As a global supplier to world leading pumps and compressors manufacturingcompanies, NSK has the experience and understanding of helping its customersto manage their costs and improve production efficiencies.Pumps and Compressors are used in a wide range ofprocess industries where requirements are for bearingsoffering long life in order to increase Mean TimeBetween Failures (MTBF). Downtime in productionprocesses leads to huge costs and loss of productivity.At the same time, Pump and Compressor manufacturersare looking for more compact machines leading todownsizing of bearings.The combination of increased life time and downsizingplaces increasingly severe demands on ball and rollerbearings; and satisfying those needs call for bearingsof the highest quality and reliability.All the products developed by NSK specifically forthese applications, are featured in this brochure.In addition to our standard product range, ourresearch and development centres around the worldcontinue to develop the next generation of applicationdedicated products by understanding the uniquerequirements of our customers so that we can helpthem to continuously improve their machines. Forscrew compressors, we have developed cylindricalroller bearings and HPS angular contact ball bearingsfitted with a patented plastic cage in Linear PolyPhenylene Sulfide (L-PPS) offering superiorcharacteristics compared to standard plastic cages.For pump applications, depending on the pump type,bearings can run under axial loads, radial loads orcombined loads; small to high speeds and differentlubrication conditions. In any case, conditions arequite tough and the need for high MTBF is a challengefor bearings.Our team of application engineers, local to youroperation, are in contact with OEM R&D teams helpingthem to find new bearing solutions at each stage oftheir projects. The experience accumulated after yearsof involvement in pump and compressor applicationsis the key for mutual success.For compressor applications, bearings are subjectedto high axial and radial loads. They play a key role asthey have to ensure correct positioning of the rotorsin the axial and radial direction. This is extremelyimportant as good positioning of the rotors is directlylinked to compressor efficiency. Therefore, axial andradial deflection of the bearings must be kept assmall as possible.We invite you to have a look through our uniquerange of innovative problem solving products and ifyou have an interest in any of our products, pleasecontact your NSK Sales office.Bearings for PumPs and ComPressors 5

Lng Pump BearingsLNG pump bearings are employed as upper and lower support bearings on themainshaft of a motor which drives the special pumps used for receiving anddischarging LNG to road tankers and storage tanks. The bearings, immersedin Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) at -162 C, are using the cryogenic liquid as alubricant while operating at speeds up to 3,600 rev/min.Bearing Nomenclature6315Example:HT35DC3Basic bearing numberStainless steelFluororesin cageRadial clearanceTo cope with these tough conditions, NSK developeddeep groove* ball bearings using special materials.Rings and balls are made from martensitic stainlesssteel to provide corrosion resistance. The bearingcage is made from Fluororesin, a material that offersthe extremely useful property of being self-lubricating,even at very low temperatures. This is significantbecause during operation, the cage – a two piece unitheld together by special rivets – actually transfers athin film of Fluororesin from the retainer pocket tothe ball, and then to the raceway surface, maintaininggood lubrication conditions.

Special Deep Groove Ball Bearings for PumpsCreep-Free BearingsNSK introduces a new bearing series that is indispensable in the pump free-endbearing position, and for any applications with creep problems. O-ring compressionprovides dramatically enhanced creep resistance. As the boundary dimensions areidentical, the housing does not need to be reworked when replacing standard bearings.This results in reduced cost of the conversion.Bearing NomenclatureCXExample:6203ZZC3Creep-Free Bearing(with O-ring)Basic bearing numberSeal typeRadial clearanceBearing borediameterBearing outerdiameterBearing widthd mmD mmB mmCr (N)C0r 191417211518231619254 5505 1008 1005 1006 8009 7005 6007 65011 4006 0009 55013 6009 40012 80015 90010 10014 00020 60013 20019 50026 70016 00025 70033 50016 80029 10040 50020 90031 50053 0001 9702 3903 4502 3703 0504 2002 8303 7505 4503 2504 8006 6505 0006 6007 9005 8507 85011 2008 30011 30015 00010 30015 30019 20011 50017 90024 00015 20020 40032 00010121517202530354045Bearing load ratingsRecommen dedHousing Fits*G6 or H7Bearing numberOpen CX-6209CX-6309* Although the recommended fits are G6 or H7, G6 is specified when conditions prioritize location under light pre-load.** Low-contact seal available for seal type bearings.

1. Structure and performance of Creep-Free BearingsCompression of the O-rings, which are mounted in twogrooves on the outer ring, improve creep prevention. Nospecial machining is required; bearings can be used withthe same housing as standard bearings. In creep limitload tests, the more housing clearance is reduced, thegreater the improvement in creep prevention. This is dueto the compression of the O-ring mounted in the outerring.Structure of the Creep-Free BearingO-RingCreep limit load test (example: 6204)Creep resistance, N700600Creep-Free BearingConventional bearing (without O-ring)500400300200100005101520253035Housing clearance (diameter) (μm)Application example Pump Motor Bearings402.

Case Studies –Bearing Solutions for Pumps & CompressorsPreventing Creep on Submersible Pumps BearingsSubmersible pumps are widely used in a variety ofapplications such as construction, waste water,mining, agriculture and general industry.Most submersible pumps comprise of a verticalelectric drive motor coupled directly to the impeller.They are required to operate for long periods withthe minimum amount of maintenance.Bearing ArrangementThe bottom, locating bearing, is generally a doublerow angular contact ball bearing or a pair of angularcontact bearings. This reacts the axial load and radialload generated by the pumped fluid. The bearing isheavily loaded and needs to be correctly selected toreach target life. The top free bearing, is generally adeep groove ball bearing. This takes a light radialload. C3 clearance is generally used to compensatefor clearance reduction due to heat generation fromthe electric motor.NSK SolutionNSK Creep-Free bearings offer more: with theirintegrated double O-rings, they provide bettercreep prevention. They provide submersible pumpmanufacturers with the following advantages:›› Very good creep prevention›› Easy assembly. The Creep-Free bearings can befitted with a loose housing bore tolerance›› Housing is re-usable as very little abrasion occurson the housing bore›› Cost reduction. Pump manufacturers do not needto machine a groove in the housing bore andinsert their own O-ring.Traditional submersible pumpTop bearingCreep Phenomenon on Top BearingsThe lightly loaded top bearing should, theoretically,have a very long life. However, its life is sometimesdrastically reduced by creep. The combined effect oflight radial load and loose fit in the housing canresult in creep between outer ring and housing.Creep is a phenomenon where relative slippageoccurs between fitted surfaces. Creep produces apolish on the bearing ring surface, occasionallyaccompanied by scoring or wear.CountermeasureOne popular countermeasure used by pumpmanufacturers is to machine an annular groovein the housing bore and to insert an O-ring. TheO-ring prevents creep between bearing outsidediameter and housing.Bottom bearingO-ringCreep-Free bearing22

Refrigerant Screw Compressors working with AmmoniaRefrigerant compressors are designed specificallyfor air conditioning, heat pumping, and industrialrefrigeration. Refrigerant compressors are specificallydesigned to be the heart of an industrial cooling orair-conditioning system (HVAC). They are integralcomponents of the refrigeration cycle, in whichrefrigerant gases are cyclically evaporated andcondensed. There are three main types of refrigerantcompressors: scroll, screw, and piston.Bearing ArrangementRefrigerant screw compressors comprise of twoscrews in mesh. Gas enters at the inlet side and isgradually compressed along the screw. Compressedgas leaves through the outlet port. At the inlet, acylindrical roller bearing is used on both male andfemale screw to carry the radial load. At the outlet,a cylindrical roller bearing is also used for radialloads. However, it is combined with a set of angularcontact ball bearings which reach the high axial loadassociated with the compression. The commonrefrige rant gases such as Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)are now banned substances. New compressors arenow exposed to Hydrochlorofluorocarbons (HCFCs) orHydrofluorocarbons (HFCs). The problem of globalwarming and ozone layer depletion is driving the useof “natural” refrigerants such as carbon dioxide (CO2)or ammonia (NH3).and a decrease in the strength which can lead tocage failure. Brass cages show corrosion crack whenin contact with ammonia. In the past, cages made ofcast iron were used for ammonia compressors. Castiron cages show good results but are not popular andare quite expensive.NSK SolutionFor refrigerant screw compressors NSK offers itsL-PPS cage for both cylindrical roller bearings andangular contact ball bearings. The L-PPS cage providessuperior heat and wear resistance, cage strength andchemical stability characteristics that change little,even if exposed to compressor oil, refrigerants orammonia gas.Typical Refrigerant – Screw CompressorTroubles with Cages when using AmmoniaWhen using ammonia as a refrigerant, the oil usedfor lubrication should be miscible with ammonia.Consequently synthetic oils are necessary. Polyamidecages which are quite popular in screw compressorsbearings are not suitable when operating above70 C with synthetic oils (which could containadditives). Ammonia also has an adverse effecton polyamide. There is a rapid ageing of the cageBearings for Pumps and Compressors 23
