Q: What Does Vacuum Pressure Impregnation Do?
A: The process of dipping a motor in varnish and baking it can cause air to get trapped in the windings. With vacuum pressure impregnation from Magneto Electric, all air and moisture is removed from the windings. Not only does VPI improve the mechanical bond of the insulation system, it can also improve the electrical characteristics.


Q: What Are the Different Types of Pumps?
A: There are several different types of pumps, including sump, turbine, gear, centrifugal, piston, and submersible. At Magneto Electric we can provide repairs to these types of pumps for issues like bearing and seal replacement, leaks, refurbishment, alignment and more.


Q: Why Do I Need a Professional Confined Space Repair Technician?
A: To have the ability to perform repairs in confined spaces or hazardous areas, you are required to have a specialized certification that’s done in addition to normal health and safety training.


Q: What are the Advantages of Predictive Maintenance?
A: Monitoring your equipment for problems and planning ahead for maintenance is a great way to save time and money, as well as prevent catastrophic failures. Among the predictive maintenance services offered by Magneto Electric are winding analysis, laser alignment and more.


Q: What are the Differences between AC and DC Motors?
A: Even though both AC and DC motors essentially serve the same function, converting electrical energy into mechanical energy, they are slightly different in the way they are constructed, powered and controlled. The main difference between the two types of motors is the power source. AC motors are powered by an alternating current (AC) and DC motors are powered with direct currents (DC), like batteries.


Q: What is the Purpose of a Sump Pump?
A: The basic definition of a sump pump is a pump that is used to remove water accumulating in a sump basin found in the basement of a home or lower levels of a business. The sump pump protects your basement from flooding by removing the water that could potentially flood your home.
