Unplanned downtime is a production facilities worst nightmare. If the motor is found to be the cause of downtime, drop-in replacements are typically on hand to minimize the stoppage. Are you 100% sure the original motor and replacements are sized correctly for your application? Join us as we dig into the key characteristics of properly sizing a motor for reliability and discuss future efficiency regulations that may cause certain motors to increase in size.

Here’s what you’ll learn:

  • Key motor characteristics that will help you properly specify the right size motor
  • How upcoming efficiency regulations may affect the fit of drop in replacement motors
  • What motors are at the highest risk to be converted to the new efficiency regulations?
