Wolters Motors. Electric pump motors and close-coupled pump motors are designed to meet the specific requirements of centrifugal pumps where the pump impeller is mounted directly on the motor shaft.

Wolters Motors

Shaft types include JM, JP, and West Coast styles. These electric pump motors are available in both EPAct and NEMA Premium efficiencies. Vertical Hollow Shaft motors are designed for use on turbine, mix flow, and propeller pumps. They feature a P-Base style mount where the line shaft goes up through the motor and out the top where it is secured. Vertical Hollow Shaft Motors are available in Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled and Weatherproof I enclosures with normal, high, and extra-high thrust capabilities. Vertical Solid Shaft motors feature a P-base mount for vertical mounting on in-line pump applications. Some of the most popular brands carried by Wolters Motors & Drives include: ABB/Baldor. Explosion Proof Motors. To be classified as explosion proof, the motors must be manufactured to the requirements of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and the National Electrical Code (NEC) in class, group, and temperature code restrictions.

Explosion Proof Motors

Explosion proof motors are designed for use in hazardous environments having certain explosive gases or materials present, like those found in the chemical, coal mining, textile, and petrochemical industries. It is important to select an explosion proof motor that is approved for use in the specific class and group that defines the hazardous environment the motor will run in. Understanding What Can Cause an Explosion Before investing in an explosion proof motor from Wolters Motors & Drives, it’s important to understand what can cause an explosion in a motor in the first place. There are two common scenarios that can lead to such an incident, they are: Aegis Bearing Protection Ring.

With the use of AC and DC motors, variable frequency drives often induce damaging electrical voltages on the motor shaft.

Aegis Bearing Protection Ring

Bearing lubricant can only do so much to prevent harm, and fluting damage, fusion craters, and severe pitting can result. These lead to bearing failure, but motors with AEGIS® rings installed allow , you to avoid this frustration. An AC or DC motor with an AEGIS® bearing protection ring will work safely by diverting the damaging shaft voltages and bearing currents to the ground, in turn extending the lifetime of your motor.

Why Choose AEGIS® Bearing Protection Rings & Motors Over Competitors? When selecting the best bearing protection rings on the market, technicians would be hard-pressed to find a better manufacturer than AEGIS®. The unique technology from AEGIS® protects bearings by combining nanogap technology to help shield them from electric charges that frequently cause frosting, fluting, and pitting damage.

Bearing fluting is one of the leading causes of motor failure and serious issues with variable frequency drives.

What is Electric Motor Fluting & How is it Caused?

However, unless you’re a machine component expert like the professionals from Wolters Motors & Drives, you might not entirely understand what bearing fluting is with your electric motors and why it should be avoided at all costs. Electric Motor Fluting Here you’ll learn all of the information you need about bearing fluting and why it’s important to fix the issue as soon as possible once it occurs. How Bearing Fluting is Caused in Variable Frequency Drives The issue of bearing fluting is somewhat complex and involves various factors in terms of your variable frequency drive. However, it’s this fast type of switching back and forth that creates an undue strain on the variable frequency drive’s motor shaft, forcing the need for insulated bearings.

Wolters Motors & Drives

Tightly regulated, these operations are held to far higher standards of cleanliness and sanitation. This is entirely reasonable, given the dangers of food contamination, but it creates a significant challenge for those designing and maintaining such facilities – how do you maintain industrial processes when the engines involved must be regularly washed, sanitized, and even subjected to caustic chemicals? The solution comes from washdown motors. How Washdown Motors Improve Food and Beverage Production Washdown motors are specifically designed to withstand high-pressure water cleaning, caustic decontamination agents, and potentially even complete water submersion – without breaking down or having electrical issues. These motors are a necessity in any sort of food or beverage processing plant. Baldor Large AC Motors. Gear Motor Products & Gear Reducers. Compressor Duty Motors.
