In the sugar mill machine, equipment is operated under high temperature. This high temperature will affect to the roller shaft and journal bearing. Additionally, the equipment damages could be caused by the various factors that affected directly to roller shaft and journal bearing. In this research, the operations of equipments were modelled using the finite element analysis program (FEA), to determine the maximum temperature of the roller shaft and journal bearing after a specified period of time. An experiment with the physical roller shaft and journal bearing was carried out to obtain the actual temperature readings. Verification of the simulated results was performed by comparing the simulated values with the actual values obtained in the experiment. According to this research, the monitored parameters affected temperature and damages of the shaft and bearings during pressing oil from the hydraulic top cap. Finally, this research applied the FEA in conjunction with engineering and environmental management in sugar factory to reduces machine damange and to save energy during sugar mill operation.
Key words: Sugar mill machine / Finite element analysis / Journal bearing
