Oil leak causes and prevention in large electric motors

Abstract: Oil leaks are a common maintenance problem in large electric motors that can cause down time and even complete failure The oil can migrate either to the inside of the machine or to the outside environment This oil migration can be contributed to many factors but one major cause is due to the differential pressure between the oil sump cavity and the outside environment
