General Specifications Timken industrial seals offer a leading combination of quality, technology and high performance. However, there are additional considerations - such as shaft finish, temperatures and other operating factors -that can help our seals achieve even higher levels of performance. We recommend the following practices to ensure that you are maximizing the efficiency and the life of your bearings and machinery. For specific application assistance, contact your Timken sales representative. Shaft Finish The amount of contact between the shaft surface and the sealing element, and...

Engineering Data Engineering Data Comparing Shaft Lead – Lead Angle The lead of a shaft is compared with other shafts of differing diameters by calculating the lead angle. This is found by dividing the string advance (in inches) by the product of the shaft circumference (in inches), and the number of revolutions required to advance the string the measured amount. LEAD ANGLE = ARCTAN x String Advance (Shaft circumference) x (number of turns) For example, a string will advance 0.300" in 30 seconds on a 4.000" shaft rotating at 60 RPM. The lead angle equals 0.0456° = 2' 44.1". A 2" shaft with...

Dynamic Runout Dynamic runout is the amount by which a shaft, at the sealing surface, does not rotate around the true center. You can measure dynamic runout by holding a dial indicator against the shaft surface while it is slowly rotated. The resulting measurement is called a total indicator reading, or TIR. See Figure 6. Table 4: Maximum Pressure Limits Recommended Bore Finish = 100 microinches Ra (2.54 micrometers) or smoother.

Table 7: Shaft and Bore Tolerances for Bearing Isolators Temperature Conversion Formulas Surface Speed Shaft finish, misalignment and runout, lubrication, pressure and seal design are all factors in determining safe operating speeds, and become more important the more the shaft speed increases. To determine the appropriate surface speed for your application(s), use the formulas below or See Appendix F for the surface speed chart. Because surface speed limits vary with seal design, also refer to the product listings for limits on specific Timken industrial seals. Surface Speed (f/m) = Shaft...

Equipment Inspection and Preparation Before installing any lip seal, equipment should be thoroughly inspected. Follow the specifications below for best results: Shaft Surface Finish [Roughness Average or AA (Arithmetic Average)] • With the exception of PS-1 (Model 61), all seals should have a surface finish within 10-20 p in. (0.25-0.50 pm). • For PS-1 (Model 61), the surface finish should be within 4-8 p in (0.10-0.20 pm). • The surface finish direction of all seals must be perpendicular to the shaft axis of rotation. Bore Surface Finish, Ra ([Roughness Average or AA (Arithmetic...

Installation Instructions Installation Instructions Split Seal Installation Ambient pressure/ non-flooded applications only Installation Methods • Apply a thin coat of lubricant to the seal lip and shaft. • Split the seal along the axis of rotation (shown in Figure 12) and place the seal around the shaft. Installation Method A Thru Bore: Installation tool bottoms on machined face Installation Method B Thru Bore: Seal bottoms on machined bore shoulder Figure 12: Split Seal Separation Installation Method C Thru Bore: Installation tool bottoms on shaft • Beginning with the split ends, insert...

Timken Bearing Isolators Installation Instructions Equipment Preparation Before installing an isolator, all equipment should be inspected. First, disconnect all power to the machinery and follow standard safety procedures to avoid personal injury or equipment damage during installation. Second, inspect the shaft and bore surfaces. The shaft finish should be better than 64 µin (1.63 µm) with minimal lead, but a polished surface is not required. The bore surface should be 64 µin (2.54 µm). Both the shaft and bore should have a chamfer or other edge relief to prevent the o-ring from shearing....
