  • Article rating: No rating
Webinar recording

La conexión incorrecta de los motores eléctricos es una causa frecuente de fallo y es más común de lo que parece. La falta de información y la mala interpretación de los datos de placa son algunas de sus causas. En este webinario se explican los diferentes tipos de conexiones para los motores eléctricos trifásicos de una o varias velocidades con al menos 6 cables de salida y se comparan las equivalencias NEMA e IEC para el marcado de cables. La información proporcionada también será de gran utilidad para evitar el conexionado incorrecto en los diferentes voltajes. También incluye las conexiones por devanado partido (Part Winding) y como interpretar la información de la conexión de la placa de datos.

What watts, what pounds? Working with stator core test results

  • November 2019
  • Number of views: 327
  • Article rating: 4.0
Article

The two primary reasons for performing stator core testing in the service center are (1) to verify that the stator core is acceptable for continued use and in the event of a rewind, and (2) to verify that the repair process has not adversely changed the stator core condition. The purpose of this article is to discuss how we determine, assess and compare stator core test results. It is extremely important to understand that variance in test procedures may invalidate comparison.

  • Article rating: 5.0
Article

Las dos razones principales para realizar la prueba de núcleo del estator en el centro de servicios son (1) verificar que el núcleo del estator es apto para uso continuo y en caso de rebobinado y (2) verificar que el proceso de rebobinado no ha alterado de forma adversa la condición del núcleo del estator. El propósito de este artículo es discutir como determinar, evaluar y comparar los resultados de la prueba de núcleo. Es muy importante comprender que la variación de los procedimientos de prueba puede invalidar la comparación.

Occasionally an end user wants to take a motor designed for horizontal mounting and use it in a vertical position. This article addresses some of the key mechanical factors that should be considered when applying a horizontal ball-bearing motor in a vertical mounting position.

How to deal with wet or flooded motors

Saltwater becomes a major problem

Trade press article — Plant Engineering

Flooding in the aftermath of tropical storms, including hurricanes, monsoons and cyclones, and with their associated heavy rainfall can shut down hundreds of plants along the Gulf Coast, from Florida to Texas, as well as in other places around the world. And they are doing so more often. To get them up and running again, maintenance departments and motor repairers face the daunting task of cleaning muck and moisture from many thousands of electric motors and generators. The process involved in such situations can take weeks, if not months, and requires special clean-up procedures for motors contaminated by saltwater.

Como ocurre el empuje hacia arriba en las bombas de turbina verticales y disposiciones para controlarlo

  • October 2019
  • Number of views: 139
  • Article rating: No rating
Article

Las bombas de turbina verticales (VTP) son accionadas por motores verticales provistos con grandes rodamientos de empuje que soportan el peso del rotor del motor, el rotor de la bomba y el empuje dinámico hacia abajo, producido por los impulsores cuando levantan el líquido. El peso del rotor del motor y del rotor de la bomba se determinan fácilmente a partir de datos de ingeniería simples. El cálculo del empuje producido por los impulsores cuando interactúan con el líquido en movimiento es mucho más difícil y no siempre el empuje es generado hacia abajo.

En este artículo revisemos brevemente cómo se produce el empuje hacia arriba en las bombas y las disposiciones en los motores VTP diseñados para controlarlo.

How up-thrust occurs and provisions to control it in vertical turbine pumps

  • October 2019
  • Number of views: 99
  • Article rating: No rating
Article

Vertical turbine pumps (VTP) are driven by vertical motors with large thrust bearings that support the weight of the motor rotor, the pump rotor and the dynamic down-thrust generated by the pump impellers as they lift the liquid. The weight of the motor rotor and pump rotor are easily determined from simple engineering data. The amount of thrust generated by the impellers as they interact with the moving liquid is much more complicated, and the thrust is not always generated in the downward direction. This article looks at how up-thrust occurs and the provisions to control it.
