Baldor has announced the availability of Electro Static Technology’s Aegis SGR bearing protection ring as an option on the company’s Reliance motors. This product is designed to protect the motor bearings from shaft currents induced by adjustable speed drives. Electro Static Technology guarantees that any motor up to 100 hp/75 kW will not fail from electrical bearing fluting damage for the life of the motor when this bearing protection ring is installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. If such damage should occur, the company will replace the motor bearings free of charge.
