Welcome to the home of engineering excellence
Whether you are trying to reduce energy consumption by using ABB variable-speed drives, looking for a low cost high efficiency motor supplier, or have a demanding HVAC services project, look no further than the Gibbons Engineering Group.
When an electric motor fails,
it can save time if you know the most likely source of the problem. With this
in mind, ABB has produced a guide called Motors
don’t just fail… do they?, part of which categorises motor failure.
Bearing issues are comfortably ranked as the most common
reason for motor failure, with windings and external conditions the next most
likely according to ABB. Here are the figures in full:
Bearings – 51%
Windings – 16%
External conditions – 16%
Others – 10%
Rotor bar – 5%
Shaft coupling – 2%
It’s no surprise that problems associated with bearings
account for more than half of all electric motor failures. The demands placed
upon this crucial component mean that unless regularly inspected and
maintained, a number of potential faults may develop, including:
Whatever the reason for motor failure, unplanned downtime is
a very expensive inconvenience, with every minute your process is inactive
costing you more money in lost production.
