Increase Energy Efficiency with Baldor Super-E® Electric Motors

Industrial electric motors represent the single largest end use of electricity in the United States. The Department of Energy estimates that 25% of the electricity sold in the US is consumed by industrial electric motors. In addition, 64% of the energy used in industry is consumed by motorized equipment. These motors are used to power production processes and heating, cooling and ventilation systems.

Improvements to the efficiency of motorized equipment can therefore result in a significant impact to the overall profitability of manufacturing plants.

Baldor understands the impact of electric motor energy efficiency to the "bottom line." Since 1983, when they first introduced the premium efficient Super-E motor line, an industry first, Baldor has maintained the lead in providing the most energy efficient electric motors and drives in the industry.

E. B. Atmus carries a full line of Baldor Super E Motors. Let our Sales Staff help you improve your energy efficiency!

Energy saving chart

The Pie chart above shows the typical life cycle cost of a 100 Hp motor operating in continuous duty over a 20-year life. As you can see, the original purchase price is almost insignificant compared to what it will cost to power the motor during its useful life.

Timken Type E® Tapered Roller Bearing Housed Units

The Timken Company recently announced the introduction of a new line of Type E tapered roller bearing housed units that set a new performance standard for industrial bearings. The new housed units are ideal for rugged applications, such as in process and material-handling equipment. They feature enhanced-performance bearings, double lip seals, corrosion-resistant housings and locking collars - all of which provide advanced operating levels compared with current industry leading designs utilizing standard Timken bearings, including:

• 55 percent longer design life
• 10 times more sealing ability
• Superior corrosion resistance

Material handling equipment used in industrial processes such as pulp and paper, power generation, mining, cement, aggregate, mixing/vibrating, ovens/furnaces, water treatment and waste-water treatment are frequently subjected to harsh environments, with extreme temperature fluctuations, heavy debris and excessive vibrations that promote bearing failure and unscheduled downtime in machinery.

Timken has designed the new tapered roller bearing housed units to withstand the harshest conditions, adding a double lip seal design to significantly reduce contaminant ingress over competing products. Timken's new model also helps promote greater grease retention. It will be sold through the industrial distribution channel and to equipment manufacturers.

Electro-deposition coating, or e-coating, on both the housings and locking collars helps further protect exposed surfaces and provides better corrosion resistance than the powder coating used on competing designs.



For example, the tapered roller bearings used in Timken Type E pillow blocks have surface textures and optimized profiles that contribute to a 55 percent increase in life over industry-standard housed units equipped with standard Timken bearings.

The new line includes 2-bolt and 4-bolt pillow blocks, 4-bolt and piloted flange units and wide angle and top angle take up units.

Timken Type E tapered roller bearing housed units come in a wide range of sizes and configurations to meet demanding industrial applications.

Bearing Life Analysis

The Chart above shows an analytical analysis of the new, optimized Timken bearing compared to a standard Timken bearing (used widely by most Type E suppliers) and a new bearing from a leading industry competitor. Note: Life tests of Timken tapered roller bearings verified by Germanischer Lloyd.

President's Corner

E. B. Atmus is proud to help support The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for sick kids.

Off the beaten path in northeastern Connecticut is a dirt road framed by dense woods and accessed by a passageway through rough-hewn boulders reminiscent of a Wild West hideaway.

Here, children diagnosed with cancer, sickle cell anemia, HIV/AIDS, hemophilia and other serious & life-threatening conditions enjoy more than they or their parents ever thought possible.

Activities include archery, mini golf, swimming, boating, fishing, horseback riding, arts & crafts, sports, theater & camping; all are designed to include every child & ensure that no child will fail.

For more information, visit them on the web at Hole in the Wall Gang Camp.


 Hole in the Wall Gang camp

Founded by Paul Newman in 1988, and named for the outlaw hiding-place from his film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp has been serving seriously ill children with a remarkably empowering away experience for more than 20 years.

The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp provides year-round programming that, altogether, serves more than 15,000 children annually. Best of all - all of the Camp's services are free of charge, thanks to the generosity of many caring friends and supporters.  

 Enjoy the beautiful
New England Fall!
