Bearings & Pedestals

Over the course of its history, EME has designed and analyzed numerous bearing and pedestal sets for turbo generators.  The bearings used, as well as their position within the pedestal can have a dramatic effect on the operating characteristics of the machine.  Using sophisticated software, and by working with our vendors, we are able to determine and analyze the characteristics in a bearing’s design, such as:

  • Minimum film thickness
  • Flow rate
  • Temperature rise
  • Oil pressure
  • Stiffness and damping coefficients

Our talented engineers then evaluate these parameters based on calculated acceptance criteria, making design changes if needed.
