Safety and Storage of Engines

Motors have live circuits, rotating components and hot surfaces and during operation can cause injury to people. Due to hazards, all transportation, storage, installation, operation and maintenance activities must be carried out by qualified personnel only.

If electric motors baldor ac motors are not installed after the purchase, we recommend storing them in a dry place, with relative air humidity up to 60%, ambient temperature above 5 ° C and below 40 ° C. That the place is free of dust, vibrations, gases, corrosive agents, and that it is in the position in which it was designed and without supporting other objects on it. Engines should be stored to facilitate drainage.

The motors must be completely disconnected from the mains, stopped and surrounded with great care to avoid accidents during installation and maintenance. All professionals involved should use appropriate tools, applying safety standards and regulations, and operators should also be careful about the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

If the motor has heating resistance, it must be energized when the motor is not in operation. This applies in cases where the engine is installed and not used for a long period of time.
