BLO BEARINGS

ROBINSON BLO BEARINGS — FOR ULTIMATE RELIABILITY Robinson has been manufacturing high-quality fans and blowers since 1892. So naturally, we know a thing or two about the critical components. When performance and reliability demands increase, the need for robust bearings increases as well. That’s why we created Robinson BLO Bearings for high-speed fan applications. BLO Bearing Features: Two-bearing unit ensures precision alignment of bearing inserts Includes two single-row, deep groove ball bearings (Alternate bearing combinations available upon request.) Higher speed capabilities than separate pillow block housings Ideal for fans and other overhung rotating equipment Heavy cast iron construction Oil lubrication Shaft size ranges from 65 mm to 100 mm Complete BLO line acquired from DodgeBaldorABB Manufactured in the USA “Calpine cannot thank Robinson Fans enough for the upgrade AIG blower fans for our LM6000 Package – they have been nothing short of exceptional. Prior to installing the upgraded fan with the oil bath bearing, our service life on the bearings were very short lived (measured in weeks). They were very unreliable and costly to repair. Since we have installed the upgraded fans with the BLO bearing the only maintenance needed is to change the oil every six months and that’s it. If there are any doubts on whether the upgrade is worth the money give me a call because it is!” — Mike Buchanan, Mechanic Calpine Corporation, Yuba City Energy Center

Industrial Dampers

INDUSTRIAL DAMPERS FOR HIGH-SPEED FAN EQUIPMENT Robinson has provided fans and dampers for industry since 1892. In the early years, the company built equipment primarily for coal mine ventilation. In the 1930s, experience in high-temperature applications was acquired as a result of units built for brick-drying operations. As its customer list has expanded to steel, cement, aluminum, pulp and paper, fertilizer, glass, chemical, coal preparation and utility industries, Robinson’s experience and expertise in building dampers have steadily increased. Input from Robinson’s field servicemen enables the company to handle the hot, dirty and corrosive jobs as well as high-efficiency, clean-air applications. Today, this experience is available to industry in the form of long-lasting, low-maintenance dampers. Industrial Dampers are engineered for: Air performance control Power savings System isolationshutdown High tempdust-laden conditions Air dilution systems Low leakage applications Engineering Design Robinson’s staff of mechanical engineers uses the same technical expertise in the design of custom dampers that is so critical in the design of high-speed rotating fan equipment. Important design considerations include: Shaft deflection Torque requirements (for sizing actuator) Frame stiffness Bolt sizing and spacing Bearing selection Shaft seal design Low leakage seals (when required) Material selection Correct damper design involves use of laboratory test data and years of field experience in addition to textbook engineering and computer-aided calculations. Laboratory Testing An AMCA-registered laboratory with prototype fans of nearly every design makes it possible for Robinson to carefully test damper designs. In addition to air performance characteristics and effects on fan performance, prototype testing of damper torque under load is also done at Robinson. Test setups of new damper designs include cycling tests involving reliability of the actuatorlinkage system. Leakage tests use AMCA design ducts for accurate volume measurement at various pressure drops. Quality Assurance Robinson’s quality assurance program was developed as a result of involvement with large public utilities over the years. In-house procedures for handling “critical” dimensions, welding fit-up, weld procedures, etc., are well established. Nondestructive testing includes magnetic-particle and dye-penetrant inspection expertise as well as in-house X-raying of butt-welds . Hold points for customer witnessing andor inspection can be set up if desired on critical jobs. Critical path scheduling includes all such quality assurance procedures, which are integrated into the production schedule. Product Types Louvered Damper 15% leakage (typical). Special (1% leakage).
