MPS Auto Degauss
High residual magnetic fields in rotating machine components is responsible for creating damaging shaft voltages and currents. The cause of the magnetic fields can be traced to magnetic chucks and couplings, magnetic particle inspections, magnetic probes and mounts, welding and other sources of electrical currents such as static currents or lightning. Demagnetizing is a necessary preventive maintenance procedure for rotating machinery to remove unwanted magnetism and reduce the risk of shaft currents being generated from high residual magnetic fields. MPS GaussoMeter
A reliable gauss meter, like the MPS Gaussometer, should be used routinely to take measurements on rotating machinery parts at operational shutdowns. Once the areas of high residual magnetism are identified, effective demagnetizing can be done with the automatic "downcycling" of the Auto Degauss.
