Winding and ground-wall insulation degradation rapidly accelerates with heat; for every 10 degree C increase above specified motor nameplate operating temperature, a motor’s insulation strength—and its life expectancy—is halved.
Kaeser’s whitepaper, "Compressed Air System Leaks: The Cost, Common Culprits, Detection, and Repair" explains how to determine the annual cost per compressed air leak, sheds light on where most leaks occur, and describes best practices for leak detection.
A Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) is a type of controller that drives an electric motor by varying the frequency and voltage supplied to that electric motor. This white paper describes the operation of variable speed drives specifically for use in rotary screw air compressors.
Here’s a quick way to gain a better understanding of the theory behind dew point temperature. The answers to these 10 frequently asked questions will help you better understand dew point temperature leading to a more reliable, repeatable and accurate measurement.
