Since 1953, Brandon and Clark has been a member of EASA, Electrical Apparatus Service Association. They are also an EASA Authorized Service Center, and have recently achieved the prestigious status of being an EASA Accredited Service Center by completing all the requirements set forth by EASA by demonstrating that they follow the prescribed good practices to consistently deliver quality electromechanical repairs that maintain or improve a motor’s efficiency and reliability.

EASA ACCREDITATION PROGRAM

ASSURING THE EFFICIENCY AND RELIABILITY OF REPAIRED ELECTRIC MOTORS

Overview

It has been proven that electric motor efficiency can be maintained by following defined good practice repair and rewind procedures. As a result, the Electrical Apparatus Service Association, Inc. (EASA) developed an international accreditation program for service centers that is based on the sources of these good practices, namely ANSI/EASA AR100: Recommended Practice for the Repair of Rotating Electrical Apparatus and the “Good Practice Guide” from the 2003 study The Effect of Repair/Rewinding on Motor Efficiency by EASA and the Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT).

This groundbreaking accreditation program uses EASA-approved independent, third-party auditors to evaluate service centers and assure they are following prescribed good practice electrical and mechanical repair procedures that maintain motor efficiency and reliability.

Scope

The EASA Accreditation Program covers three phase, squirrel-cage induction motors. Its scope includes both mechanical repairs and electrical rewinding.

Highlights

The EASA Accreditation Program for motor repair:

  • Assures usage of prescribed good practices that help maintain motor efficiency and reliability
  • Covers 23 categories and more than 70 criteria (see the “Audit Checklist with Explanations” at www.easa.com/accreditation)
  • Requires external audits by EASA-approved independent, third-party auditors
  • Assures continuing compliance with proven good practices through mandatory internal self audits
