Utilizing Phase to Confirm Machine Faults
It’s on all of the vibration fault charts, it’s taught in vibration classes, and it’s used for balancing – but how often is phase actually used by vibration analysts to confirm faults?

How to Check Your Windings on Three Phase Motors
Motor windings are conductive wires wrapped around a magnetic core; they provide a path for current to flow to create then magnetic field to spin the rotor. Like any other part of the motor, the winding can fail.

Phase Measurements-Fundamental Uses for Single and Cross-Channel Phase
Many machinery problems are easy to detect and to diagnose, but sometimes the issues can only reveal themselves upon more in-depth investigation. This presentation will show how this data is acquired, displayed, and used for diagnostics.

How To Check Motor Winding Resistance On Single & Three-Phase Motors
Motor Circuit Analysis™ (MCA™) is a test method that determines the true state of health of 3 phase & single-phase electrical motors. MCA™ checks the motors coils, rotor, connections, and more. MCA™ can verify ac motor winding resistance as well as dc motor resistance and determine state of health.

Gaps in Your Electric Motor Reliability Program
Businesses invest millions of dollars in what they believe will be a fail-safe maintenance program for their electric motors. Regular tests are scheduled for each motor; engineers dutifully record the data when required and then move on to the next motor.

Digital Maintenance Plan Avoids More Than £25,000 in Wasted Costs for Yelo
Yelo’s manufacturing plant was custom-built to enable it to produce the highest quality vegetable oil and animal feed using only mechanical processes.
Asset availability and reliability is critical to the business and the management team understood that adopting a ‘run-to-failure’ reactive maintenance approach would be both costly and inefficient.
