How to justify a motor replacement
My Motor has been running for years why should I do anything about it? It may very well be costing you lots of money. Some motors are inherently inefficient from New, or the Installation has been sub optimal.
Conduct a Motor Test and Calculate what the inefficiency is, then with the help of the 3Phi Energy Calculator create a financial justification within minutes.
This example of a 45kW Motor within Impedance Imbalance of 10% has a Payback in under One Year.
You may wish to add to the justification the Motor Test, showing a Winding defect. Reliability gains through UpTime improvements will almost certainly be a dominant financial driver.
