MOTORS & GENERATORS

Rotating electric machines are long lasting equipment if followed the known predictive and preventive maintenance programs. Issues like winding contamination, voltage surges, current peaks and excessive vibration may drastically reduce operation time.

M&I Electric Brazil has a field team with over 15 years of experience in the market and a complete structure with tools and test instruments to identify problems and to provide on-site correction services.

Transformers

Transformers are used for electrical power transmission from one circuit to another through a magnetically coupled circuit. Despite the static operation trait, certain problems like short-circuits between spirals and a high level of partial discharges are often observed.

M&I Electric relies on complete instrumentation for testing and validation of proper functioning of the transformer under maintenance.
