4 Things to Look for in an Industrial Electric Motor Asset Management Program


Detailed Documentation and Record Keeping

An excellent industrial electric motor asset management program keeps detailed records, preferably in a database the can be easily accessed. You need to know everything about your electric motor: specifications, hours in service, operational data, details about any repairs or services made for the motor, and any other information that may be helpful for someone pulling it back to active duty.

Fast Response Time and Delivery of Asset When Needed

Your industrial electric motor asset management program is supported by a knowledgeable staff who are on call 24/7/365 and can deliver your motor at a moment’s notice when you need it most. This staff also should be able to remove the old motor and get the one from the asset management program up and running.

Regular, Scheduled Maintenance

Just because the motor isn’t running, doesn’t mean it doesn’t need maintenance. A solid industrial electric motor asset management program makes sure that your motor gets the service that it needs according to the manufacturer’s or your specifications.

Climate Controlled, Vibration Free Storage Facility

Electric motors should be kept indoors within a climate controlled facility. The temperature should remain consistent so that humidity and temperature changes do not create condensation. The facility should also be free of vermin such as rodents, birds and snakes who have a particular fondness for drains and ventilation ports.

One other factor that is not often considered is that the motor needs to be kept in a vibration-free environment. Vibrations from nearby train tracks or highways, or even from heavy equipment or vehicles used nearby can damage vibration-sensitive bearings.
