Upcoming Highlights for June 2016

Roy’s Electrical Service

Jamie Roy, who serves as president and shop foreman at Roy’s Electrical Service, Cheswold, Del., talks with Electrical Apparatus about his company, whose customers include food processing companies and a paint manufacturing facility.  The firm also provides service and repair for a university in the area and for municipal government.

Safe Motor Storage

Storing a motor for future use involves more than tucking it away in a corner somewhere. Motors in storage are subject to deterioration caused by several factors—heat, humidity, vibration, insects, even rodents—and measures must be taken to prevent damage from these causes. Few formal guidelines for protecting stored motors exist. In this article, Engineering Editor Richard Nailen provides a few.
