#### Total Thrust Acting on Driver Thrust Bearing :

Total Thrust Acting on Driver Thrust Bearing
 Bowl Thrust Factor (lbs/ft of head) : Total Dynamic Head (ft) : Shaft Weight (lbs/ft) : Setting from Head Base to Top of Bowls (ft) : Result :
##### Definiton :
• Bearings that give radial positioning to the rotor are known as line bearings, and those that locate the rotor axially are called thrust bearings.
• In most applications, the thrust bearings actually serve both as thrust and radial bearings.
• Axial bearings, or thrust bearings, are designed to withstand force in the same direction as the shaft.
• In some applications, ceramic bearings, a type of radial bearing, are used to withstand high rotational speeds.
• The axial thrust is the resultant force of all the axial forces (F) acting on the pump rotor.
• A force that is applied along a bearing’s axis.
##### Uses :
• Thrust bearings support the axial thrust of both horizontal and vertical shafts.
• Then, The functions are to prevent the shaft from drifting in the axial direction and to transfer thrust loads applied on the shaft.
• Balls, cylindrical rollers, tapered rollers, spherical rollers and needle rollers are the most common rolling elements used for thrust applications.
• To keep the rotor in an exact position in the casing.
• To absorb axial thrust on the rotor due to steam flow.
##### Formula :
• The formula for the calculation is given below.
• Total Thrust Acting on Driver Thrust Bearing = (Bowl Thrust Factor * Total Dynamic Head) + (Shaft Weight * Setting from Head Base to Top of Bowls).
• Beside the formula this calculator works.
##### How to Calculate ?
• First, Enter the Bowl Thrust Factor. Then,
• Second, Enter the Total Dynamic Head. Then,
• Third, Enter the Shaft Weight. Then,
• Fourth, Enter the Setting from Head Base to Top of Bowls. Then,
• Click “Calculate” to get the result and then if you want to clear values Click “Reset” in addition to clear the values.
• Finally, follow these steps to get the result.
