Wet three phase Induction Motor Effects

Flooded or Wet Induction Motors First of all, try not to! When designing a marine of industrial installation, you need to consider the IP, or ingress protection rating of your Induction motor. By choosing a motor with a high enough IP rating, it is possible that when you submerge your Induction Motor, nothing will happen. […]

Single Phasing In Three Phase Marine Induction Motors

Single Phasing Faults In Marine & Land Induction Motors Single phasing is the term used when one of the three stator windings in an induction motor is not ‘energised’. Three reasons for this happening in a Marine (& Land) environment are:- Mechanical vibration – causing the terminal nuts to become loose, and therefore disconnecting a […]

Industrial & Marine Induction Motor Servicing Tips

Marine Induction Motor Servicing Tips Safety & Isolation of supply when marine induction motor servicing. Taking a casual approach to marine induction motor servicing & electricity can prove fatal. This is especially true when we are talking about three-phase motors, as they operate in the UK & EU at 400 Volts Alternating Current (400 VAC). […]

Tips for Servicing Marine & Land Based Induction Motors

Safety & Isolation of supply of induction motors. First tip, taking a casual approach to electricity can prove fatal. This is especially true when we are talking about three-phase motors, as they operate in the UK & EU at 400 Volts Alternating Current (400 VAC). Marine installations typically operate at an even higher 440 Volt […]
