Silver Plated Rings vs. Solid Coin Silver Rings

Detailing a test conducted by United Equipment Accessories, Inc. on their silver plated rings, this paper describes how UEA's silver plated rings when used with silver graphite brushes, perform with similar resistance to solid coin silver rings with a significant potential savings for the customer. It highlights the calculation method of resistance in the test, compares the functioning period between silver plate rings and solid coin silver rings, and states that UEA silver brush or silver ring configurations have a significantly low resistance of about 5 milliohms per circuit. With the plated rings tested well over 5.5 million revolutions, the paper concludes that specific application can dictate whether it is necessary to use solid silver or plated rings. Graphs illustrating the test results of resistance between silver plated rings in oscillations and solid coin silver rings in revolutions are also included.
