Title
(EN) TILTING PAD JOURNAL BEARING
(FR) PALIER LISSE A PATINS OSCILLANTS
Abstract
(EN)
A tilting pad journal bearing (12) has each bearing pad (151) etc. supported for rocking relative to the housing (13), and prevented from being dragged about the circumference of a rotating shaft (10), by a hemispherically mounted platform body (23) on which the bearing pad sits. A radially extending spigot (40) extends from the platform body and locates in an aperture (42) of the bearing pad to prevent its circumferential displacement. To retain the platform body in its recess, the spigot (40) takes the form of a restraint member extending through the pivot body and with clearance fit through the recess and housing, permitting the platform body to pivot to the extent necessary for bearing operation.
(FR)
Palier (12) lisse à patins oscillants, dont chaque patin (151 etc.) est supporté, de manière à osciller par rapport au corps (13), et retenu, de façon à ne pas tourner autour de l'arbre (10) rotatif, par un bloc (23) de support hémisphérique. Un pivot (40) s'étend radialement à partir du bloc de support et vient se loger dans une ouverture (42) du patin afin d'empêcher le déplacement circonférentiel de celui-ci. Afin de retenir le corps de support dans son logement, le pivot (40) prend la forme d'un élément de retenue qui s'étend à travers le corps pivotant, et est ajusté avec un certain jeu dans le logement et dans le corps, permettant ainsi au bloc de support de pivoter selon un angle nécessaire au bon fonctionnement du palier.
