Which one of the following sets of parameters should be monitored for determining safe operation of journal bearing?
Option (A)
Oil pressure, bearing metal temperature and bearing vibration
Option (B)
Bearing vibration, oil pressure and speed of shaft
Bearing metal temperature and oil pressure
Oil pressure and bearing vibration
Correct Option:
Question Solution:
Higher the value of temperature., viscosity affected and power lost in friction is more and pressure developed should be high enough to support the load. The vibration should be minimized to avoid breakage of film.
