End users frequently demand that EASA service centers provide an array of test data at the conclusion of the service/repair process. These tests are normally to validate compliance with the customer’s motor repair specifications. One of the more common tests involves running the motor no-load and providing the motor owner with electrical test information and vibration spectrums covering various frequency bands.

Tips for test running motors with roller bearings

Ball and sleeve bearing motors can always be test run without any type of external load on the motor and bearings. However, when repairing a motor equipped with roller bearings that is used in an application with a radial load, such as a belted load, it is not advisable to perform the standard no-load test run for any length of time. Yet the no-load test run is a crucial step in the repair process to ensure proper operation. Without that radial load, the bearings can be damaged. This article will describe two ways to put a load on the shaft of a motor and therefore the roller bearing, so that it can be test run to ensure that it has been properly repaired.
