Motor-Safe™ Repair: Saving energy while reducing downtime and extending the life of your electric motor are valuable benefits of our exclusive Motor-Safe™ Repair process. That’s why industrial and commercial customers have trusted Dreisilker to properly repair their critical motors for over 50 years. Stripping Without Damaging: Dreisilker uses our distinctive Motor-Safe Stripping process in which a technician carefully removes the original windings using a controlled “warming” method and hydraulic device. This technique pulls the softened windings from the stator without damaging the stator, avoiding the extreme, uneven temperatures of burnout ovens which distort the core and laminations.

Reliability Services: As the clock ticks away, the single most important value of reliability in your operation is to maximize uptime. When you can count on your machines running without interruption you can plan on productivity and profitability. But the cost of unplanned downtime can be measured in idle workers, missed deadlines and disappointed customers. These all translate into losses that impact your bottom line. So what is a predictive and preventive maintenance program really worth to your operation’s reliability?

Yaskawa Drives: Significant Cost Savings Using HVAC Drives For Buildings. Energy usage in a typical office building costs the owner between $1 and $3 per square foot. The air handling systems account for around 28% and the cooling systems for about 24% of the electricity consumed. That’s roughly half of your electric bill. You have the means of reducing air handling and cooling energy costs by 20%. For a 100,000 sq. ft. building, total savings can range from $10,000 to $30,000 every year. The key to savings on this scale is the judicious use of variable frequency drives (VFD). Dreisilker is an authorized distributor of Yaskawa VFDs with the expertise to fit the right system to your application.
