A number of choices are available when connecting pumps, fans and other rotating equipment to an electric motor. There are numerous mechanical and fluid coupling designs and, in some cases, a belt drive option is available.

Why integrating vibration monitors with process controls provides fast response to pump faults, adds predictability and avoids unexpected shutdowns.

Due to the delicate nature of the cranberry, pump failure is not an option.

The U.S. has not enacted a wide-reaching, industrial energy efficiency bill since 1992 when the Energy Efficiency Policy Act was passed.

As a follow up on my AC Motors series, I thought it would be a good idea to provide a short overview of work, power and torque as it applies to the AC motor.

In the past year, the rate of acceleration in the cost of raw materials (including steel, iron ore, copper and aluminum) has reached unprecedented levels in the pump and rotating equipment industries.

Due to the expense and labor required, most facilities need to maximize the life of their motors. Electrical, insulation resistance and thermal measurement are three tests that can troubleshoot motors, drives and associ­ated electrical panels and prolong their operational lifetime. Ther­mal imagers can detect potential problems and insulation resistance and electrical tests can deter­mine the cause.

The global economic downturn has resulted in an unprecedented attempt by world governments to help stimulate their individual economies, with the hope that these combined efforts will have a cumulative effect of breaking the downward spiral and lifting the global economy out of its crisis.

Why and how do leading OEMs choose a variable speed motor for their equipment?

I received many comments on my four-part series on AC Power, and most of them were very positive.

Water and wastewater systems in the United States use a tremendous amount of power.

In the past year, the rate of acceleration in the cost of raw materials (including steel, iron ore, copper and aluminum) has reached unprecedented levels in the pump and rotating equipment industries.

When maintaining motors, proactive strategies are required.

The economic downturn has delivered a heavy blow to the industrial manufacturing sector in North America. Manufacturers are indicating sales drops of 30 percent to nearly 60 percent compared to that of 2008.
