Frequently Asked Questions

Motors

 
Q. When Hill's rewinds an electric motor does the motor's efficiency change?
A. Hill's utilizes modern temperature controlled ovens for both burn off and baking of electric motors. In addition, we utilize "core loss" testing to further confirm that a rewound motor will meet factory specifications after a repair is completed. Reporting is available as needed.

Q. Does Hill's test run repaired motors?
A. Yes, we test run every repaired motor, check "no load" amps and lubricate as needed. If your motor operates on a VFD, let us know and we will also run the motor on one of our VFD test sets to insure trouble free operation when your motor returns from a completed quality repair.

Pumps

 
Q. Does Hill's Industrial stock parts for Murzan pumps?
A. Hill's has the largest inventory or Murzan parts in the Mid-Atlantic region. We ship anywhere. Feel free to contact is for a quote.

Q. Does Hill's pressure test repaired pumps for leaks in gaskets and seals?
A. Yes, Hill's pressure tests every pump (when mechanically possible) to make sure the fits are correct and to insure the seals and gaskets don't leak.

Q. Does Hill's Industrial install VFD's, soft starters, and other controls?
