Canadian Standard CSA C392 2nd Edition Published

Canadian Standards Association logoThe formal designation and full title for this standard that was published in April 2020 is, “CSA C392:20 Testing of Three-Phase Squirrel Cage Motors During Refurbishment.” This is the second edition of the standard and supersedes the previous edition published in 2011. The standard focuses on the identification of those tests that help to determine whether the efficiency of a motor is maintained after it is “refurbished,” without requiring a motor efficiency test.

The detailed descriptions of the tests to be performed make this standard very useful as a reference and a how-to document for any service center, not just those in Canada.

Tech Tip: Slot Liners + VPI Coils

Avoid using a slot liner with vacuum pressure impregnation (VPI) coils. The liner inhibits VPI penetration. If you have winders who are worried that they might damage the coil at the slot ends, have them cut “slot liner” about two inches long and just position them at the slot ends. 

Not only does a full-length slot liner make it more difficult for VPI to penetrate the coil, the slot liner also tends to flare slightly in vent ducts, restricting airflow.

Safety Tip: Machine Shop Safety

  • Treat all electrical circuits as though they were energized. Lock out controls and switches before beginning repairs or maintenance on any machine. 
  • Allow only the person who placed the lock to remove it. Never begin work until all moving parts of the machinery have stopped in a fixed position. Make sure the machine is in a “zero mechanical state.”
  • Special precautions are necessary in shutting down hydraulic or air-operated machinery. Check with your supervisor.
