Vendor Spotlight – Aegis Bearing Protection Ring

AEGIS SGR™ Bearing Protection Ring™ is the only bearing system guaranteed to eliminate harmful shaft currents thus preventing premature motor failure — for life.

As variable frequency drives induce electrical voltages onto the shafts of AC and DC motors, they can exceed the resistance of bearing lubricant, leaving your motor’s bearings vulnerable to fusion craters, severe pitting, fluting damage, excessive bearing noise and eventually bearing failure.

The AEGIS SGR™ Bearing Protection Ring™ safely channels harmful shaft voltages away from the bearings to the ground, dramatically increasing the life of your bearings and motors.
