What's that Burning Smell?
If you are running machinery, you will be asked this sooner or later. Machines produce heat. And heat produces burning smells. It's as simple as that! I am sure many of us can sense that something is not right when we smell burning. After all burning means overheating. Machines are not meant to overheat. But sometimes they do.
How to tackle this?
Is it from the electrical source, or the mechanical source? Is there an overload in the electrical circuits? Is there a loose electrical connection somewhere? How about mechanical? Are the moving parts lubricated well? Does the lubrication oil take the heat away?
Questions…and more questions… But that is the way to troubleshoot. The more questions you ask, the better you are at arriving at the solution. You look at the problem from all angles.
