High Core Integrity Burnout Oven Process and Core-Loss Testing:
Bradleys has the capability to core-loss test a stator of any size. Our procedures, as documented in our ISO 9001:2008 Program, requires testing the stator core before and after the burnout process. There is disagreement within the motor industry today about the impact of the burnout oven temperature on core stability. Bradleys burnout process strictly adheres to the temperature guidelines established by the OEM or EASA Tech Note 17 to protect the integrity of the core. The state-of-the-art burnout ovens, fully equipped with temperature controllers and water quenching systems, maintain the appropriate temperature ranges during the burnout cycles, effectively protecting the core materials. Oftentimes, the core-loss test results improve after the burnout.
Bradleys CLR Process Avoids the Expense of Restacking:
Using thermography testing equipment, Bradleys locates and repairs all core "hot spots" to within a tolerance of less than 10°CΔ anywhere throughout the core iron assembly. If part of the core lamination is damaged, Bradleys CLR process restores the core's physical shape and integrity without restacking the core. The CLR process is proven 100% effective in restoring the core;saving our customer the expense of a restacking and loss production time.
