IEEE841 Motors are a specific class of electric motors that adhere to the standards outlined by the IEEE (Electrical and Electronics Engineers). These standards are important for motors used in the petrochemical and refining industries. These industries have a higher standard when it comes to reliability, efficiency, and performance. Universal Rewind has a unique opportunity with the Brook Crompton brand of IEEE841 motors (while supplies last). These are premium motors that are nominally more than a general-purpose motor but will last significantly longer than your GP motor.
Motors with the IEEE841 rating are designed and constructed to withstand the harsh operating conditions that are often found in these industries.
Some key features of these motors are as follows:
- Efficiency: Typically adhere to NEMA Premium Efficiency standards. Higher efficiency = less energy consumption.
- Enclosure: These motors are TEFC (totally enclosed fan-cooled) and have an IP56 enclosure, protecting the motor from environmental contaminants.
- Materials: IEEE841 Motors are constructed out of materials that are resistant to corrosion and can withstand exposure to hazardous substances – hence why they are suitable to use in chemical/petrochemical plants.
- Bearings: These motors usually have sleeve bearings, which are more robust and can handle more mechanical stress.
- Cooling: Come equipped with a separate cooling fan to maintain a lower and more appropriate operating temperature, this enhances their reliability.
- Vibration: IEEE841 motors have lower vibration levels, this prevents damage to the connected machinery and thus adds to their longevity.
IEEE 841 motors are designed and constructed to meet the stringent requirements of the petrochemical and refining industries. Because they are known for their high efficiency, robust construction, and reliability, they are also suitable for use in challenging environments where motor performance is critical to industrial processes. Aggregate operations are an example of where these motors are commonly used, but not required.
