Toshiba medium voltage motor targets harsh petrochemical applications

Toshiba International Corporation (TIC) has introduced the new Petrochem SD+ medium voltage motor for tough material processing applications.

The totally enclosed and fan cooled motor package features rugged construction and durable design, and it is built with certain IEEE Std. 841™-2009 specifications.

The SD+ motor is aimed at the oil and gas, mining and mineral, and pulp and paper industries.

“The new motor is best suited for applications including compressors, pumps, fans, and conveyors,” said John Rama, business director for the TIC Motors and Drives division.

“The low temperature and low vibration design provides additional durability to withstand these harsh environments, decreasing maintenance requirements and chances of failures while ultimately increasing the motor lifespan.”

Available in 2300, 3300, 4000, or 6600V, the motor features severe duty IP55 protection for the motor and terminal boxes, in addition to an insulation system capable of withstanding an immersion test in accordance with NEMA MG 1.

For further protection from environmental conditions, the motor’s windings, rust-inhibitive paint system on motor and rotor/shaft assembly, and corrosion-resistant hardware have undergone tropicalisation treatment.
