IP67 motors – watertight
For many years, watertight MENZEL IP67 motors have proven to be a reliable drive solution in industrial plants and pump stations around the world.
MENZEL IP67 motors are typically found in water pump stations (for example in Egypt), cooling towers, or other industrial facilities – in particular those in which hazardous quantities of water are processed, which could easily lead to damage to the motor. Motors in protection class IP67 are best suited to implementation in flood prone areas.
Our IP67 motors are fitted with watertight, enclosed motor housing and terminal boxes. Long recesses, low tolerances and the precise installation of absolutely perfect components enables the motors to be flooded at a standstill, without water entering into them. When the water subsides, they can be restarted straight away.
All electric motors produced by MENZEL are subject to routine acceptance tests in the on-site test area at our site in Berlin.

The right protection for your motor – Characteristics
For users, it is difficult to decide on the right degree of protection for a particular industrial application. As manufacturers of electric motors for industrial applications, we specialize in providing advice on this, and offering the optimum drive solution for your requirements.
The protection class of the motor must always correspond to the actual on-site requirements, as opposed to the typical production standards of the manufacturer. The calculation and design of our MENZEL motors take into account all the environmental conditions at the site of installation. A thorough, careful assessment of these environmental conditions ultimately has a significant impact on how many years your motors will run smoothly and meet your production requirements.
The most common motor protection class for industrial motors is IP55. Motors in this protection class are fully protected against contact with, and damage caused by, dust deposits, as well as splash water from all sides.
Because as specialists in special drive solutions we are frequently confronted with challenging specifications, we also offer motors with protection classes which go beyond the industrial standard (IP55). MENZEL three-phase low, medium and high voltage motors are also available, for example, in the following increased motor protection classes.
Typical areas of application of IP67 motors
IP 67 motors are typically used in industrial areas where there are extreme operating conditions which are influenced by dust, fiber, dirt and water.
- Pump drive
- Drives in beverage and filling plants
- Top deck installation on ships
- Port and harbor facilities
- Wastewater treatment plants
- Cooling systems
