Long-Term Bearing Protection
Electro Static Technology (Mechanic Falls, ME) has introduced the Split-Ring AEGIS Bearing Protection Ring with Conductive Epoxy Mounting, which is designed for easy installation in order to protect the bearings in VFD-driven motors. According to the company, the Split-Ring kit offers effective, long-term protection of AC motor bearings from electrical damage by safely channeling VFD-induced bearing currents to ground. Additional features include:
- A 360° circumferential inner ring of conductive microfibers, which are protected from breakage, loosening, or falling out.
- A silver-filled conductive epoxy that takes less than 10 minutes to apply.
- A maintenance-free construction that works with virtually no friction or wear, regardless of motor RPM, and that is unaffected by dirt, grease, or other contaminants.
