  • Motor Repair or Replacement? The Green Solution (.pdf)
    The ever present emphasis on technological efficiency is just one of several forces behind the pressure on companies to "go green" despite a trying economy. Yet green investments, particularly as they relate to motors in plants, are likely to lead to conflict between two forces: plant management
  • Advanced Energy
    RALEIGH--Led by a team of maintenance and reliability experts from the Cargill Maintenance & Reliability Center of Excellence and Allied Services Group, a new motor repair specification is born. This could be the first of its kind to include a thorough process to insure that motor repair suppliers
    The Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) has reshaped the motor landscape, prompting industrial users to. reconsider the repair/replace decision, along with many other historical practices related to electric motors. Despite. purchase costs of up to 35% higher than standard-efficiency motors
  • Modern Motor Testing Offers Maintenance Professionals Increased Efficiency
    A motor supplying compressed air in a smelting plant fails, a motor necessary to pump petroleum products goes offline in a petrochemical plant, a motor essential to the operation of the number one line in a manufacturing plant goes down on the third shift. Each failure is unexpected, and, all
  • Ship's Steering Gear Motor Problem Diagnosed Using IR Technology (.pdf)
    The Queen of Saanich Ro-Ro Passenger Ferry experienced a high temperature bearing problem with one of its main steering gear motors. IR analysis showed the non drive end thrust bearing as the source of the heat being generated. It was thought at the time that the bearing was in failure mode
  • Electrical Troubleshooting
    , usually negative is connected to ground move motor to electric shop motor test and repair station connect motor leads for 460 volt operation and wrap connections with black electrical tape check motor windings with an ohmmeter, each reading between phases should be within one or two ohms of each
  • Making the Most of Energy at Initi@tive 2008
    personnel analyze existing faults and anticipate future performance to avoid nuisance trips, reduce downtime, and do less maintenance and repair. The motor-management system monitors and controls six motor functions while guarding against overload, peak current, and excessive power consumption. It can
  • Impulse Testing and Turn Insulation Deterioration in Electric Motors
    of dollars per hour. It is crucial to utilize scheduled plant downtime, during planned maintenance periods, for identifying equipment likely to fail. Identification of weak motors, and their replacement or repair during a planned outage, is more cost effective than the associated costs
