Naval Motor Repair!
Astute Class Submarine – Dresser Root LP Blower Motor failure
Mawdsleys BER recently took receipt of subject motor that had failed due to operational issues on a compressor on a Astute Class submarine. Failure of the compressor had a detrimental effect on the Mawdsley’s (OEM) motor causing it also to fail.
The local repair company engaged to repair the motor were unable to do so. So Mawdsleys BER were called upon to deliver the repair in a defined timescale to enable the boat to go back to sea.
Initial findings determined that the outer rotor cage had failed and associated damage to the rotor bars. This had also resulted in the generation of hot molten metal that had penetrated the windings.
Mawdsleys BER were able to rewind the motor, replace the damaged rotor bars and manufacture a new outer rotor cage in house to support the repair and deliver the repaired motor back to the customer on time to allow the boat to be set back at sea.
