Quartzelec To Supply American Chemical Plant
Following and extended tendering process, Quartzelec’s Rugby Rotating Machine Services business has been awarded a contract to manufacture and supply a spare main loop compressor motor for a chemical plant in the USA.

The new machine is from the company’s UNIPAK ‘heritage’ range of cage induction motors, rated at 7,000HP, on frame size CC710U2000 and will run on the local industrial 13.2kV, 60Hz supply.

The motor is required to be air-cooled via a NEMA WP-II enclosure with side-mounted filtration units fitted to reduce the ingress of any small particles into the motor’s internal air circuit.

The design engineers based in Rugby, UK, have extensive experience in enhancing, updating and modifying original machine specifications and, for this particular machine, were able to update and adapt the air-filter design allowing the filters to be easily removed and replaced whilst the motor is in operation – which will result in significantly reduced downtime and lower ongoing maintenance costs for the client.

The compressor motor build is in progress, with the delivery of the new motor scheduled later this year

Around the world, businesses, innovators, policymakers, and cities are recognising that our take, make, waste linear economy – in which finite resources are extracted to make products that are used, generally not to their full potential, and then thrown away – is no longer working for people or the planet.

Given the speed at which our government changes policies these days, I'm hesitating to make any comments in this quarter's update for fear of it being outdated by the time it is is published. We are at the beginning of a new year, and there will be many new opportunities to watch out for. It's also a good opportunity to take stock of the last 12 months and reflect on what was another remarkable year for our industry.

Against a backdrop of increasing energy costs, significant savings can be made by upgrading old motors to more efficient modern alternatives. However, simply swapping a motor for a modern equivalent is not always practical or even possible. With this in mind, Thomas Marks, General Manager and Secretary at the Association for Electrical and Mechanical Trades, looks at how a motor's efficiency can be improved as part of a repair or refurbishment and highlights some things you should consider.
