“Following reliability problems with traction motors, Houghton International were approached and asked to apply their knowledge and experience to fully evaluate the condition of some sample motors.

The professional team at Houghton International assisted in the development of a comprehensive test regime which was augmented with a thorough physical examination of the component parts, drawing on the expertise of their suppliers and industry partners where appropriate. All test results were interpreted and presented in a clear and concise manner that ensured they were understood.

The sound conclusions drawn from this investigation will be used to improve the future maintenance strategy for all Porterbrook traction motors of this type and Houghton International are a key partner in this on-going development work.”
