Preventing failures and maximizing electric motor efficiency
Preventing problems is far easier than conducting full-blown motor repairs. That’s why Leppert-Nutmeg maintenance technicians are trained to inspect an array of AC and DC motors and identify the early warning signs of wear-and-tear that can easily escalate into major problems. A simple electric motor test like vibration monitoring can pinpoint a faulty bearing before it fails, preventing a chain reaction that could result in the failed bearing propelling the rotor to strike the winding, thus crippling the entire system indefinitely.
To stave off these types of disastrous problems, Leppert-Nutmeg offers a wide range of electric motor test and maintenance services that save time and money by:
- Identifying problem areas
- Determining the root-cause problem of failures
- Reducing unscheduled downtime by predicting and averting imminent failures
Motor maintenance does more than just prevent major problems, it can also vastly improve the power and longevity of your motor. Using EASA’s Uprate computer program, Leppert-Nutmeg can increase your electric motor efficiency and HP by performing a simple stator rewind, stator core replacement or converting your motor’s winding from a random wind to a more efficient form wind.
