JJ LOUGHRAN HAS RECENTLY upgraded its repair workshop burn-off oven to a new Rotary Engineering unit, designed specifically for the electric motor repair industry.
With an internal volume of 10m 3 , the new oven will enable JJ Loughran to more than double its rewinding capability.

The burn-off oven cleans motors and their parts through a process known as pyrolysis – which sees parts heated in a controlled manner to burn off the insulation, resins, paint and other contaminants but leaving the motor stator undamaged.

The high-temperature burn-off oven can operate up to 400°C to safely burn off old insulations before a full motor rewind. A correctly controlled burnoff process eliminates damage to the stator during the repair. A water injection system regulates oven temperature if 'runaway' conditions occur, with a 450°C ultimate safety cut out.

To meet regulatory, and JJ Loughran's internal environmental standards, the burn-off oven provided includes an afterburner chamber, which operates in excess of 850°C to convert the output from the main chamber into carbon dioxide and water vapour.

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changes policies these days, I'm hesitating to make any comments in this quarter's update for fear of it being outdated by the time it is is published.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.
