Prevent Downtime with Electrical Bearing Protection

In today’s energy conscious world more and more motors are being operated with variable frequency drives.  Drives provide large energy savings, reduced inrush current and precise speed control.  However, VFDs do have their drawbacks. 

Chief among these drawbacks is electrical bearing damage caused by stray shaft currents.  This damage manifests itself in the form of fluting in the bearing inner race.

There is, however, a solution to these damaging currents. An Aegis shaft grounding ring can mitigate any potential damage by diverting damaging voltages to ground.

Flolo is a factory authorized Aegis installer which adds an extra two years to the motor warranty.

Pictured are the three stages of motor bearing damage caused by stray shaft currents in an unprotected motor.
