Indar deliver largest submersible motor pump sets ever

Monday, October 16th, 2017 von admin

Facing the worst drought on record in the Colorado River Basin, as lake levels continue to fall, the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) is building a low lake level pumping station to ensure Las Vegas and Southern Nevada maintains access to its primary water supplies in Lake Mead. Lake Mead water levels have dropped more than 40 m (131 feet) since the drought began in 2000. The new pumping station will allow SNWA to pump water from Lake Mead from an elevation as low as 267 m (875 feet) above sea level into the water treatment facilities and further on to provide water to the city of Las Vegas and neighbor community area.

Siemens: Motors for high thrust pump applications in harsh environments

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016 von admin

Siemens hat sein umfangreiches Portfolio von Simotics-Niederspannungsmotoren nach Nema um vertikale Vollwellenmotoren (VSS) – Reihe LP100 – in der Effizienzklasse Nema Premium erweitert. Expanding its extensive range of Simotics low-voltage Nema motors, Siemens adds in-line, vertical solid shaft (VSS) motors to its portfolio – the LP100 series – in the Nema Premium efficiency class.

Expanding its extensive range of Simotics low-voltage Nema motors, Siemens adds in-line, vertical solid shaft (VSS) motors to its portfolio – the LP100 series – in the Nema Premium efficiency class. They have been specifically designed to address hight thrust pump applications and now have an extra high thrust capability allowing them to be teamed up with many pump types. The motors comply with the new Nema Premium efficiency class, the highest efficiency class required today for Nema low-voltage induction motors in the US. A range of special options is available for the series so that these motors comply with or exceed the most stringent industrial standards and can be used to address a wide range of applications.

Is your electric motor trying to tell you something?

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014 von admin

PR2351_50604Plant and maintenance engineers often seem to have an intuitive nose for trouble, so are able to predict pending problems with machinery and take pre-emptive action to prevent them. It is not the result of magical powers, rather of long experience with plant and machinery. Bill Bertram of motor maker Marathon Electric explains how different motor sounds can be interpretedÖ: “If you walk around a piece of plant that is running, you will hear it making a noise. If you listen carefully you will be able to pick out individual elements within the overall sound. For instance, you may be able to hear a fan whirring, a pump thumping and a conveyor rumbling.”
