In the harshest environments our motors will be the last ones standing
Mineral ore mining and processing requires the same high integrity equipment used in coal mining. As a consequence the same design philosophy is adopted without the need to resort to flameproof certification but weatherproofing is introduced to suit unprotected outdoor applications.
Our machines have a pedigree in potash mining and our experience in this sector has lead to specific designs to cope with heavy duty use in a salt laden environment. Security of rotor design is essential so we employ our Barlok rotor design which has eliminated rotor bar failures during normal use since its introduction.
Water cooled stator frames can be used where space limitations exist resulting in a very compact machine. Where water is not readily available we can adjust the aspect ratio of the stator design to give a small diameter long or large diameter short machine to fit unusual spaces. Your requirements are key and we design our machines to fit your specification exactly.
