Traditional rotor bar defect detection systems are often insufficient in sensitivity, record-ability and numerical analysis of test results. Many means of rotor defect detection require the motor to be fully assembled with a functional stator. These limitations have laid the groundwork for the development of a new rotor defect detection technique.
When considering building a large growler for testing armatures and rotors, the initial decision typically is to select a kVA rating. A primary reason for this is that the growler will need to be connected to a power supply of sufficient ampacity at the supply voltage. To help simplify a complex design process, four kVA ratings have been selected for this article.
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.
A customer specifies that the rotor is to be balanced to 4W/N. Is that the 4W/N Military specification, or the 4W/N API specification?It could make a big difference. And, how do they compare to the ISO 1940/1 specification (G2.5, G1, etc.)? Fortunately, for symmetrical rotors, comparing the various standards is only a matter of a bit of easy algebra. For non-symmetrical rotors, the process gets a little more difficult because each of the specifications handles these cases differently. The other good news is that there are on-line references that provide graphic and tabulated comparisons.
Most EASAns are familiar with the basics of rotor rebarring. We know that the endrings and bars are not always the same material, and understand the importance of maintaining the cage resistance. For those of us who only occasionally rebar rotors, here are a few tips to assure a quality repair.
