Designed to simulate real-world motor operating conditions to prove performance, the Sulzer test center provides data on electrical parameters, winding and bearing temperatures as well as vibration and speed. Motors of almost any size can be tested, with the capability to test multiple motors simultaneously. Innovative features such as a column transformer regulator that stabilizes the incoming current during testing ensures highly accurate results. Customers will also be able to remote witness test their motors online and view the equipment being tested in real-time.

Jim Mugford, President of Sulzer Electro Mechanical Services, commented: “This purpose-built facility offers new and advanced motor testing capabilities to our customers in the Americas. A unique feature is the dedicated power supply to the test center, independent from the service center operations. This allows us to test any motor of any size 24/7 without impacting day-to-day operations. We have also installed a third extra-large test bed giving us the ability to test multiple large motors at the same time. Finally, we are excited to offer remote witness testing capability to our customers as well. This multi-million-dollar investment gives us the most comprehensive repair and test facility for electric motors in the US.”
