WEG Electric Motor Quality Features - Extras That Really Count

FC 200 CAST IRON:
  • This is explosion proof quality cast iron (higher density), thus stronger with more efficiency and lower vibration levels

STATOR CASTING FRAME:
  • Uni-body construction - Greater strength and no "hot spots"

TERMINAL BOX:
  • Oversize cast iron terminal box on most lines fitted with O-ring rubber sealing gaskets and filled with resistant sponge-like material to seal the lead path through the frame and rotatable by 90º turns

SHAFT MATERIAL:
  • 4140 high tensile steel on frame 404T and up (IV, VI and VII pole)
  • 1045 carbon steel on frames 143T to 365T
  • 316 stainless steel on jet pump motors (TEFC and ODP)

BEARING:
  • Best quality bearings (SKF, NSK)
  • Enlarged grease cavities and double strength bearings retainer caps

GREASE:
  • All frames ESSO/EXXON POLYREX EM - blue color and is a polyurea based grease (achieved a lubrication life of more than 700 hours at 177ºC (350ºF)). Other special greases available upon request.

DESIGN TEMPERATURE RISE:
  • 80ºC (Class B) temperature rise

WINDING IMPREGNATION:
  • Class H Resin for all motors
  • Resin continuous flow (trickle) on all windings-364T and up

WINDING INSULATION:

STARTING:
  • Wye delta starting to reduce inrush current standard for frames 254T and above in most lines

TORQUES:
  • Locked rotor and breakdown torques that exceed design C for almost ALL ratings (NEMA design C requires significantly higher LRT and BDT than NEMA design B, the standard for most all other manufacturers)
