Transport and Handling of Engines

It is important to note that if the electric motors are individually packed, they should never be lifted by the axle or its packaging, but with the appropriate devices and lifting eyebolts, if they exist.

The devices called lifting eyebolts are designed in such a way that they can support only the weight of the motor, which is specified on the nameplate. The use of hoisting eyes is not recommended to perform the suspension of the engine along with other equipment, such as bases, pulleys, fans, pumps and reducers, among others.

In case the eye bolts are compromised, as for example with possible cracks or deformations, they should never be put into use. It is of the utmost importance that, in addition to all the safety measures that must be taken, all conditions must be checked before using them.  Boston Gear 9F 1-3/4

Lifting eyes in components such as forced ventilation lids and kits or other devices should only be used to independently lift the same components and never to the complete engine. The motors that are supplied on pallets need to be suspended in the correct way, ie by the base of the pallet. Under no circumstances should the packaging be turned.
