Electro Static Technology offers Universal Mounting Kit
By Alyssa Dalton
Electro Static Technology has introduced the Aegis SGR Bearing Protection Ring, which it says helps protect the bearings of VFD-driven motors from electrical damage, and the new Aegis Universal Mounting Kit (U-Kit) which simplifies its mounting on most AC motor shafts. The kit also includes the Aegis grounding ring and mounting hardware for most motor designs. EST says the ring prevents electrical “fluting” damage in the bearing, bearing noise, costly motor repairs/replacements, and downtime by safely channeling VFD-induced bearing currents to ground, and is ideal for HVAC service contractors, motor repair shops, plant maintenance departments, and OEMs.
