Electro Static Technology: Bearing Protection Ring

January 3, 2011


Quickly installed without detaching coupled equipment, the Split-Ring AEGIS™ Bearing Protection Ring with Conductive Epoxy Mounting protects a/c motor bearings from electrical damage, safely grounding shaft currents induced by variable frequency drives (VFDs), says the company. When installed by HVAC service contractors, motor repair shops, and plant maintenance departments, the ring prevents bearing noise, downtime, and costly motor repairs/replacements.
