The machine was fully stripped and rewound with a full, resin-rich, coil system, and each coil was tested to withstand 14,200 Volts to earth, and between phases.
With the addition of a double flood varnishing process, the motor windings are superbly protected against external contaminants while remaining flexible enough to cope with the rigorous demands on a motor that is housed in a cold and damp environment.
The winding process was completed in 7 working weeks, delivering a more cost-effective solution to replacing the machine, which would not only be much more expensive, but also have a 20 week lead time.
This Project was delivered in-line with our commitments to Health and Safety, Quality and the Environment through our ISO Management Systems.
GES have completed many successful projects for this client, and look forward to providing this specialist and unique service for many years to come.
