Root Cause Failure Analysis Methodology
Root Cause Methodoloy is a step-by-step method for examining a failed motor and its system. It focuses on the stresses that acted upon the failed component. By better understanding these stresses, the service center is more likely to uncover the root cause of failure.
This webinar will examine the five key steps of root cause methodology:
The webinar will also discuss the "5 Whys?", summarize motor stresses, and stress the importance of total system analysis (not just motor).Who should attend
The webinar will be most useful for service center and field technicians, service center managers, engineers, and users maintenance personnel desiring to understand the techniques for determining root cause of failures and implement remedies to improve reliability.
Topic(s): AC, DC, Root cause failure analysis
Squirrel Cage Rotor Testing
Determining whether or not a squirrel cage rotor is defective is an issue that is a challenge to every service center as there is often no simple way to determine the integrity of a rotor. The primary focus of this session will be to describe many of the available tests that can be utilized in the service center or at the motor installation site. In addition to conventional squirrel cage rotor testing methods such as the growler test, techniques that will also be covered are the use of a core loss tester, high current excitation, and spectrum analysis of vibration.Who should attend
This webinar will be most useful for service center and field technicians with at least 2 years experience, service center supervisors and managers, engineers, or anyone with previous experience dealing with suspected open rotor issues.
Topic(s): AC, Testing
Strength and Characteristics of Motor and Pump Shaft Materials
Most service center technicians and managers know the general properties of a few common grades of steel used for motor and pump shafts. This webinar will expand that knowledge by defining the important parameters of a range of steel grades and how they affect performance. The affects of thermal treating and basic metallurgical terminology will also be presented.Who should attend
This webinar is intended for service center supervisors, managers and machine shop technicians.
Topic(s): Pumps, Shafts
Submersible Pump Cable Entries and Seals
"Water finds a way." The quote may be anonymous but that is the reality for anyone working with submersible pumps. Sometimes neglected, the cable entry point can be a source of moisture entrainment that leads to damp windings and ground failures. This webinar will address this important link in sealing submersible pumps.
Taking Three-Phase Winding Data
This webinar will stress the importance of taking accurate winding data and explain and emphasize the consequences of inaccurate data. Details will be provided on how to take accurate electrical and mechanical data; and how to verify that the data is correct. One of the main benefits of this webinar will be an improved ability to “get it right the first time” so as to avoid the added cost and time of another rewind to correct errors.Who should attend
This webinar will be most useful for service center winders, engineers, supervisors and managers. The content will be beneficial for beginners through highly experienced persons.
Topic(s): AC, Repair tips/procedures
