Kinectrics Expands Rotating Machines Testing Capabilities

August 28, 2015

Kinectrics' Electrical and Safety Testing (EST) Group has recently purchased new digital Electromagnetic Core Imperfection Detection (EL CID) equipment to expand its testing services for rotating machines and generators. EL CID testing is accepted worldwide for reliable and safe detection of stator core inter-laminar faults.

Using a full range of advanced features, the new EST Group EL CID instrument can be used to test stator core for turbo-generators, hydro-generators, and large motors.

EL CID digital equipment also provides numerous advantages over traditional analog test equipment. Tests are repeatable and immediate test results are available for local analysis. EL CID digital testing determines if defects are present on the core surface, under conductors, or core sub-surface. Results can be merged to obtain a complete picture of stator core condition and, trend results.

The EL CID digital equipment provides an excellent test of quality assurance.
