Challenges

Electric motors and generators are the prime drivers of all machinery. Any failure in these, can lead to costly downtime. Proactive maintenance can minimize the risk of such unscheduled breakdowns and increase service life of the motor driven equipment.

Housing and End Plates 

Housing and End Plates

Challenge 1: Loosening of End Plates

Vibration and shock loads can lead to loosening of the through bolts that keep end covers bolted to the housing. This can lead to misalignment and can cause damage to the motor.

Solution: Secure end cover through bolts with LOCTITE 222 Threadlocker

Challenge 2: Loosening of Assembly Screws and Cover Screws

The threaded assemblies can work themselves loose under dynamic loads. This can lead to excessive vibration in the machine and can damage the housing and frame.

Solution: Lock assembly and cover screws with LOCTITE 243 Threadlocker

Challenge 3: Ingression of Moisture and Foreign Particles

The interface between end plates and the housing allow foreign particles to enter the motor housing which can significantly reduce the motor performance.

Solution: Seal the end plate and housing interface with LOCTITE 518 Flange Sealant

Shaft Mountings 

Shaft Mountings

Challenge 1: Loosening of Bearing or Commutator

Electric motors pick up the required rotational speed with a jerk. This repeated jerk can lead to loosening of the shaft mounted component like bearing and commutator. Loosening of cylindrical fittings can reduce transmitted torque and damage the components.

Solution: Mount cylindrical components with LOCTITE 641 Retaining Compound

Challenge 2: Fretting Corrosion on Bearing

The air gap trapped between the bearing and shaft allows corrosion to build up and seize the bearing on the shaft. In such cases, the bearing will have to be replaced with a new one, resulting in downtime and scrap cost.

Solution: Fit bearings on shaft with LOCTITE 641 Bearing Retainer

Mounting Bolt 

Mounting Bolt

Challenge: Misalignment Due to Loose Mounting Bolts

Motor mounting bolts keep the motor frame in place and maintain alignment with the driven equipment. However, the mounting motor bolts can loose clamp loads under vibrational shocks and cause misalignment which can damage the rotational components.

Solution: Fasten mounting bolts with LOCTITE 277 Threadlockers
