  • Get Smart About Low Voltage Motors | Webinar

    Smart-sensor technology brings the benefit of remote condition monitoring to low-voltage motors by collecting data on important operating parameters and transferring it wirelessly to a secure server. This technology allows plant staff to check the status of motors using their smartphone or PC without having to touch the motor.
  • Take (and keep) the load off bearings | External link

    Element material selection is a critical component in the design process for any elastomeric coupling. This is no different for axially split tire elements. Some manufacturers use a high-load-capacity polyurethane bonded to metal clamp rings. At first glance, this material would appear to be a wise choice; polyurethane is a very strong material, and the primary function of a coupling is to transmit torque.
  • Third quarter results - ABB: Continuing growth

    We continue to build growth momentum across all regions, with total orders growing 5 percent and revenues up 3 percent in Q3, while continuing with the business model transformation in Power Grids,” said ABB CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer. “The combination of a stronger market orientation and a focus on high-growth segments, such as electric vehicle charging, robotics and food and beverage, is paying off.
  • Lowering Lifetime Costs of Motors in Pump Applications | Webinar

    The lifetime cost of the motor is an important factor in product decisions. What if you could lower the total cost of ownership for the motors in your centrifugal pump applications by achieving above NEMA premium efficiencies that save energy and ultimately pay back the motor? This webinar will look at a new technology in motor design that achieves ultra-high efficiencies when used with a VFD or DOL and lowers lifetime costs.

  • Food Safety and Production, Choosing the Right Electric Motor | Webinar

    In the ongoing effort to provide a sustainable and safe food supply, choosing the right electric motor is of utmost importance, not only for the safety of the food, but for the life of the driven equipment. This webinar will explore the challenges of the modern food processing facility and how to employ the proper motor driven equipment to keep conveyors moving and pumps pumping, while at the same time ensuring a safe and viable food supply.

New Products

  • Food Safe Stainless Steel Motors | Designing for Food Safety

    We are proud to announce the next generation food safe, stainless steel motor platform for extreme environments within the food and beverage industry.

  • Dodge Hydraulic ISAF Bearings : An easier, safer bearing to install and remove

    The Dodge Hydraulic ISAF (HISAF) mounted spherical roller bearing features a patented built-in hydraulic mounting system that makes this bearing simple to mount and dismount. Hydraulic pressure replaces physical labor, creating a safer and more accurate installation. The ease and precision of installation means less time is spent installing and removing the HISAF, reducing downtime on the equipment and labor costs associated with replacing bearings. Built to the same critical mounting dimensions as the industry standard SAF and SDAF, HISAF is a drop in interchange to existing equipment.
  • Dodge Quantis gear reducers and gearmotors now available in higher ratios

    The Quantis product family, a full line of modular gear drives, has expanded to offer four and five stages of gear reduction for all three types of gear arrangements; in-line helical (ILH), offset parallel (MSM) and right angle helical bevel (RHB). Quantis reducers and gearmotors can now be configured in ratios over 7500:1 with an output torque range up to 14,000 Nm, making the new output speed range 20-times greater than before.
  • Already Better, Now Bigger: Dodge Raptor Couplings now Offered in Larger Sizes

    We're pleased to announce the expansion of the Raptor tire coupling product line, designed to deliver up to 5.9x longer coupling life, to include sizes E100, E120 and E140, with a maximum torque rating of 340,340 in-lb. The Raptor coupling utilizes patented WingLock™ technology, an optimized elastomeric element designed to provide longer driven equipment life and increased reliability. This technology increases surface area at the most critical regions of the element, resulting in higher bond strength, improved fatigue resistance, and significantly longer coupling life than competitive urethane designs.

Fortunately, motor and drive sup- pliers are working hard to provide top-notch equipment with modern features that can withstand the demanding applications found in the chemical processing environment.
  • 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.
  • 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.
