We received a phone call from a motor repair shop that had a power plant client that was under a unit wide shutdown due to a breakdown on a 1000 HP 394 RPM 4000v GE Vertical Solid Shaft Pump Motor. With a replacement motor 9 months out, and a completely destroyed, practically unrepairable original motor, they were asking - "Can you help?"
Lucky for this customer, we had a potential surplus motor in our inventory. Would this work? Below you will see some of the steps and comparisons that were taken to perform this evaluation.
