PEV accreditation provides customers with third party assurance of improved reliability, increased productivity and reduced energy consumption.
(PRWEB) August 18, 2014
Advanced Energy is pleased to announce that JCI Industries, Inc. recently achieved Proven Efficiency Verification accreditation for motor repair – a third-party quality assurance program designed and delivered by Advanced Energy to ensure consistency in repairs while achieving energy savings. JCI Industries, Inc. demonstrates the necessary standards and procedures to return repaired motors to “like new” condition and performance.
Advanced Energy’s Proven Efficiency Verification program assesses motor repair facilities’ standards and processes for the repair of ac-induction, three-phase electric motors used in industrial and commercial applications. The program involves a thorough onsite evaluation of a motor service center’s ability to maintain efficiency during the repair process, which includes assessment of:
- Specific equipment operation, maintenance and calibration
- Choice of parts and materials for repair
- Skills of shop employees and their training opportunities
- Shop management and their commitment to quality
- Repair procedures and associated documentation
Once the evaluation is completed, the motor repair center is required to perform before-and-after rewind testing in Advanced Energy’s motor test lab. There are also annual renewal requirements to be met each year to maintain accreditation.
“We focus on providing customers with the best possible solution to meet their needs,” said Gary Edwards, Sales Engineer, JCI Industries, Inc. “PEV accreditation takes our high quality standards to the next level, and offers customers a third party assurance of improved reliability, increased productivity and reduced energy consumption from a partner they can trust. The resulting efficiency and cost reduction directly benefits our customers.”
“The service centers in the Proven Efficiency Verification program demonstrate they have the people, processes, equipment and procedures to restore efficiency during motor rewind,” said Dr. Emmanuel Agamloh, Senior Motors and Drives Consultant, Advanced Energy. “Motor repair vendors who maintain efficiency as outlined in our program are more successful at reducing overall operating costs and increases process reliability for their customers.”
