General Requirements
INDUCTION 1) When indoor storage is not possible, the motors must be covered with a tarpaulin. This cover should extend to the
MOTORS ground; however, it should not tightly wrap the motor. This will allow the captive air space to breathe, minimizing
AND formation of condensation.
SYNCHRONOUS 2) Whether indoors or out, the area of storage should be free from ambient vibration. Excessive vibration can cause
bearing damage. A unit which must be stored in areas with high ambient vibration, such as from heavy construction
MOTORS equipment or other sources, must have the shaft locked to prevent any movement.
3) Precaution should be taken to prevent rodents, snakes, birds, or other small animals from nesting inside the motors.
In areas where they are prevalent, precautions must be taken to prevent insects, such as mud dauber wasps, from

gaining access to the interior of the motor.


4) Inspect the rust preventive coating on all external machined surfaces, including shaft extensions. If necessary,
recoat the surfaces with a rust preventive material, such as Rust Veto No. 342 (manufactured by E.F. Houghton Co.)
or equivalent. The condition of the coating should be checked periodically and surfaces recoated as needed.
5) Grease lubricated cavities must be completely filled with lubricant during storage. Remove the drain plug and fill
cavity with grease until grease begins to purge from drain opening.
6) To prevent moisture accumulation, some form of heating must be utilized to prevent condensation. This heating
should maintain the winding temperature at a minimum of 5ºC above ambient. If space heaters are supplied, they
should be energized. If none are available, single phase or "trickle" heating may be utilized by energizing one phase
of motor's winding with a low voltage. A third option is to use an auxiliary heat source and keep the winding warm
by either convection or blowing warm air into the motor.
7) Motors above 75 hp are provided with space heaters and shall be energized to avoid the condensation of moisture.
Inspection shall be conducted for space heaters weekly or as determined by manufacture recommendations.
8) Exposed internal stator, rotor, and shaft surfaces shall be protected against moisture and corrosion by a suitable
protective coating during preservation.
9) Fan motors shall be run-tested for 30 minutes to verify normal operation every six month.
10) Electrical megger testing shall be conducted monthly.
11) For mechanical preservation instructions, refer to Table A-2006 (Rotating Equipment).
