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

How to service a magnetic contactor?

Magnetic contactor is a familiar device for control electrical motor,pump,capacitor and others.When it operate for long time,the main contact must be checked and cleaned due to sparking current during energized and de-energized.

We also must cleaning the dust or foreign material to avoid magnetic contactor mechanism stuck or cannot function properly.Normally i perform the services and cleaning jobs every 6 months.It depend on operating condition and last services.

During this services,we can checked the condition of contact point either is ok or not good.If the contact already worn or not in good shape,it need to replaced with a new one.It important to ensure the performance and operation is smooth and stable and current can flow through the contact without any problem. read more

How to install water pump completed with alignment?

On my last post,i already showed my video about how to install soft gland packing seal for water pump.This time i want share some information on my video how to install water pump complete with alignment.

This is common technique for maintenance person to install back the water pump to electric motor.To operated water pump,we need connected with electric motor using coupling.But it is not easy as we thinks if not do it with the correct technique.

If motor coupling and water pump not parallel to each other or not in correct alignment,it can cause bearing damage and more serious it can cause motor winding defect or water pump impeller jammed. read more

How to replaced soft gland packing seal?

Normally sealed for rotating shaft have a 2 methods.It is a mechanical seal and soft gland packing.Soft gland packing is a conventional shaft seal for water pump and rotating equipment system.

The main purpose is for prevent water leaking through the shaft during rotating process.It also provide a seal to create compression to push the water through the propeller and pump out the water.

The advantage of soft gland packing seal such as easy to install,low friction,no wear on shaft or sleeve,long life span,flexible with shaft and low maintenance.This time i want share my experience how to replaced a soft gland packing seal.

For more detail technique for replacement works,please watch my video below.Please use the proper tools and take a necessary precaution about hazard and the important is SAFETY FIRST :-

Testing electrical & electronic component

To be a good troubleshooter,we must know how to testing electrical and electronic components.Several components are common used in electrical and electronic device or equipment.This technique is a common essential for the troubleshooter.

The important measuring device that we should have to perform a testing task is a ” Multimeter”.This meter is used to measure continuity or resistance in components.

If you not understand what is this,please read my last post title ” what is multimeter” and ” how to use multimeter?”.I explain detail in my video about multimeter. Read more
