Reducing the Cost of Locomotive Traction Motor Overhaul Process & Procedures
During the overhaul of traction motors (TMs), the first and most important operation is the perfect cleaning and drying of stator and rotor windings prior to testing and diagnosing.
Poor cleaning, rinsing and drying will cause:
- - False diagnostic test readings and will lead to unnecessary rewinding irs operations
- - Residual dirt and carbon dust on stators and rotors will contaminate varnish tanks
- - Residual detergent left in windings after cleaning will deteriorate insulation and attract humidity, all of which will lead to premature motor failures
The described cleaning and drying technology addresses and resolves these issues completely.
