The company announces the availability of a bearing protection ring as an option on their motors, from a manufacturer of electro static technology that protects the motor bearings from shaft currents induced by adjustable speed drives. The manufacturer guarantees that any new motor up to 100 HP/75kW will not fail from electrical bearing fluting damage for the life of the motor when their bearing protection ring is installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s installation instructions. If electrically induced fluting damage occurs, the manufacturer will replace the motor bearings free of charge. The guarantee is subject to the terms and conditions of their guarantee program. The rings are specified by many HVAC, pump and conveyor manufacturers to mitigate adjustable speed drive circulating currents and prolong bearing life. They are available as an option on the company’s custom motors or they can be installed on a stock motor and shipped within a few days.
