Abstract : The results of the liquid-potassium journalbearing test program for the SPUR turbogenerator are presented. The activities described include the design, assembly and checkout of the bearing test rig, and the results of a successfully completed 250-h endurance test on a hydrodynamic journal bearing using 600 F liquid potassium as the lubricant. Unidirectional loads from 6 to 25 lbs were applied to the bearing operating at a speed of 24,000 rpm. (Author)
