Last year, a Pumps & Systems reader asked about matching variable frequency drives (VFDs) and motors.

Equipment and technology improvements can be sound investments.

In the food industry, stainless steel performs more productively and efficiently.

A simple mathematical model can be used to estimate vibration at the top of the motor in a vertical pump-motor structure.

Understanding resonance is essential for solving problems of increased vibration.

The biggest decision is determining which tolerances to align.

Cost-effective solutions reduce harmonics and improve system reliability, efficiency.

The benefits of these motors provide the flexibility needed for challenging pump applications.

Electric motors have had a huge impact on the pump industry.

Improved motor starters help Fabri-Kal achieve its green vision.

Due to the expense and labor required, most facilities need to maximize the life of their motors.

Most of us probably never notice the spinning cylinder mounted between the pump and motor, except how easy it is to dis/assemble when a pump or motor is changed out.

All electric motors (motors) have a housing that contains the working components of the motor. In the U.S., the enclosure describes this housing.

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.

It is impossible to balance line-to-line voltages perfectly in a three-phase circuit.

Mechanically generated sparks, electrostatic discharge and high surface temperatures are all potential ignition sources in explosive atmospheres.

Because operational costs ride on efficiency determinations, accurate measurements of losses occurring within the motor are paramount.
