Conductive Epoxy Enables Drill-Free Installation
The AEGIS SGR Bearing Protection Ring from Electro Static Technology can now be installed quickly and easily with conductive epoxy, eliminating the need to drill bracket holes in the motor’s end bell, according to the company. For motors controlled by variable frequency drives (VFDs), the SGR channels motor-shaft currents away from bearings and safely to ground.
The motor shaft and end bell must be clean and free of any coatings, paint, or other conductive material. The installer simply applies the adhesive to the back side of the SGR, centers the SGR around the motor shaft, and holds the ring in place to allow the adhesive to set. Units are guaranteed for one year from the date of purchase against defective materials and workmanship.
