A perennial question in plant maintenance circles is whether it's better to repair or replace an electric motor that has failed. Will a repaired motor retain it's efficiency rating? Join the webcast to better understand the key criteria to consider when facing this decision, and learn about a new accreditation program relating to the repair of electric motors.

Among the information included in this webcast:

  • What are the key factors to consider when determining to repair or replace a failed electric motor?
  • Can a repaired motor maintain it's reliability and efficiency rating?
  • How does ANSI/EASA AR100-2010: Recommended Practice for the Repair of Rotating Electrical Apparatus support plant maintenance practices?
  • Can maintenance managers be assured that motors are repaired following this ANSI/EASA Standard?
