  • Element Inspection Criteria for Couplings

    Baldor-Dodge Raptor’s easy to assemble, patent-pending split rubber element significantly decreases total cost of ownership and extends driven equipment life. Designed for drop-in interchangeability, the Raptor offers easy installation and reduced maintenance in an innovative design. When it is time to inspect or maintenance the coupling, it is important to know what to look for so elements can be replaced when appropriate and unplanned downtime is minimized.

  • 7 Questions to Ask When Upgrading a Pump Motor

    For motors used in the U.S., the selection of an energy-efficient instead of premium-efficient motor is no longer an option. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recently made changes to the efficiency requirements for the majority of definite-purpose motors, including pump motors. These new requirements went into effect June 1, 2016.
  • A Preventive Plan For Bearing Protection

    Perhaps someday all motors will be so well built that there will be no more electrical bearing damage. Until that day comes, motor repair shops will continue to replace bearings eroded by voltages induced by variable frequency drives (VFDs).

  • How to Size a Motor

    Calculations, advice and formulas for ensuring you have the right motor for your application. A Control Design reader wrote to us: "The multi-station dial indexers we build are in multiple diameters and different cycle rates. We have one basic design that is customized based on the needs of the application. How can we be sure we’re sizing the right type of motor correctly? The tables’ motors currently can vary from induction to servo. We’re also thinking of adding a gear box or direct drive. What are the calculations we can use to determine which motor to use?" We posed the question to a range of experts in the industry. Here's what they said ...
  • What Lubrication Method Should I Use?

    Lubricants are a critical factor in the performance and life of a rolling element bearing. Less than 10 percent of bearings reach their theoretical L10 life, and poor lubrication can be attributed to 80 percent of those that fall short. Ideally, a lubricant forms a film layer between moving components in a bearing, separating moving parts, minimizing friction and preventing wear between balls or rollers, raceways and retainers. Lubricants also protect metal surfaces from corrosion and moisture, dissipate heat and can even prevent the ingress of contaminants.
