How IoT Is Redefining the Future of the Electronics Industry

As an increasing number of devices get connected to the cyberspace, we are embarking on a new journey towards creating a fast-paced industry called the Internet of Things (IoT). In 2015, over 15.4 billion devices were connected to the internet, and the Information Handling Services (IHS) predicts that this number will go up to 30.7 billion by 2020. According to General Electric, IoT will add $10 to $15 trillion to the worldwide GDP growth by 2030.Thus, it is time for companies to think about the long-term implications of IoT on their businesses.The Internet of Things refers to a connected network of devices with an on/off switch to the internet. These devices can interact with the environment and other devices that are a part of the same network. Read More

Trendy Protective Clothing For Electrical Workers

Any sort of work which includes an exposure to electrical circuits and equipment involves its own set of risks. Particularly, electricians are exposed to these hazards on a regular basis. We commonly know that electric shock is the only danger electricians are exposed to, but little do we know that electric arc explosion is an equally perilous threat, which can generate blistering heat called arc flash that can cause lethal injuries. read more

How To Replace Bearing For Electric Motor?

With advance technology,we can found the root cause for abnormal sound using Vibration Analysis for rotating equipment.When vibration owner confirm that bearing are defected,we must plan to change or replace a bearing.This time I would like to share video completed method how to replace electric motor bearing.

This is common activities for Electrician to perform bearing replacement during daily routine or turnaround / shutdown.We must ensure all bearing condition for our electrical motor in good performance to prolong bearing life time and can avoid unplanned downtime that can increase maintenance cost.

How To Disconnect THOMAS Coupling From Induction Motor Hub?

Hi,

This post I would like to share video how to disconnect or dis-engage THOMAS Coupling from motor hub during maintenance works.In this video,technician plan to replace new bearing for the motor due to abnormal sound detected from bearing.Normally in industry or chemical plant,Thomas Coupling is the one of common application to connect electric motor as a drive and pump as a rotary equipment for the process.

The main reason why Thomas coupling are used :-

  1. To transmit power from one shaft to another, efficiently and effectively.
  2. To accommodate slight shaft misalignment which develop in service.

Thomas coupling application also can protect our equipment from mechanical damage and misalignment. Below several protection when using Thomas coupling :-

1. Absorb shock, vibration and pulsations.

2. Decrease cross load on bearings.

3. Accept load reversals.

4. Minimize backlash. Read More

How To Use Bearing Induction Heater ?

This post I would like to share a video How To Use Bearing Induction Heater.Normally when we dealing with bigger motor or pump bearing,it’s quite difficult to install bearing into shaft because a tolerance gap is small.If we use a bearing pusher to install bigger size bearing into shaft,it’s risky and probably percentage of bearing was damage is high.That why we must use bearing induction heater for more safe and easy bearing installation.

In this video, I used old version of SKF bearing induction heater but still working perfectly without any problem.For latest version and model of Induction Heater from SKF,please visit SKF website  Read More
