Increasing motor life with AEGIS Bearing Protection Rings
08 June 2012
One great example of how Gatterdam’s is working with our customers to increase the life of their motors and equipment, is through the installation of AEGIS Bearing Protection Rings. Variable frequency drives (VFD) on AC and DC motors induce harmful electrical voltages on the motor shaft. Once these motors exceed the resistance of the bearing lubricant, they discharge through the motor’s bearings causing pitting and fluting damage. Premature bearing failure can result from this.
The AEGIS shaft grounding ring can make your motors more sustainable. Gatterdam’s can mount these rings inside the end bracket of a motor or provide exterior mounting options. Call us today to find out more. We're here to help.
