Electrical Bearing Protection Best Practices
Electro Static Technology (manufacturer of the AEGIS® Shaft Grounding Ring) has another training session coming up on best practices for protecting motor bearings from electrical damage. The next webinar is Friday, February 14th, at 10:00 am Eastern (15:00 GMT). You can sign up here.
We also have a session scheduled for March 9th, which you can sign up for near the top of est-aegis.com/training. Or you can also request a Lunch & Learn or a webinar at a different time.
For licensed engineers: Electro Static Technology is a listed provider to the NCEES‘ CPC Registry. So if you use MyNCEES to track your continuing education credits, you may be able to log this webinar there. (Different states have different requirements for PDH/CPC.)
This training includes:
- The damage: Bearing frosting, fluting, & failure
- The cause: VFD output, parasitic voltage on the shaft, & bearing discharge
- The solution: Shaft Grounding Best Practices for bearing protection
- How to specify: White papers, sample specification language, and more
Attendees will learn when shaft grounding and insulated bearings are needed in inverter-fed motor applications, as well as how to test for the shaft voltage that shaft grounding rings dissipate. Attendance is worth one professional development hour (PDH) or NCEES Continuing Professional Competency (CPC) credit. All attendees will be emailed certificates of completion.
