What is an Electric Motor Circuit Analysis?

An electric motor circuit analysis is a series of tests that diagnoses the overall health of an electric motor. These tests determine if there are any electrical imbalances or degraded insulation within the motor. When a motor suffers from either of these issues, they can create rogue electrical currents that circulate through the motor, creating excess heat. This excess heat can damage the motor by causing the insulation to degrade faster and cause the motor to run inefficiently which shortens the motor’s lifespan and possibly becomes a safety risk.

Tekwell Services Selected as First Certified SKF Motor Rebuilder to Receive Machine Inspector Training in the U.S.

Several of Tekwell Services’ technicians have recently completed SKF’s Machine Inspector Training. SKF selected Tekwell Services because the company is one of 50 SKF Certified Rebuilder service centers in the U.S., a certification met only by achieving and maintaining the highest standards of quality, process, cleanliness and organization within their service center. This certification is maintained through rigorous, periodic audits of Tekwell’s facilities and procedures. The SKF Machine Inspector Certification training was an intensive three-day, hands-on program that focused on deve


What is Electric Motor Predictive Maintenance?

Everyone has heard of, and understands what electric motor preventive maintenance is, but what exactly is electric motor predictive maintenance? Electric motor predictive maintenance is when you use non-destructive tests such as infrared thermographic studies and electric motor vibration analysis to electric motors currently in service to identify possible problems so that corrections can be made before they become serious problems requiring an unplanned work interruption. Essentially electric motor predictive maintenance tries to “predict” and correct problems before they become
