Baldor-Reliance food safe motor line now features AEGIS bearing protection.
Baldor-Reliance announced that AEGIS Shaft Grounding Rings have been made standard equipment on the company’s Food Safe line of motors to provide increased motor reliability and prevent early bearing failure from EDM. The motor line consists of 25 models with horsepower ratings from ½ HP up to 10 HP. The ring protect motors by channeling VFD-induced bearing current safely to ground. Continuous circumferential rows of conductive microfibers, embedded in the ring’s AEGIS FiberLock channel, surround the motor shaft and provide millions of discharge points. The microfibers are engineered for conductivity and flexibility to minimize wear and prevent breakage.
