TESTING AND APPLICATION OF HIGH EFFICIENCY VERSUS CONVENTIONAL MOTORS IN TIRE CORD RING TWISTING

Rising energy cost coupled with a tight supply situation dictated a program for reducing energy consumption at Uniroyal. One phase of this program compared the performance of motors of the new high efficiency design with those motors that were currently driving tire cord ring twisters. This paper discusses the investigation, results and decisions that followed. It gives a description of ring twisting equipment, description of the motor testing program and equipment used, results of the testing program, selection of new motors, and planned future studies.
