I have a 2”x72” belt grinder with a Brook Crompton bf4n.75-2 motor.
It is connected to a Teco L510 VFD. Running here in the United States on 110v. My question is about turning up the RPMs sometimes when working on projects and hogging out material.
Is this doable? What would be the safest RPM without causing damage to the motor or bearings?
I know with my VFD I can up the frequency to do so and have seen many people do it. Just don’t want to do this if it is going to burn up my motor.
Normally 1800ish RPM is fine but every so often at the start of projects it would be nice to get the belt moving a bit more and removing material.
