Bearing Protectors - New Products
…think of it as an insurance policy to prevent premature motor bearing failure for ‘critical’ items of plant on a process line where downtime is deemed taboo!....
…….it’s a small price to pay by comparison
With Engineering Carbon Products (ECP) forming an integral part of the ‘eCarbon’ group, we are now much better positioned to be able to bring new and innovative products to market which can be fitted retrospectively or indeed factory fitted.
A build up of static or induced currents will discharge via the path of least electrical resistance, normally via the bearings and can lead to premature motor failure in as little as six months in extreme cases.
‘Bearing Protectors’ can save thousands of pounds in unplanned machine and plant down time as well as the added cost of repair.
In operation, these units allow the safe passage of static and induced currents to safely discharge to earth and thus prevent the effects of bearing ‘pitting’, noisy bearings and ultimately premature bearing failure.
