Multi-row ball bearing

 

The invention relates to the field of drilling wells for oil or gas, in particular to constructions sites downhole motors. Multi-row ball bearing consists of 12-15 rows of balls resting on the conical surface of the stator casing and the conical surface of the rotor casing. The position of each row of balls on the carriers is determined by the diametral and axial dimensions of the rotor and the stator spacer rings.

The present invention relates to means used for drilling oil and gas wells, more precisely to the assemblies and parts downhole motors that cause the rotation of the drill bits, ug is (see sourceTurbine oil drilling, M. I. Guzman, Moscow, 1952, Costoptimized, pp. 55-56.). The design of this bearing was very difficult and-low-tech manufacturing, resulting not found industrial application.

The closest analogue of our invention is toBall bearing" as described by A. C. of the USSR №166627, 25.08.62. In this author's testimony described multi-row ball bearing comprising balls and thrust rings (hoops). The balls of each row bearings are enclosed between the cylindrical rotor spacer rings, which are separated from each other by a rotary thrust holder, and a cylindrical stator spacer rings, which are separated from each stator resistant casing. The difference of diameters between the outer cylindrical surface of the rotor spacer rings and the inner cylindrical surface of the stator spacer rings is equal to twice the diameter installed in between the balls. Rotor and stator resistant casing having working surfaces that come in contact with the balls, made in the form of conical surfaces inclined to the plane perpendicula and quite a large abrasive, the balls roll on persistent clips spherical track, resulting in the support is formed of an axial backlash.

The amount of backlash in 6-7 mm limit exemption resistance of the bearing, which ranges from 60-120 hours of Work multi-row ball bearing in the environment of drilling fluid characterized by a single feature, which is characteristic only of the bearings of this type.

The desire to make a ball bearing to the maximum extent lifting leads to the fact that by increasing the diameter of the balls, the designers are forced to utonet spacer rings. Today, their thickness varies from 4.7 to 5.5 mm, While the length of the contact circle (point of contact of the balls with rotor and stator thrust clips) differ by 15-20%. Consequently, the rotor thrust clip produced is always faster than the stator holder. You receive the spacer component of the axial force, which, being summarized in the course of the centrifugal force acting on each ball, more intense starts fraying stator spacer rings. Taking into account that the mounting features multi-row ball bearings in the spindles turbodrills provide their fixation in the body of the spindle axial force in the 600-800 kN tension in each of the stator igodit to their swelling and saclike in the spindle body. Or have to nederbeat support up to the maximum possible axial play, reducing their possible lifespan, or vyrisovyvat the bearing housing of the spindle that is not always possible. In this case, the entire spindle is turning into scrap metal.

The invention allows the release of multi-row ball bearing from wear spacer rings and thereby increase resource work supports up to 250-300 hours, as it is possible to modify the bearing to the axial backlash in 10-12 mm.

The invention consists in creating multi-row ball bearing, consisting of several rows of balls, impact resistant casing, between which are mounted a rotary spacer ring; a stator resistant casing, between which are mounted a stator spacer rings, while the difference between the inner diameter of the stator spacer rings and the outer diameter of the rotor spacer rings is equal to twice the diameter installed in between the balls. Each of the stator and rotor thrust cone has a conical surface in contact with the balls, and the inclination of the tapered surfaces of the stator thrust raced to the plane perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the multi-row ball bearings, all structural performance of multi-row ball bearings downhole motors allows at least to double the exemption lifetime of their spindles.

The invention is illustrated in three figures.

In Fig.1 shows in cross section a General view of the multi-row ball bearings.

In Fig.2 shows the cross-section of one of the rotary cage multi-row ball bearings.

In Fig.3 shows the cross-section of one stator holder multi-row ball bearings.

In most cases, ball bearing consists of 12-15 rows of balls 1, which is supported on the conical surface 2 of the stator casing 3 and the conical surface 4 of the rotor casing 5. The position of each row of balls 1 on the clamps 3 and 5 is determined by the diametral and axial dimensions of the rotor 6 and the stator 7 spacer rings. The difference between the internal diameterDineach stator spacer ring 7 and an outer diameterdneach rotor spacer ring 6 is equal to twice the diameter of the ballsdW. The axial height of thehocthe rotor 6 and Satarov 1 relative to the conical surfaces 2 and 4 of the stator casing 3 and the rotor casing 5 in the range of 0.1-0.5 mm

The slope of the conical surface 4 of the rotor casing 5 to the plane perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the multi-row ball bearing (indicated by the index of), is selected within 15-35°, depending on the overall diameter of the ball bearing and the diameter of the ballsdWinstalled in each of its rows.

The inclination of the tapered surfaces of the stator 2 of the 3 clips to the plane perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of the multi-row ball bearing (indicated by the index of), 5-15° more than tilt to the same plane of the conical surface 4 of the rotor casing 5. The difference in the angles is greater, the larger the diameter of the ballsdWinstalled in each row, multi-row ball bearings.

The WORK of the MULTI-row BALL BEARINGS IN the SPINDLE HOLE of the ENGINE

The new multi-row ball bearing is mounted on the shaft of the downhole motor as mounted serial ball bearing (nl is her section of the engine. To the shaft of the spindle is fixed a bit, and then begins the descent downhole motor to drill pipe in the wellbore drilled wells. Downhole arrangement for 8-12 m not brought tooldslaughter drilled wells, and then incorporated in the work of mud pumps. Within 10-15 minutes the new multi-row ball bearing with a minimum flow of drilling mudroll theabove the old bottom, after which the feed pump is displayed on the normal mode and begins the process rassilki, and then drilling wells.

In the process of rolling under the action of the hydraulic load on the rotary elements of the ball bearing and the corresponding reaction on its stator elements is axially production of tapered thrust surfaces of the clamps and alignment of the axial load on the rows of ball bearings. Any difference in the anglesandthe conical surfaces of the rotor 5 and the stator 3 clips multi sartory (MTBF supports, consequently, the spindle was determined only by the magnitude of the generated axial play in the bearing, that is, the axial height of her clips and backlash of the working bodies of the engine.
