Article

One of the more mundane things we as repairers must be concerned with is motor storage. For many of us, storing large motors for major customers is its own profit center. For all of us, being aware of how our customers store the motors we repair and send to them is critical to customer satisfaction. A poorly stored motor is likely to suffer winding or bearing failure, and we don’t want unrealistic warranty claims over something outside our control.

Mejore la Satisfacción del Cliente: Siga los Procedimientos de Almacenamiento de Motores Eléctricos

Article

Una de las cosas más mundanas de las que debemos preocuparnos como reparadores es el almacenamiento de los motores y para muchos, almacenar motores grandes para clientes importantes representa ganancias. Para todos nosotros, ser conscientes de cómo nuestros clientes almacenan los motores que les reparamos es crítico desde el punto de vista de la satisfacción del cliente. Es probable que un motor mal almacenado sufra fallos en el devanado o en los rodamientos, y no queremos reclamos por garantía poco realistas sobre algo que está fuera de nuestro control.

Consider Rated Voltage and Frequency When Testing

  • July 2022

  • Article rating: No rating
Article

When possible, it is good practice to perform an uncoupled, no-load run on an induction motor as an incoming diagnostic test. A no-load run should also be performed after assembly, and ANSI/EASA AR100-2020 states that “no-load running tests should be made at rated voltage and rated frequency.” In this article, we’ll discuss some of the reasons why this is important and some things to consider when you cannot meet both requirements.

Cuando Haga Pruebas Considere la Tensión y Frecuencia Nominales

Como forma de diagnóstico y cuando sea posible, una buena práctica consiste en probar en vacío un motor de inducción que entra al centro de servicios. Esta misma prueba también se debe efectuar después del ensamblaje y la norma ANSI/ EASA AR100-2020 establece que "las pruebas en vacío se deben realizar a la tensión y frecuencia nominales". En este artículo, discutiremos algunas de las razones por las que esto es importante y algunos factores a considerar cuando no se puede cumplir con ambos requisitos.

Working with Segmented Stator Cores

Article

Induction motor stator cores can be manufactured using single-piece laminations, however, for larger stators, or when minimizing scrap material, the stator laminations are segmented. While most service center repairs of machines with segmented stator laminations require no special attention, this article reviews a few scenarios that are important to be mindful of.

Trabajando con Estatores con Núcleos Segmentados

Article
Los núcleos de los motores de inducción se pueden fabricar con laminaciones de una sola pieza, sin embargo, para estatores muy grandes o cuando se minimiza el material de desecho, las laminaciones del estator son segmentadas.  Aunque la mayoría de las reparaciones en el centro de servicio de  las máquinas con estatores con laminaciones segmentadas no requieren atención especial, este artículo analiza algunos escenarios que es importante tener en cuenta.
