Auxiliary cooling of electric motors (and other equipment)

Although the earliest practical DC motor was built by Moritz Jacobi in 1834, it was over the next 40 years that men like Thomas Davenport, Emil Stohrer and George Westinghouse brought DC machines into industrial use.  It’s inspiring to realize that work-ing DC motors have been around for over 160 years. For the past century, DC machines over 30 or 40 kW have been cooled in the same manner – by mounting a squirrel cage blower directly over the commutator.

Most common methods of balancing overhung rotors

On occasion, service centers are asked to balance fan blades that are designed for an overhung mounting. The fan blade may be received mounted on the shaft, or without any shaft. The decision has to be made about how to mount the rotor in the balancing machine. One solution is to fabricate a mandrel to balance the fan blade between the machine pedestals. The other alternative is to mount the fan blade on the end of the shaft in an overhung configuration, with the fan blade outboard of both balancing machine pedestals. This would be the more expedient method if the fan blade is already mounted on the shaft in the overhung configuration.  How the fan blade is mounted doesn’t change the balance, as long as the fit to the shaft doesn’t change. So the question is, “Which is easiest?” Often it is easiest to mount the rotor in the overhung configuration, but balancing in that configuration presents some challenges. Those challenges are addressed here.

  • Often an overhung fan is balanced in a single plane, only to find that the vibration has shifted to the outboard bearing.
  • Attempts to use standard two-plane techniques may result in calculated correction weights that are very large and produce poor results.
  • There are more effective ways to approach this common problem.
  • This presentation shows a methodical approach and techniques for tackling this difficult balancing problem.
  • This presentation is intended for field service balancing technicians, supervisors and managers.

Most service centers balance rotors routinely, with few surprises in the process. Most of us do not balance fans nearly as often as rotors. The fan balancing tips in this article should be helpful.

Fan law knowledge can help performance

Most of us involved in the repair of electrical equipment have a good understanding of how an electric motor works — especially the stator and rotor. But the fan can appear deceptively simple. Fans are pretty interesting, once we learn a few "affinity laws" — rules that also apply to blowers and impellers. This article will review some basic facts about fans that explain how small changes to a fan can make a BIG difference.
