Root Cause Failure Analysis, 2nd Edition

  • September 2019
  • Number of views: 1187
  • Article rating: 5.0

This book was developed to help electric motor technicians and engineers prevent repeated failures because the root cause of failure was never determined. By using a proven methodology combined with extensive lists of known causes of failures, one can identify the actual cause of failure without being an “industry expert.” In fact, when properly used, this material will polish one’s diagnostic skills that would qualify one as an industry expert.

Principios de Motores C.A. Medianos y Grandes - NEMA

  • Number of views: 389
  • Article rating: No rating

Las versiones impresas, en CD-ROM y en forma de descarga del valioso manual didáctico / recurso de EASA, “Principios de Motores C.A. Medianos y Grandes”, se  ahora disponibles en inglés y en español. El manual incluye gráficos e ilustraciones, fotografías y mucha información técnica sobre máquinas C.A., incluyendo como funcionan, información específica sobre los tipos de encerramientos, fabricación de componentes y aplicaciones.  Muchos de los principios incluidos en el libro aplican a todos los motores C.A., especialmente a aquellos accesorios que fueron asociados en el pasado con las máquinas más grandes (como encoders, RTDs, termostatos, calentadores de espacio, sensores de vibración, etc.).

Techniques for detailed screening of vibration data; setting alarm limits

  • January 2018
  • Number of views: 215
  • Article rating: No rating

Many EASA service centers conduct vibration-based machine condition monitoring programs for their customers. This is a valuable revenue source that aligns the service center as a team member with the customer to provide uptime on their machinery and control maintenance costs. It also puts some of the responsibility for predicting machine failures on service center personnel who may be managing vibration data for hundreds of machines in multiple customer facilities. Given that vibration data is complex, composed of amplitude, frequency and phase, that can be a daunting task.

Técnicas para el filtrado detallado de datos de vibración-Estableciendo los límites de alarma

Muchos centros de servicio llevan a cabo programas de monitoreo por condición basado en la vibración de las máquinas para sus clientes. Esta es una fuente valiosa de ingresos que integra al centro de servicio como miembro del equipo del cliente para garantizar el tiempo de funcionamiento de su maquinaria y controlar los costos de mantenimiento. Esto también pone parte de la responsabilidad de predecir fallos en las máquinas, en el personal del centro de servicio que puede estar gestionando los datos de vibración para cientos de máquinas en múltiples instalaciones del cliente. Dado que los datos de vibración compuestos por amplitud, frecuencia y fase son complejos, esta puede ser una ardua tarea.

Applying balance tolerances to various machine rotors

The ISO balancing specification for rigid rotors (ISO 1940-1) was innovative when it was introduced decades ago. It established Balance Quality Grades based on the theoretical velocity the mass center of gravity of a rotor would encounter in free space, spinning at the rotor’s normal operating speed. That’s a mouthful of technical jargon, but a practical understanding of the nature of unbalance forces is important in applying balance tolerances to various machine rotors. It is also helpful in understanding the impact of fundamental changes in the recent replacement standard, 21940-11: 2016.

Aplicando las tolerancias de balanceo en rotores de diversas máquinas

La especificación ISO para balancear rotores rígidos (ISO 1940-1) fue innovadora cuando fue introducida hace varias décadas. Esta norma estableció los Grados de Calidad de Balanceo basada en la velocidad teórica que el centro de masa de un rotor se encontraría en espacio libre, girando a la velocidad de funcionamiento normal del rotor. Esta es terminología técnica difícil de expresar, pero un entendimiento práctico de la naturaleza de las fuerzas de desbalanceo es importante para aplicar las tolerancias de balanceo en rotores de diversas máquinas. Esto también ayuda a entender el impacto de los cambios fundamentales en la reciente norma de reemplazo: 21940-11: 2016.
