Storing an electric motor for more than a few weeks involves several steps to ensure it will operate properly when needed. Factors like temperature, humidity and ambient vibration in the storage area also influence the choice of storage methods, some of which may be impractical for smaller machines or need to be reversed before the motor goes into storage.
It is common knowledge to those involved in the electric motor storage business that maintenance philosophies and procedures vary. Thorough reviews of available information on the topic of long-term storage from EASA and seven different motor manufacturers revealed some interesting similarities and differences in the information available from each source. Several sources share common elements such as environment, moisture protection, bearing maintenance, and insulation resistance. The purpose of our discussion here is to describe some of the differences and hopefully give some points to consider when creating a long-term storage process for end users.
Vibration readings provide the best early warning of developing problems in a motor or system component. Other parameters to monitor may include operating temperature of critical components, mechanical tolerances, and overall system performance, including outputs such as flow rate, tonnage, and volume.
When an electric motor is expected to be stored for an appreciable time before it is placed into service, certain steps should be taken to ensure that it will be suitable for operation when it is needed. The practical limitation we need to recognize is that much of what we do when putting a motor into long-term storage has to be undone when the same motor is moved into operation. This article addresses common recommendations for stored motors.
Trickle heating is another very practical option to heat AC stator windings or DC field windings while they are not energized.
Many service centers are also motor distributors, keeping a large stock of motors to sell. In addition, many hold motors in storage for specific customers as their spares. Many end-users also keep spare motors on site to keep production moving when a motor fails or needs an overhaul. In any of these cases, whether a motor is stored for a month or many years, there are certain steps that must be taken to ensure that as soon as a motor is taken out of storage, it will be in good condition.
This 40-page booklet provides great advice for obtaining the longest, most efficient and cost-effective operation from general and definite purpose electric motors.
