Abstract:

Graphite bearings operating under conditions of lubrication with nitric acid, coupled with tins of stainless chrome nickel austenite ferrite steel type EI-654 are investigated, and an equation is produced for determination of the intensity of wear and durability of their operation, indicating that the wear of graphite bearings is influenced more by the specific pressure than by the circular rotation of the shaft. The wear of graphite bearings is almost proportional to the cube of specific pressure and the square of the circular rotation rate of the pin. The equation differs from those to be found in the literature in its good agreement with experimental data and simplicity of application for practical calculations. Author
