  DELBA Electrical commissions new Pyrolitic Kiln for Safe and
Efficient removal of Electric Motor Windings

Leading South African Electric Motor Repair Company, DELBA Electrical has just completed commissioning of a new Pyrolitic Kiln at its main facility in Nuffield, Springs.

This R1.5m investment represents the company’s commitment to Quality of Repair and is the first of its kind in the country. The Kiln is used during the burn-off process to facilitate the safe removal of electric motor windings by elimination of resins through PLC controlled combustion in the treatment chamber at 380°C and includes a full water-spray quenching system in the event of spontaneous combustion.

This critical part of the motor repair process ensures that stator core iron-losses are not compromised by exceeding critical core temperatures during the burn-off process and ensures that original motor design performance and efficiency levels remain unaffected.

The removal of organic substances into the air is achieved by the use of a post combustion chamber operating at an automatically regulated temperature of 750-850°C in order to eliminate pollution and DELBA Electrical has recognized its responsibility of ensuring monitored compliance with international emission control requirements. The effective dimensions of the Kiln = 3.0m (width) x 3.0m (height) x 4.0m (depth) and also features a self recovery energy system to reduce fuel consumption and the chart recording of all temperatures.
