AC induction motors are the most popular design used in industry. The incoming power for an AC induction motor can come from either shore power or variable frequency drives. An AC induction motor is made up of core iron, stator winding, insulation and frame. CMT can test any AC induction motor components with stator core […]
Sometimes motors in service don’t replicate controlled lab conditions. Load types may be mismatched or there might be operating efficiencies like worm gearing, wear friction or bad power, which could lead to an outage. CMT can test your motors to make sure they are up and running and repair as needed.
Did an electric motor stop? Did a shaft break? Did a gearbox begin to make noise? Did pump performance drop? Did a bearing or industrial fan fail due to end of life? CMT can identify the problem and repair it at your facility or ours 24/7/365.
Keep your machines and processes running smoothly with preventative maintenance. CMT has a fleet of vehicles equipped with the tools to maintain your machines and, if necessary, repair them onsite, so your company doesn’t have downtime. CMT’s preventative and field services include: vibration analysis, dynamic balance, laser alignment, thermography, FARO measurement and PdMA.
All industrial and commercial process lines have machinery that can have a mechanical failure, such as an electric motor, gearbox, ventilation system, pump system or conveyor. Machinery downtime means work stoppages, which could be critical if on a production line. CMT can fabricate and machine new structural components, manufacture or repair small components and offers […]
Industrial air handling units serve many purposes: fume removal, dust collection, cooling air and material movement. Primary designs of air handling units include: vane axial design and centrifugal design. Vane axial design uses a propeller blade that draws air in and out of a tube in the same direction. Centrifugal design uses a blower wheel […]
Purchased a replacement motor and determined it can’t be installed? CMT can help. CMT can modify shafts and mounting, if the motor design, performance and enclosure is determined to be acceptable for the application. CMT can add accessories, such as encoders, brakes, heaters, as needed to support the existing control system. Electric motors are the […]
This Memorial Day weekend and always, we remember those who lost their lives fighting for our freedom. Thank you. God Bless America.
Industrial crane brakes are found on all large overhead cranes. These industrial crane brakes are designed to stop and hold loads through several hundred tons. Industrial crane brakes have a fail-safe device that automatically locks when power is disconnected. It is located in the power transmission components to ensure safety in the event of a […]
Generators and alternators convert one form of energy into another (also called electricity). Many generators and alternators are diesel fuel powered, natural gas powered or coal powered. Pictured is a 2000 KVA/1600 KW alternator that is driven by a digester gas fueled engine in a landfill. This particular alternator was used in a landfill […]
