Project background
Project Background

  • Objective:

    • Develop a bearing dynamic similarity test rig to more carefully investigate the dynamics of the Dresser-Rand floating ring main compressor bearings.

    • Design the rig such that it can incorporate all journal bearings for the purpose of fault detection research at RIT.


What is a journal bearing
What is a Journal Bearing?

  • Journal, or plain bearings, consist of a shaft or journal which rotates freely in a supporting sleeve with lubricant film to provide a low friction surface

  • A floating ring journal bearing is similar, but consists of an additional component (the ring) that floats in the lubricant between the journal and the sleeve, creating two lubricant layers


Past projects
Past Projects

  • P09452: Installed Dresser-Rand ESH-1 reciprocating compressor

  • P12453: Installed a range of sensors on the compressor and expanded the capabilities of the data acquisition (DAQ) system

  • P13453: Dresser-Rand Compressor Wireless Instrumentation. Monitored health of main crank bearing on the reciprocation compressor

  • P13505: Designed roller bearing failure test stand.

  • Markus Holzenkamp’s Thesis


Problem statement
Problem Statement

  • Current State

    • Bearing monitoring is currently performed on the compressor itself

    • No current test rig exists on site at RIT

  • Desired State

    • Two system level design proposals; one full scale model and one scaled down version

    • Working concept to remain on site at RIT to allow for further research and development

  • Project Goals

    • Allows for quick change-over

    • Control and measure the following:

      • Shaft speed

      • Dynamic/Variable Load Profiles

      • Oil Temperature and Pressure

      • Gap measurement between journal and sleeve

  • Constraints

    • Budget of $5,000

    • Understanding of floating journal ring bearings


Project deliverables
Project Deliverables

  • Two system design proposals by SLDR

    • A full scale design replicating the ESH-1 compressor

    • A small scale rig that will give useful data while saving space and controlling project costs

  • Detailed design of selected proposal by DDR

  • A functional test rig capable of dynamically loading a journal bearing in two axes

    • Test rig must be small enough to install at RIT

    • The oiling system must replicate that of the Dresser-Rand ESH-1 compressor


Project deliverables1
Project Deliverables

  • Data collection system

    • Measurement of gap between journal and sleeve

    • Measurement of vibration experienced by bearing

    • Monitoring of oil temperature, pressure, and flow rate during tests

    • Condition monitoring must interface with existing DAQ

  • Test data proving functionality of equipment

  • Additional desired features

    • Quick bearing replacement

    • Low cost to operate and maintain
