Shaft Voltage Measurement

Typical shaft voltage trace; magnetically induced current

Shaft Current Solutions has experienced personnel for onsite comprehensive surveys looking for areas of potential problems. We will provide recommendations of best practices to mitigate present or future issues by determining if electromagnetic or electrostatic sources are present.

Shown are typical damage photos showing what excessive voltage and current can do to machinery parts. Fluting, pitting, spark tracks and frosting are evidence of the destruction taking place inside your machine.

Loss of material will eventually cause radial or axial movement, erroneous information on your proximity probes and increased temperature or vibration. Before you get knocked offline and spend millions on replacing parts, get to the root of the issue by having experienced engineers onsite sooner rather than later.
