Milwaukee, Wis. (Manufacturing.net) — Helwig Corporation has launched a new line of shaft grounding systems intended to protect motors from bearing failure, which causes a great deal of motor downtime in industrial applications. The company says this kit, which fits most motors and shaft sizes, is easy to install, and even works well in contaminated environments. The grounding systems divert static and induced electrical currents in the motor shafts away from the bearings, which protects them from pitting and potential damage. The Bearing Protector will offer years of service while maintaining low shaft potential, which minimizes the chance of having stray currents pass through the bearings.
