Powerful motor series boasts very low noise and vibration levels suitable for high-speed applications
WEG has extended its W60 motor series, now covering a power range of 500kW-16,000kW at frequencies of 50Hz or 60Hz. The three-phase induction motors are designed for the 2,300V-13,800V 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 line provides high performance and reliability even under the most difficult operating conditions. The series 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.
