When Downtime Is Not An Option.



The Green Benefits of Rewinding Your Electric Motor

The Green Benefits of Rewinding Your Electric Motor

Once your electric motor kicks the bucket you’ve only got two options: replace or rewind. However, owners are not that full of trust when it comes to electric motor rewinding. Because of faulty practices in the past, the process had earned quite a nasty reputation. Motor owners still believe that rewinding the motor reduces its efficiency, making it the less ideal of the two alternatives. This also led many to replace their old motor with a high-efficiency variant because of the belief that it was better for the environment. The truth is that rewinding your motor is the better choice for both you and the environment if you have a licensed expert like San Diego’s PCE handle the process.

Rewinding Motors is better for the Environment

The U.S. Department of Commerce reported that there are well over 12 million electric motors in the US alone. The same report warns that a quarter of these motors will become inoperative during the next year.

The price of the energy is in constant flux, but some efforts should still be focused on electric motors. These devices use a lot of power to operate every day. The significance of their performance led to the development of cutting-edge green solutions. 

However, if you compare the carbon footprint of buying a brand new premium motor to rewinding one, the latter option is still significantly more eco-friendly as all the parts and materials in the old engine are essentially recycled. 

Many companies who rely on electric motors dread the moment these devices begin to manifest signs of failure. They immediately worry about the cost increase that comes with the reduced efficiency of the motor. But they tend to forget the toll replacing these motors with new ones has on the environment. Therefore, experts have developed new techniques that are meant to improve the efficiency of the rewinding process to ensure motors are back to their full capacity after it.

Basically, not only will electric motor rewinding cost less than replacing it, it helps the environment as this reduces the toll production and manufacture of a new motor take on the environment without compromising the motor’s efficiency.

However, in order to ensure that electric motor rewinding is truly good for the environment, you should only have licensed staff handle the process. The misconception that a rewound motor will be less efficient is outdated. This could only happen if the motor isn’t rewound by a licensed repair company. All the advancements made in the field of motor rewinding including the technique, quality assurance, and discipline ensure that the motor you get back after the process is as good as new, sometimes even better.

Experts in the industry argue that rewinding could improve the reliability of a motor as well as its uptime. This can lead to a significant cost decrease and is critical to preserving the already fragile environment.
