This three part primer is a basic introduction to AC power for those in the pump industry who need a place to start. It will also provide several web references to access if you would like to further your understanding of this interesting and essential topic.

Unanticipated noise and vibration can be problematic for both occupants and processes within structures.

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.

Advanced motor protective relays provide superior protection for motors and pumps. pump system optimization

The pump industry is the largest purchaser of electric motors in the United States.

A paper or an electronic work order system can be used to capture alignment data.

An argument in favor of IEEE-841's provision for motor bearing protection.

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.

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

How do I move from my situation to a better one? In other words, is it possible to retrofit a less-than-optimal installation with a better solution, and how?

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.

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.

A large wastewater processing plant experienced continual problems with its influent raw wastewater pumps for several years.

Last month we took a close look at the flow of voltage and current in purely resistive and inductive circuits.

The industrial motor world has a new specification available for defining the requirements of general purpose, severe duty motors in the 250- to 3,000-hp range.

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.

The RPMAC PM Direct Drive Cooling Tower Motor and VS1CTD Drive for wet cooling towers replaces an existing motor, jack shaft and gearbox with a more efficient and environmentally responsible variable speed motor and drive with the motor mounted directly under the fan.

When maintaining motors, proactive strategies are required.

Couplings are often forgotten until a project is nearing its end.
