Axial vibration on Press suction roll

Jack1954 ·
. I have a motor to a gearbox and gearbox output shaft coupled with a press suction roll. The roll is vibrating axially and started suddenly. My first thought pointed to a U-Joint in the shaft of this roll. U-Joint shaft replacement made no difference. I don’t think the drive side bearing cocked suddenly or the roll jumped out of alignment. I am thinking operations may have rotated the vacuum box inside and now it’s excited. Nothing is getting any worse and it’s mainly on the drive side.

Dear Vast Ocean, The pictures of thrust bearing taken in June 2016 look likely by electrical discharge damage. So, how about the journal conditions and have you checked the residual magnetism of rotor and fixed the root cause of thrust pad damage? if not yet, it could re-occur again. Please note that after you replace the thrust bearing, axial displacement reduce to normal value and then it increase. For the reason of radial vibration increase, I expect to see journal and thrust bearing...

Re: High axial displacements of BFW pump.

The other thing could make radial vibration change is due that change of axial position lead to change signal of probes (difference of mechanical and/or electrical run out).

Hi John, This pump uses a flexible coupling. The attached files are a cross section drawing and the pump curve. Hi Dinh, We not yet checked the clearance of throat bushing. One of thing makes the radial vibration increase is the axial shaft movement, the other one is rubbing issue. As I mention earlier, we not yet checked rotor condition. Regarding the journal conditions was good as the last inspection. Vast Ocean.
