WEG extends the W60 motor series

WEG has extended its W60 motor series, which now covers a power range of 500-16 000 kW at frequencies of 50 or 60 Hz. The three-phase induction motors are designed for the 2300-13 800 V voltage range and are available with frame sizes from IEC 450 to IEC 1000 (NEMA 7000 to 1600). Designed for industrial applications such as compressors, pumps and fans, the W60 line provides high performance and reliability even under the most difficult operating conditions. The W60 is used mainly in the oil and gas sector, in mining, for electrical generation in power plants, in cement production, as well as in water and waste water applications.

Due to its optimised design, the W60 series motors are not only more compact, but also lighter than their predecessors. The compact dimensions offer a significant advantage: the W60 motors take up to 50 % less installation space than comparable motors. The rugged design with high-quality housing and end shield are made of grey cast iron up to the IEC 560 standard. Sizes above IEC 560 feature a steel housing. A specially designed motor shaft prevents critical flexural vibrations at rated speeds – as well as below the rated speed in the case of two-pole motors – and ensures particularly low vibration levels. As a result, the W60 motors are also suitable for applications with frequency converters or heavy vibration loads. Thanks to the modular design, users can customise the motor to suit their specific application by means of optional expansion components such as differential pressure switches (air-cooled), leak detector (water-cooled), automatic lubrication system (anti-friction bearings) or rotary encoder.
