About the Edition

The forces on a rotor due to asymmetric pressure distributions resulting from a single gland non-circular labyrinth seal in a circular outer casing are analyzed for the purpose of understanding the possible causes of synchronous vibration due to seal intolerance. A lumped parameter model is developed for flow in the azimuthal direction inside the seal gland. The sealing knife imperfections causing the non-circularity may be due to manufacturing defects or in service ware. The resulting continuity and momentum equations are solved using a regular linear perturbation technique. Results from this model indicate under what conditions seal imperfections can generate forces of the same order of magnitude as rotor mass unbalance.

Seal force is an important factor in turbomachineries. The paper puts forward an expanded seal force identification model. A seal test rig with many sets of seals was set up. The distributed seal force in the cylinder was equivalent to the two selected planes by using double-plane unbalance force identification theory in rotordynamics. To consider the complex vibration of cylinder with Author: Dan Sun, Yan Ting Ai, Wan Fu Zhang, Jian Gang Yang. A labyrinth seal is cross-sectioned in Fig. A. There is a rotating mechanical shaft seal “mech seal” located in the “head.” See Fig. The head of the seal will be bolted to the bottom of the pump intake. Well fluid moving into the pump intake will be on the top of this shaft seal.

Rotordynamic and leakage data are presented for a see-through tooth-on-rotor (TOR) labyrinth seal with comparisons to a see-through tooth-on-stator (TOS) labyrinth seal. Measurements for both seals are also compared to predictions from XLLaby. Both seals have identical diameters and can be considered as relatively long labyrinth by: 1.

Williston. [Show full abstract] labyrinth seal with a flat, stator mounted land. The impact of different flow coefficients for the first and second knives on the rotordynamic coefficients was found.

For all labyrinth seal designs, transient computational-fluid-dynamics solutions were carried out at the same operating condition: inlet pressure of bar, pressure ratio ofrotational.

The labyrinth seal of a large scales steam turbine is taken as an object of analysis and a 3D model with eccentric rotor is solved to obtain the rotordynamic force components. The rotordynamic force is derived by integrating the pressure on the rotor surface. Evaluation formula is formed from the results of numerical calculation, which is used Cited by: 4.

Fluid Flow Equations for Rotordynamic Flows in Seals and Leakage Paths Fluid-induced rotordynamic forces produced by the fluid in an annular seal or in the leakage passage surrounding the shroud of a pump or turbine, are known to contribute substantially to the potential excitation forces acting on the rotor.

The present research. age from labyrinth seals, so they design the clearances of the labyrinth seal to be small. However, if the clearances are small, self-excited rotor vibra-tions are caused by the flow forces of the working fluid.

The origins of the exciting forces are at present only partially known as a steam whirl Size: KB. fluid film forces and the inertia force of the stator mass.

As data reduction to rotordynamic coefficients requires the fluid film force by itself, the stator inertia force must be subtracted from the load cell readings. With the mass of the stator known, this is done as follows: where Fy = -Fy + ms(d2/dt2)(-Fy/Ksy)File Size: KB.

The carry over coefficient is found to be a function of the geometry and non-dimensional flow parameters of the labyrinth seal tooth configuration. Carry over coefficient increases with tooth clearance, tooth width and Reynolds Number. The variation with shaft speed does not follow a certain pattern always and varies with shaft speed.

uniflorm flow are rotating blades, blade tip shrouds, and labyrinth seals. Such forces may even be correctable by current mass balancing techniques if the force and phase of the fluid effects are compatible with the modal,hapes,selected for balancing.

Rotors in high-performance steam turbines experience a significant axial shifting during starting and stopping processes due to thermal expansion, for example.

This axial shifting could significantly alter the flow pattern and the flow-induced rotordynamic forces in labyrinth seals, which in turn, can considerably affect the rotor-seal system by: 8.
