Shaft Elongation :
- The Shaft Elongation is a measure of deformation that occurs before a material eventually breaks when subjected to a tensile load.
- The pump shaft transmits the drivetorque to the impellers to centrifugal pumps or to the displacement elements of rotary positive displacement pumps.
- The shaft of reciprocating positive displacement pumps takes the shape of a crankshaft or a camshaft.
- Then, Pump shafts are stainless steel bars and that can vary in shape depending on the pump application.
- These bars are manufactured to a higher standard than common steel bars.
- While misalignment has no measurable effect on motor efficiency, correct shaft alignment ensures the smooth, efficient transmission of power from the motor to the driven equipment.
- Incorrect alignment occurs when the centerlines of the motor and then the driven equipment shafts are not in line with each other.
- Transmission shafts are used to transmit power between the source and the machine absorbing power. For Example, Counter shafts and Line shafts.
- Machine shafts are the integral part of the machine itself. For Example, Crankshaft.
- Axle shaft and Spindle shaft.
- The formula for the calculation is given below.
- Shaft Elongation = (Total Dynamic Head * Setting from Head Base to Top of Bowls * Bowl Thrust Factor * 12) / (Shaft Cross-Section * 29000000).
- Beside the formula this calculator works.
How to Calculate ?
- First, Enter the Total Dynamic Head. Then,
- Second, Enter the Setting from Head Base to Top of Bowls. Then,
- Third, Enter the Bowl Thrust Factor. Then,
- Fourth, Enter the Shaft Cross Section.
