1400 kW low-voltage squirrel cage motor for cement plant
For a large cement plant, we recently delivered a 1400kW low-voltage squirrel cage motor. The new MENZEL electric motor replaces a failed 690 V fan drive in a cement plant in Germany, which is one of the world's leading manufacturers of deep hole cement.
The low-voltage motor from MENZEL's modular series of MEBKSL squirrel-cage motors is designed for FI operation and, despite low voltage, has a rock solid coil winding and a converter-resistant insulation. The winding is thus able to cope with the highest mechanical stress in a cement plant. Like all our modular low-voltage-motors the motor features a weld-iron housing with integrated footplate. The housing design ensures a maximum in torsional stiffness and optimal cooling characteristics
Since the new squirrel cage low voltage motor should be placed on the existing foundation, the dimensions had to fit exactly. In addition, the weight of the new motor was not allowed to exceed the existing crane capacities at the site.
Low-voltage squirrel-cage motors individually to customer specifications
"For us as a manufacturer and supplier, these types of squirrel-cage motors manufactured individually according to customer specifications are typical day-to-day business," says Roland Gutzeit, Head of the Low-Voltage Drive Division at MENZEL Elektromotoren GmbH. "What sets us apart from our competitors is our fast and competent support".
For MENZEL, a project is much more than the mere production and delivery of a motor. We primarily see ourselves as a partner of our customers. We are available to advise you from the request to the commissioning. This is especially appreciated by our customers in the cement industry all over the world. After all, if a cement plant loses an electric motor, a suitable replacement must be able to fit the existing circumstances and be produced and customized very quickly. Here you can rely on MENZEL electric motors.
MENZEL low-voltage motors are available with squirrel cage and slip ring rotor. Our low-voltage squirrel-cage motors are typically used as fan drives in pumps or compressors. The main applications of our low-voltage slip-ring motors are mills, cranes, shredders, crushers, hoists, conveyor belts or any other application requiring a high standstill torque.
In our low-voltage motor catalogs you will find an overview of our standard series. Do not forget, however, that MENZEL specializes in the custom manufacturing and adaptation of electric motors. We are happy to receive your inquiries for special motor adaptions.
