Electro Static Technology, manufacturer of the patent pending AEGIS Shaft Grounding Ring, is pleased to announce an exclusive distribution agreement with Morgan Industrial Carbon for Australia and New Zealand. Information on AEGIS SGR is available at http://www.morgancarbon.com.au. Detailed technical information is available at http://www.est-aegis.com.

When AC motors are employed with variable frequency drives (VFD), shaft currents discharge through the motor bearings, causing fluting, pitting, excessive noise, and motor failure. By safely channeling harmful shaft current away from the motor bearings to ground, the Shaft Grounding Ring prevents electrical bearing damage and motor failures it causes.

“Distributing AEGIS SGR is an exciting opportunity to continue our mission to provide engineered solutions by combining application experience and materials technology,” said Derek Nelson, General Manager of Morgan Industrial Carbon. “Improving reliability of motors is critical in today’s manufacturing environment, and the new conductive micro fibre shaft earthing solution from Electro Static Technology achieves the highest level of protection to prevent electrical bearing discharges that can cause motor failure.”

“We have a tremendous respect for Morgan Carbon’s expertise in providing quality industrial components and solutions for their customers in the Australian and New Zealand,” said Adam Willwerth, Sales and marketing Manager at Electro Static Technology. “We look forward to working with Morgan Carbon to provide AEGIS shaft grounding solutions in their markets.”

The new AEGIS SGR™ Conductive MicroFiber™ Shaft Grounding Ring improves the reliability of any system that uses variable frequency drives (VFD) by dramatically extending motor life – ideal for production plants, manufacturers, motor OEM’s, motor service and repair shops, mechanical contractors, and in-house maintenance departments. Maintenance-free, the AEGIS SGR is unaffected by dirt, grease, or other contaminants and provides the longest-lasting protection available.

AEGIS SGR is available in standard sizes to fit most AC motors ranging from 8 mm to 153 mm motor shafts. Visit http://www.morgancarbon.com.au for a parts list or contact SGR-AEGIS@morgancarbon.com.au .
