Here's a 315kW ABB motor overhaul that our team completed over the weekend. The motor, from a large quench fan from the glass industry, is part of the customer’s critical equipment which they cannot operate without.
Whilet doing some vibration analysis, we detected higher than acceptable readings.
We scheduled to attend the site and remove the motor on the Friday, service the motor over the weekend and then refit the motor on Monday morning in time for our customer to resume production.
Once the motor was back in production our engineers performed vibration analysis as part of the commissioning process which confirmed it was correctly aligned, balanced and the newly fitted SKF bearings were healthy.
So, all in all, it was a job well done!
