  • 5 Application Errors to Avoid When Installing Spare Motors

    Cost cutting on existing equipment will include using spares from idled equipment instead of buying new ones. While this may be necessary, it may not save money if the spare is improperly matched and installed. Low oil prices are greatly affecting the investment and installation of new pumping equipment. Cost cutting on existing equipment will include using spares from idled equipment instead of buying new ones. While this may be necessary, it may not save money if the spare is improperly matched and installed. Focusing on the same horsepower (hp), revolutions per minute (rpm), frame size and voltage is not enough. Ignoring five motor application considerations discussed in this article will cause additional downtime faster than expected.
  • Webinar | The Effects of Motor Regulations on Pump Systems

    For decades, the U.S. Department of Energy has issued market-changing industrial electric motor regulations to improve efficiency. The most recent rules, which have gone into effect over the past two years, impact most equipment manufacturers and users. In this webinar, we'll review the regulations and go into detail about the impact of motor speeds, operating speeds, inrush currents, motor sizes and motor configuration on existing and new pump system designs.
  • Consider machine integration in the design phase

    Machine integration and automation should be planned in the conceptual phases of a machine project, says Baldor’s Kirkpatrick. "The amount of integration will usually have a considerable effect on the required wiring—control, power, communications—which must be accommodated in the design and installation phases," he says.
  • NEMA and IEC comparisons

    NEMA and IEC comparisons - These motor types may be related, but they are not identical twins. When measuring, some use the metric system, and others use the imperial system. The metric system is used in most parts of the world, while the imperial system is used in the U.S. These two standards of measurement can be applied to anything we use. Likewise, we have two standards for electric motors.
  • Don't Come Uncoupled | Webinar

    Couplings are a critical part of many power transmission systems. Yet, best practices for maximizing coupling life are often neglected. This webinar will look at common failure modes of elastomeric couplings and best practices to keep your system from coming un-coupled.
  • Live Demos and New Product Presentations at AHR 2017

    We are headed to the largest HVACR marketplace, AHR EXPO 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Will we see you there?
