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"
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
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)
Best quality bearings (SKF, NSK)
Enlarged grease cavities and double strength bearings retainer caps
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
Class H Resin for all motors
Resin continuous flow (trickle) on all windings-364T and up
Class F (155ºC) insulation system tropicalized windings
All hardware components are galvanized
DEGREE OF PROTECTION TEFC (IP55):
IP55 (severe duty) (water projected by a nozzle against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect)
V-ring seals (prevents water and dust entering the motor around the shaft)
Tachonite labyrinth seals on TEFC (also available)
Drain plugs (to remove excess water that results from condensation) Gasketed conduit box
1.25 on NEMA TEFC motors 1 HP to 100 HP and 1.15 on 125 HP and up
Internal/external parts painted with anti-corrosive alkidic resin base paint
F1 and F2 mounting (mechanically reversible)
Horizontal or vertical mount - circlips on opposite drive end - frames 324T and up
Class I, Division II, Group C and D listed on nameplate designed for intermittent hazardous environments (except explosion proof)
Rotating parts dynamically balanced according to IEC 34.14 (more stringent than NEMA standards)
Wye delta starting to reduce inrush current standard for frames 254T and above in most lines
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)
