Of the varied and numerous maintenance purchases made by industry every day, from an operating cost viewpoint, few can be as important as that of an electric motor.
Why is this?
Because 65% of all industrial electricity produced in the UK is used to drive electric motors. If we take an 11k.W. motor for example with a purchase cost of around £700, the running cost will be approximately £67000 over a 10 year period!
It is because the electric motor is such a high energy user that minimum efficiency standards have recently been introduced and will be raised even higher over the next few years.
