Last month we took a close look at the flow of voltage and current in purely resistive and inductive circuits.
In June, 2007, a reader asked Electrical Apparatus magazine, "How long should motor bearings last?" The answer will astound you.
Unanticipated noise and vibration can be problematic for both occupants and processes within structures.
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.
A paper or an electronic work order system can be used to capture alignment data.
Improvements in performance and energy reduction can be achieved with smart drives and system optimization.
Many people feel that all pump vibrations are bad, but is this a fact or only what we think is true?
When a motor fails, users can (1) rewind, possibly for high efficiency; (2) replace the failed motor with a new motor; or (3) invest in a premium efficiency product.
Energy efficiency and reduced consumption are important issues in the pump and motor marketplace.
When maintaining motors, proactive strategies are required.
Why integrating vibration monitors with process controls provides fast response to pump faults, adds predictability and avoids unexpected shutdowns.
