Toronto, ON — The website SKF.com offers a free online engineering calculator tool to calculate solutions to various engineering problems, including machinery vibration, O-ring selection, power transmission and rotor balancing. On the website, select the Aptitude Exchange link (‘SKF @ptitude Exchange’), then click on the Engineering Calculator link.

 

The site includes the following four calculators at this time.

 

Frequency Calculator: The analysis of vibrations of rotating machinery has become common practice as part of predictive maintenance programs. The vibrations show whether components are in healthy shape or suspect to anomalies. Vibration analysis consists of the vibration measurements and the interpretation of the vibration frequency spectra. In order to support the frequency spectrum analysis, this program provides the typical frequencies of rotating machinery components.

 

Radial O-ring Selector: This calculator allows you to find the recommended O-ring inner diameter and range of cross section diameters that will fit a given groove size and tolerance range in a radial seal.

 

Power Transmission Calculator: Power transmission is the movement of energy from its place of generation to a location where it is applied to performing useful work. This set of calculators range from horsepower to rotational inertia and are intended be used for general engineering purposes. Please consult the manufacturer of your equipment for specific calculations and product requirements.

 

Rotor Balance Tolerance: This calculator is used in situations where rotors are workshop balanced, i.e. the balancing exercise is performed in a dynamic balancing machine.
