For ten years, a petrochemical customer was storing a critical spare motor onsite at their facility; during that time, the motor was never maintained to ensure proper operation. When the customer experienced motor failure on a critical application, they pulled the spare motor out of storage and discovered it wasn’t in good condition and wouldn’t start. Due to the critical application and the lost revenue from unplanned downtime, the motor was sent for a full recondition on overtime rush.
