Abstract

The figure illustrates a texture spindle housing 5 altered by accommodating an air purge port 1. Air pressure passes through air purge port 1, around a bearing 2, and between a spindle shaft 4 and a containment ring 3. This protects bearing 2 from contamination caused from the texture process.
