sup][11],[39] Metal debris from impingement could fall inside the bearing surface and disrupt the lubrication film, which would bring about an increased wear rate of the ceramic surfaces, thus producing ceramic debris.
SKF's engineers have developed the current version of the new model using tribological models of bearing surface behaviour under different operating conditions, and validated their models through extensive laboratory testing with large groups of bearings.
Standard cross-linked polyethylene, vitamin-E cross-linked polyethylene, carbon fiber PEEK, and titanium carbide all are new materials that require additional tests such as third-body wear testing, particulate analysis, particle counts, morphology, and leaching studies (traditional polyethylene bearing surfaces do not require these tests).
The only finding of lymphocytic involvement in a metal-on-polyethylene bearing surface was found in a study performed by Svensson and coworkers, (27) who described the presence of a pseudotumor-like soft-tissue mass containing an extremely high-amount rate of metal debris, due to taper corrosion.
New technology has been developed to perform crankshaft crankpin bearing surface grinding directly in the engine housing.
The customer is Bjorvika Infrastruktur AS and the contract includes piling to rock in water, establishing a concrete bearing surface, building up differences in levels and construction of top surface on the promenade pier.
Metal-on-metal is an alternative bearing surface allowing improved longevity and the use of larger femoral heads that confer increased inherent stability (Allen & Beaule 2008).
When in operation the hydrodynamic journal bearing, described by AxFlow as a fluid boundary forming principal, eliminates contact between the shaft and the bearing in the pump by hydroplaning above the bearing surface on a cushion of liquid.
Parts are assured a 100% bearing surface in all directions and optimum protection from shock.
Ron Power's Ruger half-cock notch hammer not only restores some of the old Ruger nostalgia, but is a far superior hammer offering more bearing surface for the hammer pin.
