One of the easiest ways to prevent premature electric motor failure is to keep your motors clean and free of foreign contaminates. Many electric motors are fan cooled. When contaminates start to build up around the motor, air flow becomes restricted and reduces the ability for the fan to cool the motor which dramatically reduces the life the of winding’s insulation due to the increase in heat.

Dissipation Factor is an electrical test helps defi ne the overall condition of an insulating material. A di-electric material is a material which is a poor conductor of electricity but an effi cient supporter of an electrostatic field. When an electrical insulating material is subjected to an electrostatic fi eld, opposing electric charges in di-electric material form di-poles

When it comes to the analysis of used engine oil for condition monitoring purposes, certain contaminants are vitally important to monitor as they are often the root causes of premature oil degradation and engine failure. This Webinar will look at the role oil analysis can play in engine reliability as well as describe the contaminants that are capable of causing premature or even sudden engine failure....
