Yes, AC/DC is a band, but AC/DC also refers to motors. AC motors are found in power plants, chemical plants, municipalities, rubber, mining and cracker plants. DC motors are found in steel mill, rail, mining, plastic and shipboard applications. CMT can repair and refurbish AC and DC motors – anything from periodic bearing maintenance to […]
Did you know that all electric motors are supplied with a nameplate that provides voltage information? Motors are designed and efficiency rated at the balanced nameplate voltage. Deviating voltage up or down changes torque and temperature. All deviations impact motor life. CMT can identify and provide solutions to keep your motor running.
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.
An electric motor rewind can be done to make a motor workable again without the high cost of paying for a new motor. A motor can also be rewound in an emergency, thus minimizing a customer’s downtime. For example, if an AC motor fails, it usually means that the insulation or coils were damaged by […]
