Reconditioning Standards

Committed to the Highest Reconditioning Standards in the Industry

The long-running joke about the used/surplus equipment industry is that a fresh coat of paint equals reconditioning. For us, the fresh coat of paint is the last step of a thorough and stringent certification process we employ to ensure that every motor is in excellent working condition. At Romanoff Industries, our reconditioning standards are set in place to give you the confidence that a motor purchased from us will perform as you expected.

Our reconditioning certification consists of the following steps:

  • For AC motors
    • Megger test
