How static motor testing can support preventative maintenance

How static motor testing can support preventative maintenance
One of the most common causes of electric motor failure is bearing issues, responsible for around 51% of failures. This is followed by electrical insulation faults, which are responsible for up to 30% of failures. But, while predictive maintenance techniques, such as vibration analysis, are often used to analyse the motor’s health, in comparison little is done to detect signs of insulation deterioration and failure. Here Chris Robson, Sales Director of Houghton International, discusses the importance of static motor testing for assessing the full condition of motors.

Three steps to energy efficient motors

Three steps to energy efficient motors
Electric motors are the backbone of manufacturing, but they are also among the most energy-intensive pieces of equipment. More than 65% of electrical energy in industry is consumed by motors, and the annual cost of running one of them can be up to ten times its original price. Here Neil Ballinger, Head of EMEA at EU Automation, shares three tips to make your motor more energy efficient.
