What are centrifugal pumps?
Optimize a maintenance program for rotating equipment
Some things to think about when it comes to reliability.
Motors, fans, pumps, compressors: IIoT avoids downtime
Think Again: Remote monitoring, sensors, analytics and real-time intelligence is helping those who manufacture, use, and repair motors and attached critical assets to avoid downtime with prescriptive maintenance technologies, says EASA and Plant Engineering research.
AI-based maintenances improve pump uptime
Data-driven information supports advanced predictive maintenance.
Diagnosing motor health: Start with the basics
Temperature, power quality, and torque all are strong indicators of a motor's health.
Six common reasons why electric motors fail
A number of reasons can cause an electric motor to fail. Six reasons are discussed.
VFD efficiency: Three best practices
The use of variable frequency drives (VFDs) has many benefits including improved process control, energy savings, higher reliability and reduced wear and tear.
Using medium-voltage VFDs for better pump process control
How product innovations are revolutionizing pump monitoring and process control management.
Four steps on energy
Industrial buildings are responsible for 31% of global energy consumption, easily exceeding all other building types. While industrial facility ownership and management have generally been cognizant of energy as it relates to cost control and the competitive advantages of being viewed as green and sustainable, that statistic suggests that many energy efficiency opportunities aren't being exploi...
Thinking inside the box: Energy costs drive ac-drive innovations
The types of ac drives used with ac induction motors are V/Hz, encoderless and flux vector. While there are many drives available for synchronous and servo motors, induction motors have the majority of applications. Sensorless vector control is the same as encoderless vector control, which better describes its operation.
Understanding intelligent motor control centers
Lately, there has been a lot of interest in the use of "intelligent" motor control centers (MCCs). But defining intelligence is not as easy as it sounds. To answer the question of intelligence, first take a look at traditional MCC technology.
