This lab demonstration apparatus designed by lab cart is specifically used for performing the experiments for balancing a rotation mass system. The equipment comprises of a stainless steel shaft erected in a rectangular frame. A set of four blocks with a clamping arrangement is supplied. Each block is individually and independently clamped on the shaft, for static balancing. And for dynamic balancing, a moment polygon is created using relative weights and thereby measuring the angular and axial position of blocks. The blocks which were clamped on shaft are rotated using a motor to determine dynamic balance of the system. The balancing arrangement is provided with an angular scale and is suspended with chains for dynamic balancing.
SCOPE OF STUDY:
- To balance the masses statically and dynamically of a single rotating mass system.
- To observation of effect of unbalance in a rotating mass system.
Drive Motor : FHP Motor, variable speed, with speed controller.
Balancing weight : 4 Nos. of Stainless Steel with different sized eccentric mass for varying unbalance.
Rotating Shaft : Material Stainless Steel
Control Panel Features:
Variac, Standard make on-off switch, mains indicator & fuse etc.
*An ENGLISH instruction manual with elaborate experimental procedures and block diagram etc. shall be provided with the training system set-up
