Trickle Treat (Random Wound - 143-449 frames) In this process a 60 HZ current is passed through the winding. This “pumps” the varnish into the windings resulting in better penetration into the stator slots and an increase in varnish build. Applying a controlled current to the windings produces optimal varnish curing. This cures the windings from the inside-out, rather than oven baking. Vacuum Pressure Impregnation (500 frames) This process completely seals the windings against moisture and harsh environments. It provides greater mechanical strength; that lowers the vibration level. Machine lasts longer and requires less maintenance.

WINDING TREATMENT Various winding treatment options and protective coatings are available to provide additional protection in special or extreme application and environmental conditions. Custom Polyseal ® Motors (Frames 444-5013) These motors are available with vacuum pressure impregnated windings which have been taped to hold additional varnish and to increase their mechanical strength. Custom Polyseal ® motors meet NEMA MG-1, Part 1 and are capable of an underwater submergence test which includes a hi-pot and megger test.
