Blower motor oil
You oil your car so that it works smoothly, why wouldn’t you do the same with your blower motor? A small drop of blower motor oil can improve draft and protects your most critical component.
Blower Motor Oil
Did you know that a few drops of oil can lengthen the life of your blower motor?
Our technicians usually carry about fifteen to twenty bottles of this oil when they are out on the road during calibration season. Oiling your blower motor is singlehandedly the best, most optimized solution to getting the maximum performance out of your NCAT ignition oven.
Why it’s necessary
When the NCAT ignition oven was being created, Barnstead International needed a fan that could work with the voltage of the unit (240v) and pull enough exhaust to create ideal draft conditions.
They had a fan that could perform both functions, but it had a major drawback. The blower motor that they selected was not rated for the temperatures that the NCAT’s exhausted at.
Because of this, the fans were prone to failure. Thus there needed to be a stop-gap in place to protect the motors. That stopgap was blower motor oil.
How to use:
The easiest (and only) way to apply blower motor oil is while it’s still connected to the furnace.
There are two holes located on the side of the blower:
In each of these holes apply about 4-5 drops of oil and then immediately run your unit.
**** CAUTION ****
If you do not run your motor after applying the oil, your blower motor can and will seize up and become inoperable!
How often should I use it?
If your NCAT runs daily, then you should apply blower motor oil 2-3 times a season. This will lubricate the bearings enough to keep up with the heavy demand.
