Thrust Capabilities For Vertical Units

Most vertical eddy-current couplings have limited external downthrust load capabilities when provided with standard bearing arrangements. Typical values are listed in Table 2 for the sizes listed in Table 1. Bearing life is an important factor, and the values shown are based on a minimum life of five years in accordance with manufacturer's standards at an average output speed of 85% of input speed. Bearings are angular-contact ball type with grease lubrication. Where higher thrust values are encountered or where longer bearing life or adherence to ABMA life standards must be met, spherical roller bearings or platetype hydrodynamic thrust bearings with oil lubrication can be furnished.
