Ensure your motor heater circuits are working properly in order to keep moisture away from motor windings.
Strip or space heaters provide effective heating of the interior spaces of electric motors and other machines. They are meant to provide a defense against the effects of water contamination or penetration on the electric coils and elements of the motor or electric insulation systems. When working properly operators are rewarded with the performance expected from their motors. However, since they are installed deep inside the motor...out of sign might mean... out of mind, their hidden utility may be forgotten, or overlooked.
When heaters aren't properly monitored or not energized at proper times, condensing moisture can lead to possible irreversible damage to motors interior components. Costly, unanticipated problems can result.
