Pressure is NOT a Good Thing

This Pressure Case Study comes from a cement plant in Indonesia. Pressure in regards to motors is always a bad thing and in this case if it builds up too much could cause an explosion. Failure of the motor could cost 1.1 million USD. Evaluation of the initial tests leads to additional tests and the results point to overheating damage to the rotor which is confirmed visually. How can repairs be delayed to satisfy production, but not cause an explosion? To learn more click on the Pressure Button below to view the case study.

H2 + O = Water

Water Needs Oxygen Too. Do you know your biological oxygen demand?  This case study from a pulp and paper mill in Columbia takes a look at a pump that provides oxygen to the water. The pump was in trouble, but what was the problem? Click on the Water Drop Button below to view the case study and follow the motor analysis to its conclusion.

Water Needs Oxygen Too



Some Like it Hot, But Not This Hot!

Hot? How hot is too hot? What happens to insulation when the motor gets too hot? What happens to the motor life when the motor gets too hot? How do you determine if it’s too hot? Answer: Testing, trending, and taking necessary action. Watch this case study to see the effect heat has on insulation and motors and how to be pro-active in order to reduce lost dollars.

Safe and Easy
It is safe, but there is nothing easy about donning all of the required personal protection equipment necessary to perform online electric motor testing. Helmet with face shield, goggles, two pair of gloves (rubber and leather), long-sleeves these all take time to put it on and they are bulky when you try to maneuver in small, cramped spaces.

Are you interested in an easier, quicker, but still safe, way to test electric motors online that doesn’t involve suiting up? Click on the Electrical Safety image below to view our safety presentation for an answer.
