Large AC motors

ABB’s large AXW AC motors offer power-dense, water cooled design for hazardous locations.
ABB unveiled its AXW 5000 and large AC 5800 motors, which deliver an average of 40 percent more power over conventional totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) motors, the company says. According to ABB, the motors include higher power densities, smaller footprint, noise reduction, constant cooling and heat reduction. For harsh, contaminate filled environments, the AXW is designed for continuous operation, due to the consistent cooling of the water jacket surrounding the motor. The main terminal box and auxiliary box can be mounted in several positions and the motor’s rigid frame design increases stability to meet vibration limit specifications. AXW motors mirror ABB’s AXR family of motors and are available with up to an IP56 rating.
