When an electric motor needs the output speed reduced and/or torque increased, gears are often used to do this. A speed reducer, also known as gear drives, gearboxes and transmission reducers, slow electrical currents in power transmission to protect against surges, and to make dangerous levels usable for normal applications.
IER Services (Industrial Electromechanical Repair Services) was founded in 2011 to fill a need for fast, effective, repair services of electromechanical devices of all types including AC and DC motors, pumps, variable frequency drives, and more.
A comprehensive preventive maintenance program is the key to extending the life of your motors and generators. Unscheduled stoppage of production or long repair shutdowns are intolerable in today’s plant operations. Profits fall from the downtime.

Shafts are a key component in most rotating equipment. When they are not working properly, it can cause huge problems and cost lots of money, not only in down times but increased energy bills.
They are used for axles, bolts, forged connecting rods, crankshafts, torsion bars, light gears, guide rods etc.
An air-operated pump is a positive-displacement reciprocating pump, also called a membrane pump, that is used for the general transfer of liquids. This type of pump is driven by a compressed gas from an outside source.
A Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) is a type of motor controller that drives an electric motor by varying the frequency and voltage supplied to the electric motor. A VFD is also called a variable speed drive, adjustable speed drive, adjustable frequency drive, AC drive, microdrive, and inverter.
Jet pumps, also known as ejector pumps are devices that are capable of handling and transporting all forms of motive fluid such as steam, gas, and other liquids.
Extend the Life of Your Pump
Most submersible pumps operate in rigorous conditions that can increase the chances of pump failure. To insure consistent operation that will last for several years, proper preventive maintenance is needed.
