Justification Series...Platinum Rush

In the midst of a market rush to buy precious metals, the MCEMAX® In-Rush test was used to identify a rotor anomaly during a routine test at a South African platinum mine and keep production steady. A modulating current signal acquired during an In-Rush test that is not consistent with the expected load variations may indicate a faulty rotating magnetic field on the rotor. Remember that we recommend two additional tests independent of the In-Rush to assist in quantifying the severity and making a decision to remove and visually inspect the rotor.
