Bearing Temperature
« on: May 26, 2021, 07:14:14 AM »
Does shaft temperature of a centrifugal pump, affects bearing heat load?
I feel the fluid temperature is conducted through shaft to bearing, and that will give increased heat load on bearings. So better one should keep fluid temperature check, if unusual bearing temperature rise without known abnormalities.

In one of our high speed aeration motors we use a c3 class bearing that has a greater tollerance to take into acount heat genrated in the bearing races caused by very high motor shaft speeds.
The bearing does swell due to thermal expansion and causes reduction in the max shaft speed when the motor temp increases.
