Induction Motor Project

Induction Motor Project

The above picture are of a new range of Oil Seals and ‘V’ Rings we have recently designed and manufactured that were tested and passed to fit on a range of High Voltage Induction Motors being used in Hazardous area environments around the world where there are extreme testing requirements on the materials for temperature, media, dynamic parameters, and of course influences like Ozone which High Voltage motors produce. The customer, a major multinational manufacturer, was faced with finding a manufacturer who could manufacture all the Seals and Gaskets to seal their Terminal boxes and motor case bodies, as well as manufacture the other items like O rings and Oil Seals, V Rings and Packing’s.

In 2007 our customer began to realise that their Products, Drawings and Materials were becoming out of date and starting not to comply with changes in International Standards and by 2012 almost all of their products were failing to meet the latest International standards. They needed a Seal and Gasket manufacturer who could supply all their required parts but to meet the very latest IEC standards. By the time they approached us at the end of April of this year they had failed to find a single Rubber manufacturer in their home country or even on their own continent who could help and evidently were faced with the possibility of only being able to sell their products in their own country.

Thankfully someone gave them our details and less than 6 months since they first contacted us, we have successfully Designed, Developed and Tested a complete range of Seals, Gaskets, O Rings, Oil Seals, V Rings and Packing’s for their product range, not just to their complete satisfaction but also to the complete satisfaction of BASEEFA who have now fully certified the range.

We are very proud of our involvement with this Multinational manufacturer and we are even more proud that for the first time in over ninety years this company has started buying British made products from a British Manufacturer.

If you use similar products why not talk to us today, who knows what tomorrow will bring.
