Modular high voltage motor replaces failed compressor drive
MENZEL modular high voltage motors provide maximum flexibility: Within a day after the order came in, motor specialist Menzel Elektromotoren recently delivered a 18 ton motor with 7500 kW rated power and a speed of 1490 rpm-¹ via special transport.
The modular high voltage motor replaced the failed compressor drive of a longtime customer and world market leader in the technical gases industry. Menzel Elektromotoren was able to react so swiftly, because the manufacturer is one of very few who are capable of providing such large-capacity motors from stock.
With decades of experience in the warehousing of high voltage motors up to 15 MW rated power, the special motor manufacturer has perfected the flexible, customized adaptation of motors to meet the customer's technical conditions as well.
High voltage motors in modular design
A modular high voltage motor from a series specially designed for larger pumps and compressors was readily available on short notice. The outlay for this job proved to be minimal. Thanks to the extremely compact design of these high voltage motors they fit in almost any application.
In addition, versatile welding steel housings with variable mounting options, high-quality Renk sleeve bearings, terminal boxes that are rotatable by 4 x 90 degrees as well as a choice of various cooling options give these motors maximum compatibility.
Modular electric motors for every voltage range
MENZEL modular electric motors with squirrel-cage rotors are manufactured for low-voltage as well as medium and high voltage applications. The basic structure of the modular electric motors is largely identical, allowing a variety of options for protection and mounting types. This allows the modular motors to be quickly adapted to any industrial application.
MENZEL modular electric motors are available with both squirrel-cage and slip-ring rotors and allow maximum flexibility.
