The municipal water sector covers the entire public water supply system—including water and wastewater treatment plants, water and wastewater storage facilities, and distribution pipelines—of a city or town. Its operations include the distribution of clean water to industrial, commercial, institutional, and residential locations and the processing of wastewater back at treatment facilities. Electric generators and motors play an important role in these operations, particularly in the heating and cooling of water and wastewater. That’s why it is essential to keep them properly maintained and repaired. Otherwise, they may break down unexpectedly, which can lead to expensive and inconvenient water supply outages.
At Renown Electric, we offer electric generator and motor repair, rebuild, and replacement services to help customers in various industries, including the municipal water sector, to help keep their critical systems running effectively and efficiently. Armed with extensive experience and state-of-the-art facilities, we have the knowledge, skills, and tools needed to support virtually any electric generator or motor management need.
Importance of Generator and Motor Maintenance and Repair for the Municipal Water Sector
In the United States, water and wastewater treatment facilities account for approximately 3% of the nation’s electricity usage. Given the importance of generators and motors in the operations of these facilities, improvements to how they are managed can lead to a significant reduction in energy consumption. Estimates from the US Department of Energy indicate an average reduction of 18% can be attained by paying greater attention to motor system management.
Some of the activities involved with motor system management include:
- Developing procedures to inventory and categorize motors
- Establishing guidelines to ensure quality repairs
- Creating and implementing motor maintenance plans
In addition to helping reduce the energy consumption of water and wastewater treatment facilities, these practices also help ensure electric generators and motors continue to run effectively and efficiently. This is vital since the machines are essential to pumping operations, which are crucial to the water and wastewater treatment processes. Any equipment inefficiency or ineffectiveness can negatively affect the results of the processes.
