Diesel Engines

The information below is provided as representative of medium HP Diesel engines of four, six, and eight cylinders. Many other sizes and types are available and variations on four, six, and eight cylinder engines, such as in stroke, bore, and displacement—giving higher or lower HP ranges, may be obtained.

Performance Curves are for maximum, rated, and continuous performance of power units with full equipment, including radiator fan. Full equipment, as utilized in determining data as shown, include air cleaner, lubricating oil pump, fuel transfer pump, fuel injection pumps, jacket-water pump

Determining Power Factor

Where power is purchased, and is billed on a power factor basis, the installed power company meters will provide a means of determining overall plant power factor. This may be the average power factor for the billing period, usually a month, or the power factor at time of maximum kilowatt demand, or other values depending on the kind of power factor clause and the metering method used. When power company meters are not available, or for purposes of surveys and checks on power factor on distribution lines or individual loads within the plant, the following power-factor and load-measuring methods

Types of Speed Reducers

The Speed Reducer eliminates unnecessary transmission equipment, thus providing compact drives, and assures positive performance. It is made with speed reduction ratios up to 4,000 to 1 and with right angle (vertical or horizontal), or parallel shafts for either light or heavy duty. The information which follows gives applications and other pertinent data on the various general types.

Right Angle Drive Type “T” Speed Reducers are manufactured with reduction ratios ranging from 10 to 1 up to 100 to 1. These units are equipped with hardened steel, ground thread worms and phosphor-bronze

Thickener Drive Speed Reducer

The Integral Lift Vertical Worm Gear-Box Speed Reducer is used on Center and Side Air-lift Agitators, Hydroclassifiers, and on thickeners in many mills and industrial plants where it is necessary to have a simple, compact, totally – enclosed, self-lubricated reduction unit. This unit is widely used to step down speeds of high-speed motors to the slow speed required by many ore dressing and industrial machines. It has particular application on mechanisms where a positive lifting

Belt and Chain Drives

Multiple V-Belt Drives are used for transmitting from fractional to 6000 horsepower constant speed, and to 300 horsepower adjustable speed. The V-belt design utilizes angled sides to transmit power through a V-grooved pulley by wedge contact between the angled sides of the belt and the angled sides of the groove. The multiple V-belt drive has supplanted the flat belt drive on many transmission drives because it is capable of pulling loads over very small grooved pulleys or sheaves without slip; they are smooth-starting, absorb shock loads, easy on bearings, compact, operate on short center

Flotation Blowers

Rotary Blower for pressure and vacuum service is universally used with gas or oil burners, furnaces forges, ovens, etc. Two inter-engaging impellers, rotating in opposite directions draw air into the pockets between the impellers and the case, and force this air into the discharge pipe. The amount of air displaced by these impellers at each revolution is definitely known, so that an R.P.M. may be selected to deliver any required amount of air.Flotation Blower cf_741_nav Rotary Blowers are simple in design, without valves, sliding vanes, springs, or other delicate parts to wear, break, or become
