Description

The Static & Dynamic Balancing Apparatus may be used effectively in both the classroom and the laboratory for simple demonstrations and experiments in the dynamic balancing of rotating and reciprocating systems.

The rotating system is essentially a shaft, mounted on bearings, supported in a rigid frame, and driven by a small variable speed motor attached to the frame. Four discs, to which masses may be attached, are rigidly secured to the shaft. Each disc is suitably drilled and the sets of holes are positioned so that various conditions of un-balance in a rotating system can be simulated and the normal methods used to determine the magnitude and position of the counter-balance masses.

The unit is supported on springs attached to the main support frame so that the oscillations set up by any unbalanced forces may be observed.

The centre section of the shaft is in the form of a crank. A sleeve, piston and connecting rod are provided and may be fitted to the unit so that single cylinder engine balance conditions can be simulated. Various sector plates of suitable mass can be attached to the two inner discs so that the student can observe the effect on the oscillations of various conditions of partial balance of the reciprocating masses.
