NEW TEST CENTER

United Industrial has just taken delivery of and installed our Brand New 1000KVA Electric Motor Test Center. This State-Of-The-Art Test Center by allows us to test up to 1000 horsepower AC and DC fully loaded and up to 5000 horsepower AC and DC with no load. Unlike any of our competition, this Test Center not only collects all of the running data of the electric motor that it is testing, but also has patented Electric Motor Efficiency Software which allows us to gain the electric motor efficiency of the motor being tested assuring our customers that their motor has been not only wound properly, but that no damage was done to their motor in the process.  To learn more about this revolutionary piece of equipment call us at 724-746-4700
