Over 100 Accredited Locations Assuring Efficiency and Reliability of Repaired Motors 

ST. LOUIS

The Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA) Accreditation Program provides assurance to electric motor owners that repairs performed at accredited facilities conform to industry standards and maintain the reliability and efficiency of the repaired motor. There currently are 105 locations worldwide that have been approved as EASA Accredited Service Centers.

“Owners of electric motors that need to be repaired have responded favorably to EASA’s Accreditation Program,” noted Linda Raynes, EASA President and CEO. “The intent of this groundbreaking accreditation program is to evaluate service centers for evidence of compliance to assure that they are using prescribed good practices to maintain motor efficiency and reliability during electrical and mechanical repairs of electric motors. “

The repair standards are contained in the American National Standards Institute approved ANSI/EASA-AR100: Recommended Practice for the Repair of Rotating Electrical Equipment. These criteria address the initial condition assessment of the failed motor and the repair of the motor’s mechanical components such as shafts, bearings, housing and cooling system. Further, the program addresses repair of the motor’s electrical elements including winding and insulation. Other criteria include balancing and testing of the repaired motor, required equipment used in the repair, instrument calibration, training of repair personnel, and documentation of findings and work performed. An independent third-party audit of a motor repair service provider’s practices assures compliance with these standards.

Participation in the accreditation program is voluntary and not restricted to EASA members. Accredited service providers will affix a serially-numbered “EASA Accredited Repair” label to repaired motors. These accredited service providers also are permitted to display an “EASA Accredited” logo in their literature and are listed on the EASA website.

Further information about the program can be found at www.easa.com/accreditation.

EASA is an international trade organization consisting of more than 1,800 electromechanical sales and service firms in nearly 70 countries. EASA provides engineering support, education and a variety of technical, management and sales/marketing programs related to sales, service and maintenance of motors, pumps, generators and other electromechanical equipment.
