Typical Causes of Electric Motor Failure

Typical Causes of Electric Motor Failure

Electric motors have arguably been the sole reason for increased efficiency and productivity in industries like manufacturing, automotive, construction, and so many more. By automating many processes, companies can allow the machinery to handle repetitive work and put the actual workers to better use elsewhere. While electric motors have undoubtedly made many jobs easier and streamlined a multitude of processes, these motors also require maintenance. Even if you regularly maintain your electric motor, there’s a possibility that you’ll experience a motor failure at some point. Luckily, failure doesn’t mean you need to replace your motor. In fact, there are some common reasons for electric motor failures. If you’d like to learn the typical causes of electric motor failure, we’ve got you covered. Continue reading to learn more.

Top Tips For Maintaining Electric Motors

Top Tips For Maintaining Electric Motors

Electric motors have become a standard piece of equipment for many industries in recent years. These industries include construction, manufacturing, scrap yards, automotive, and more. Electric motors have become increasingly efficient over the years and have helped all these industries perform daily operations in a timely and reliable manner. However, many organizations make the mistake of neglecting maintenance, and then they can’t understand why their motors aren’t performing like they used to. In fact, without proper maintenance, some motors may be beyond repair and need a replacement. This not only increases a company’s expenses but will also increase their downtime and decrease productivity. The good news is all of these problems are preventable. Just continue reading our top tips for maintaining electric motors to learn how.

ISRI: New ingredients in the ferrous scrap mix

ISRI2018: New ingredients in the ferrous scrap mix

Making iron from raw materials may be one of the worlds longest-running manufacturing sectors, but the foundry industry in the last several decades has been infused with impressive amounts of change, according to Brett Fisher, a vice president with Wisconsin-based Neenah Foundry.

Another change during that same time has been an expansion in the types of gray and ductile iron produced by the foundry sector, with each new type of iron representing a different mixture of metallic alloys. (more…)

E-Waste News

E-Waste News: 13 times cheaper to extract metals from e-waste than to mine them.

A study published in Environmental Science & Technology this week finally has an answer, suggesting that urban mining of electronic waste for copper and gold in China was actually more cost-effective than digging those metals out of the ground.

Ferrous Scrap Looks Upbeat

Ferrous Scrap Looks Upbeat

For ferrous market participants, the 2018 market outlook has been significantly more upbeat as compared to other commodities, due in part to the sector’s relatively limited dependence on Chinese ferrous scrap import demand, expectations for relief from subsidized steel imports, rising domestic steel output, improving business sentiment, and elevated price levels across the ferrous supply chain.

But the rapidly changing policy landscape has become a key driver for how the scrap industry, including the iron and steel scrap sector, will evolve going forward, impacting the industry’s on-going restructuring, trade flows, and investment in technology.

A tariff of at least 53 percent on all steel imports from 12 countries (Brazil, China, Costa Rica, Egypt, India, Malaysia, Republic of Korea, Russia, South Africa, Thailand, Turkey and Vietnam) with a quota by product on steel imports from all other countries equal to 100 percent of their 2017 exports to the United States, or 3.

Recycled Steel

The World Steel Association (worldsteel) has highlighted the recyclability features of steel. Although steel is the easiest material in the world to recycle, many people are not aware of steel recycling and its benefits.

According to worldsteel, the magnetic property of steel results in easier extraction and separation by shredder. This makes steel the easiest material to recycle. For instance, the scrapping of end-of-life vehicles generates huge quantities of steel scrap. The steel products could be recycled infinite number of times without loss of inherent properties. Moreover, recycling promotes closed material loop and sustainability practices. On top of all of the above, steel recycling is also a major job creator.

The very process of steel recycling offers tremendous environmental benefits. As per estimates, every tonne of scrap recycled results in savings of nearly 1.5 tonnes of carbon dioxide, 1.4 tonnes of iron ore and nearly 740 kilograms of coal. The steel scrap is recycled to make new steel products. Currently, almost 85% of all end-of-life steel products are recycled. The steel recycling process uses only one-third of the energy when matched with the energy consumed for making steel from virgin materials.

Rough estimates suggest that nearly 630 million tonnes of steel is recycled every year. This is more than all other materials combined, thus making steel the true recycling champion, despite its long life span. The study conducted by John Dunham on behalf of the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) indicates that the US scrap recycling industry alone accounted for recycling of 130 million metric tons of materials in 2014.

Global Recycling Day

Global Recycling Day


About Global Recycling Day

Global Recycling Day is an initiative of the Bureau of International Recycling (BIR).

BIR is the global federation of the recycling industry, representing the interests of the global industry.

One of BIR’s key objectives is to promote recycling globally – showcasing its benefits to industry, policy makers and the wider community.

2018 marks the 70th anniversary of BIR (indeed 18th March is its 70th birthday), a landmark year in which to create a day which recognised the vital role recycling and the industry plays in protecting the planet.

The first ever Global Recycling Day will unite people across the world, highlighting the need to conserve our six primary resources (water, air, coal, oil, natural gas and minerals) and celebrating the power of the newly termed “Seventh Resource”- the goods we recycle every day. The new initiative is the brain child of Ranjit Baxi, who announced his vision for a day dedicated to recycling at the inauguration of his Presidency at BIR’s 2015 Dubai Convention.

Global Recycling Day will be a day of action, aimed at building a global approach towards recycling, calling on world leaders, international businesses, communities and individuals to make seven clear commitments in their approach to recycling. Consumers are also being asked to ask themselves some key questions about recycling, to think of it in a new way.
