Atlantic’s Turbine Jacking Oil Pumps
Part Number AF-11456
The Atlantic Difference: Isolating Checkball Piston Pumps
- Allows for independent fixed pressure and flow into each injection point along the rotor shaft
- Now all injection points receive the required flow and pressure even if other injection points have insufficient backpressure
Atlantic’s Isolated Output Jacking Oil Systems Features:
- Pump flow options from 2 GPM to 18 GPM
- Up to 8 forced pressure outlets per pump
- Pressures up to 4000 PSI
- Redundant pump set option
- Independent pressure & flow settings
- Filtration options down to 2 microns
How Do Turbine Jacking Oil Pumps Work?
Essentially, they lift heavy turbine rotor shafts until self-lubrication (hydrodynamic lubrication) is attained or the turbine itself is in turning gear. Specifically, the heavy rotor is prevented from rubbing against the bearing’s white metal or babbit bedding area at low speeds through the production of a hydrostatic oil film when the rotational speed is too low to produce a hydrodynamic oil film. This hydrostatic film reduces the break-away torque during run-up of the turbine rotor during high frictionstart up, shut down and slow speed (turning gear) periods.
