A global major in the power distribution, automation and control sectors, WEG products are employed worldwide for driving pumps, compressors and fans amongst many other applications. WEG products help industry to achieve production efficiencies, with or without variable speed operation, by offering the most energy efficient range of electric motors and drives available today.
WEG has been supplying equipment for hazardous area applications across all industry sectors for many years. Amongst the products utilised are the latest generation of transformers, low voltage control gear, generators, inverter drive systems, soft starters, low voltage and high voltage motors, ATEX- compliant explosion proof motors, smoke extraction motors, MCC’s (motor control centres) and full turnkey systems.
The W22X range of ATEX – compliant motors are amongst the most energy efficient currently available and although not yet required by European legislation, the W22X range has been designed to meet IEC efficiency ratings with motors available to IE2, IE3 and IE4 standards. This range is available for frame sizes up to 500 with output ratings up to 1400kW low voltage, for zones with presence of potentially explosive atmospheres of either gases/vapours or dusts/fibres.
WEG also manufactures a range of Medium and High Voltage hazardous area motors up to 13,800v in versions Ex d, Ex nA, Ex e and Ex p with output ratings available up to 50,000kW. These machines have been used across all industry sectors including Oil & Gas, Mining and Chemical.
WEG continues to consolidate its reputation for supplying tailor made solutions for the oil and gas market recently designing and supplying 4 water-cooled induction motors 5600 kW, 2 pole 13.8kV to work with Flowserve’s BB5 API centrifugal pumps. The electric motor and pump sets comprised of a water injection pumping system for an FPSO. The system injects seawater to increase the oilfield pressure thereby boosting production of oil and gas in the deepwater blocks of the Santos Basin in Brazil.
