Electro Static Technology’s Split uKIT is ideal for HVAC service contractors and plant maintenance departments. Designed to accommodate slingers, shaft shoulders, and other end bell protrusions, the kit comes with a split AEGIS ring, the halves of which are held together with a hinge. This hinge design allows the split AEGIS ring to be opened on one side, then closed and fastened together with built-in adhesive-backed aluminum tabs, providing rigidity to the assembled ring. AEGIS rings prevent electrical bearing damage, costly motor repairs/replacements, and downtime by safely channeling VFD-induced bearing currents to ground. Continuous circumferential rows of conductive microfibers are embedded securely in the ring’s FiberLock channel, completely surrounding the motor shaft and providing millions of discharge points for harmful shaft currents. This design creates the path of least resistance that effectively diverts these currents away from bearings to ground. The microfibers are specially engineered for conductivity and flexibility to minimize wear and prevent breakage.
