AEGIS® Bearing Protection - Why Shaft Grounding?

 

Best Practices

  • Lower Bearing: Install one AEGIS® SGR Bearing Protection Ring.
  • AEGIS® SGR can be installed internally on the back of the bearing cap.
  • Colloidal Silver Shaft Coating PN CS015 is required for this type of application.

Product recommendation: AEGIS® SGR

NOTE:
For external installation, the AEGIS® Ring must run on the motor or pump shaft at the lower bearing. Ring must not be mounted around the steady bushing.

Upper bearing may be isolated with insulated bearing carrier for added protection.

  • Upper Bearing: Bearing carrier must be isolated or insulated ceramic or hybrid ceramic bearing installed.
  • Bottom Bearing: Install one AEGIS® Bearing Protection Ring.
  • AEGIS® Ring can be installed internally on the back of the bearing cap.
