Which of Your Process Motors are Likely to Fail?

wl 4 sept 15 1Some of your process motors could be close to failure with others running inefficiently.
 A motor running hot could be due to the mains power supply, the motor itself, or its load.   Sometimes the problem is not apparent and it is often difficult to find the cause, as many motors are tucked away in hard-to-access areas.

Precision meets Connectivity

21 aug 15 3Be ready to change the way you align. PRUFTECHNIK presents ROTALIGN touch, the revolutionary new cloud-based laser shaft alignment system with touchscreen and integrated mobile connectivity. But what exactly is going to change?

bearing10 6 july 15The reliability of most rotating equipment is almost inevitably linked directly to bearing life, and it is estimated bearing failure is responsible for almost 21% of these equipment failures (Bloch, 2011).  

Research into bearing failures  shows that just over half of these are a result of contamination of the bearing oil (Fig 1). Clearly it is therefore essential to ensure that contamination of the bearing lubricant is minimised and if possible eliminated if optimum bearing life is to be achieved thereby improving the equipment reliability (MTBF).

Eliminate 52% of bearing failures with LabTecta®66

pump 6 july 15Save your bearings with LabTecta®66, which can reduce bearing oil contamination from 83% to 0.0003%.


Research shows that 52% of bearing failures are due to contamination of the bearing oil, which represent 20.8% of all rotating equipment failures.

LabTecta®66 is a labyrinth design bearing protection seal, which is proven to increase equipment reliability in pumps, electric motors, fans, pillow blocks, steam turbines and gearboxes.
