AEGIS PRO Rings Provide Protection for Large Motors, Turbines, & Generators

By: Aegis

The AEGIS PRO Series of shaft grounding rings is designed to protect large motors in processes and applications where the cost of bearing damage, motor repairs, and downtime is staggering. PRO Rings are available in solid- and split-ring versions for shaft diameters from 2.5″ to 31.5″ (63 to 800 mm). Solid rings are best for installation on new motors or repaired in-service motors before being placed into service, while split rings are designed for fast, easy field installation around the shaft of a coupled motor. PRO rings have six rows of conductive microfibers that encircle the motor shaft entirely, providing millions of contact points that channel stray charge on the shaft away from the bearings and safely to the ground.
