Modular, water-cooled motors suit tight spots in demanding environments

Posted: Monday 15th January 2007

ABB has launched a new range of low voltage water-cooled motors in IEC frame sizes 400 and 450, extending the water-cooled offering up to 1100 kW. The new M3LP motors are more efficient and offer a wider range of optional variations than previous water-cooled models.

Water cooling dissipates more heat than air cooling, enabling water-cooled motors to provide more power than air-cooled versions in the same frame size. This makes them especially suitable for use in tight spaces and difficult environments. The efficiency of water cooling is also maintained at lower speeds, which is important in constant torque applications. These advantages make the motors especially suitable for water and waste water pumping applications.
