Motors save energy in hazardous areas

Motors save energy in hazardous areas

Oil, gas and petrochemical industries can now enjoy the same energy benefits as general industry with the launch by Weg of Premium Efficiency EEx d/EEx de, and both Premium Efficiency and Top Premium Efficiency EEx nA hazardous area motors.


The Weg Premium Efficiency EEx d and EEx de motors meet all the requirements of IEC and CENELEC Standards, and the ATEX Directive 94/9/EC (Category Ex II 2 G EExd or EEx de II T4 Zone 1). They are designed to operate safety in category 2, Zone 1 environments where flammable gases or vapours gather in sufficient volumes to generate explosions.


Offering the same energy saving benefits in category 3 hazardous environments, Weg's Premium Efficiency and Top Premium Efficiency dual labelled EEx nA/DIP motors are classified as Zone 2, groups IIA, IIB and IIC, and Zone 22, DIP. This dual classification provides a major benefit for users, in that one motor will suffice in atmospheres containing both combustible gas and non-conductive combustible dust.


The motors are inverter rated to enable maximised energy saving from matched motor/drive combinations. This means they are highly efficient in dealing with the higher peak voltages and faster voltage rise times of the IGBTs used in the latest VSDs.
