Testing Services

Continental Electrical Motor Services offers a wide variety of testing to ensure that your motor or generator will exceed your performance expectations. our testing capabilities consist of:

  • AC Testing to 4160 volts/DC testing to 800 volts
  • Dynamometer testing: AC horizontal to 900 hp
  • Core loss testing, conventional, or utilizing digistal EL CID
  • Hipot, surge, and power factor testing of all size motors and generators
  • Switchgear testing and maintenance

Vacuum Pressure Impregnation Systems (VPI)

A motor winding that undergoes VPI is virtually impervious to oil, moisture, and chemical contaminants. VPI provides 100% solid mass structure that gies you the greatest mechnical strength a cooler running motor due to superior heat dissipation, with the highest level of environmental protection. Used for AC and DC motor stators, armatures, field coils, transformers, and applications such as lifting magnets.

Dynamic Balancing

Proper balancing promotes longer bearing life. Nearly anything that rotates, or is supported in bearings that allow it to rotate, needs balancing to ensure quality performance and equipent reliability. Continental Electrical Motor Services can provide dynamic balancing up to 15,000 lbs in our service centers or provide balancing services.

Laser Alignment

Laser alignment increases operating time of equipment, increases productivity, and decreases down time. Laser alignment, performed by a properly trained technician provides more accurate alignment than feeler gauges or dial indicators in less time.

Replacement Coils and Winding

All coils are inspected for fit, finish, electrical soundness, and dielectric integrity. Coils are hi-pot tested to ensure insulation values and surge tested at 100% of the determined original test voltage. Continental Electrical Motor Services can test the following types of coils in-house:

  • Armature Coils
  • Brake Coils
  • DC Field and Interpole Coils
  • AC Synchronous Field Coils
  • 460 volt AC to 13,800 volt AC VPI Form > Wound Stator Coils
  • Specialty Control Coils
