 20 kn when the journal speed is 150 r.p.m. the diameter clearance is 0.0015. if
possible the bearing is to operate at 35 c ambient temp. without external cooling with
max. oil temp. of 90 c if external cooling is required it is to be as little as possible to min.
the required oil flow and heat exchanger size.
1) What type of oil do you recommend?
2) Will the bearing operate without external cooling
3) It the bearing operate without external cooling the determine the operating oil
trmp.?
4) If the bearing operate with external cooling , determine the amount of oil in
kg/min required to carry away the execess heat generated over heat dissipated
when the oil temp. rise from 85c to 90c when passing through the bearing

Here as we can see than the value of oil viscosity is very less so we can recommended the oil
which has low viscosity

## Heat dissipated (Qd) =CA (tb- ta) watt

We seen that the heat dissioated is after the heat generated when indicates that the bearing
will not operated without external cooling.

Example :- 4
Design of a journal bearing for cetftrifugal pump running at 1440rpm. The diameter of
journal is 100 mm and load on is bearing is 200kN. The factor ZN/P may be taken as 28
for centifrugal pump bearing. The bearing is running at 75c temp. and the atm. Temp is
30 c . the engey dissipation co effect is 875W/m^3/c. take diamante clearance is 0.1 mm.

C = 875 w/ m c

First of all lets find the length of the journal (l)

We know all that the bearing pressure,

Since the bearing pressure for the pump is 2.57 N/ mm , therefore the above value of P is
