Three Phase Induction Motors Medium and High Voltage

In conjunction with a world renown consultant company, WEG developed its three phase induction motors which allow easy maintenance and high performance level. Divided in two different lines, M Line and H Line, the WEG three phase induction motors became the best solution for those applications requiring such motors. Due to its mechanical design flexibility, M Line (Master) motors can be applied on a wide variety of applications with different operational requirements. In addition the M Line can be easily modified to match existing motors. H Line (High Performance) motors have been designed in such a way to withstand the most demanding applications and are regarded as both a reliable and low maintenance cost solution under such conditions.

With the application of modern software’s which were developed in conjunction with Universities of Europe, USA and Brazil ensuring high design accuracy, WEG provides superior performance from these machines. Optimized design, quality of materials used, associated with manufacturing process duly controlled on all production phases make these motors suitable for several market segment applications including mining, sanitation, cooling systems, cement, oil and gas, steel plants, pulp and paper and others. In order to comply with highly demanding world markets, WEG has its Quality System certified by Bureau Veritas Quality Institute in accordance with ISO 9001 requirements. As well as ISO 14001 environment certification, all WEG medium and high voltage motors are also certified by internationally recognized certifying institutions such as CSA (Canada) and PTB (Germany).

M Line - Master

Output ratings up to 50,000kW (70,000HP) Voltages ranging from 220 to 13,800V Speed from 3600 to 300rpm

M Line motors are manufactured in different configurations in reference to cooling methods and degree of protection. As a result, a motor configuration can be defined in such a way to better meet operating and environment conditions. Motor supplied in frame sizes IEC 280 to 450 (NEMA 4400 to 8000) are manufactured in cast iron frames. Those motors manufactured in frame sizes IEC 500 (NEMA 8800) and larger have their frames built in welded steel plates. Main advantages in using WEG M Line motors include:

- High efficiency

- Degree of Protection IP23 (WP-I), IP(W)24 (WP-II) or IP(W)55 / IP(W)56 / IP(W)65

- Reduced noise level

- Low and easy maintenance

- Can be built to meet API 541 standards

- Squirrel cage rotor Slip ring (wound rotor)

- Bearings Oil lubricated sleeve bearings Grease or oil lubricated ball or roller bearings

Applications

Squirrel Cage Motors

Due to their design versatility and excellent operating conditions, H and M Line motors are used on a wide variety of applications in the industry. Among other equipment, they are used to drive machines and equipment that require either variable or constant torque applications such as fans, pumps, grinders, conveyor belts, compressors, laminating machines, mixers and others.

Slip Ring Motors Slip ring motors are usually applied on high inertia loads or on high resistant starting torque loads. They are also required when there is starting current limitations on the power supply system. The most common loads driven by these motors are: ball mills, crushers, fans, exhausters, shredders and grinders for cement and mining industries, steel plants, among others. These M Line slip ring motors can be supplied with motorized brush-holder system or fixed brush-holder system, as required by the load and operating conditions. Slip ring motors fitted with motorized brush-holder system offer important advantages in terms of maintenance once they allow the brushes to be in contact with rings only during motor starting. Hence, avoiding brushes and slip rings wear.

Vertical Shaft Motors

WEG also offers medium and high voltage vertical shaft motors. These motors can be supplied with either grease lubricated ball or roller bearings, or angular contact bearings. Depending on the application, specially when subject to high inertia and high thrust loads, vertical motors can be supplied with oil lubricated roller bearings or sleeve bearings. H and M vertical shat motors are designed and manufactured to meet customer requirements for pump, crusher, mixer applications, among others.

Hazardous Area Motors

For explosive atmosphere applications, WEG manufactures motors with specific safety characteristics and suitable to operate in areas where flammable products are continually handled, processes and storaged so as to avoid personnel injury and damage to facilities. EEx e (increased safety) and EEx n (non sparking) motors are supplied in H and M Lines, while M Line also allows EEx p (pressurized) application. Explosive atmosphere motors comply with national and internationally recognized standards and are tested and certified by renown worldwide certifying institutions.

Constructive Characteristics

Frame

Manufactured either with welded steel plates or cast iron, the frame is motor structural component that accommodates, supports and protects the active magnetic part of the motor. Its rugged construction offers excellent mechanical strengthen to the motor along with low vibration levels.

Stator

Regarded as the static magnetic part of the motor, the stator consists of a steel laminated core. The coils forming the stator winding are fitted into the lamination core slots. The stator core is mounted directly on the motor frame.

Winding

The winding process supplied by WEG is specially designed and specified for the voltage and application they are intended for. Medium and high voltage motor coils are manufactured with rectangular copper wire, form-coiled and totally mica tape insulated. Conductive and semi-conductive tapes are also used to insulate the coils to ensure improved resistance to corona effect.

Winding

Rotor

Rotor

Regarded as the rotating component in the electric motor, the rotor consists basically of a shaft and a steel lamination core. On slip ring motors, either the squirrel cage or the rotor coils are fitted into the lamination core slots. The squirrel cage can be built with aluminum die cast or with copper or brass. The rotor is designed taking into consideration the required starting torque and motor operating conditions. Shaft is manufactured with several types of thermally treated steel such as AISI/SAE 1045, 1524 or 4140.

Insulation System

WEG MICATHERM insulation system is based on the “Vacuum Pressure Impregnation” (VPI) system, which was developed in conjunction with renown suppliers of insulating materials all over the world. Applying special epoxy resin, this system provides perfect to the motor protection process which has no emission of harmful gases to the environment. The VPI system for many years has been reliable and efficient on electric rotating machines for a wide variety of applications. The insulation system is applied on medium and high voltage machines manufactured with form coils ranging from 380 to 15,000V.

Balance

WEG counts on a series of equipment to perform balance up to 3600rpm. Computerized equipment allow accurate balance on all rotors. As a consequence, WEG motors present significantly reduced noise levels. The standard balance is provided in two planes. However, the company has the capability of providing three plane balancing whenever required or when requested by the customer.
