BPK group, used for image in blog outlining New Application Brief and VFD Bearing Damage

Check out our newest application brief: “Bearing Protection Kits in Universities”.  This application brief covers the usage of Helwig’s Bearing Protection Kits at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. UNL was looking for reliable bearing protection after they experienced motor failure due to VFD bearing damage, despite using a popular competitor’s solution. They tested our BPK-4 shaft grounding solution and were convinced that our unit would protect their motors from harmful shaft discharge. UNL now has Helwig’s BPK solution specified into their requirements for any motors controlled by VFDs, thus preventing further VFD bearing damage.

Other universities that use Helwig’s Bearing Protection Kits include:

  • University of Pittsburgh
  • University of Syracuse
  • Arizona State University
  • Brigham Young University
  • Colorado State University
  • Northern Colorado University
  • Penn State University
  • University of Illinois
  • University of California—San Francisco
  • And many more!
