Motor and Drive System
By Design Engineering StaffMotion Control Machine Building
Baldor Reliance RPM AC motor and drive designed for cooling towers.
Baldor Electric Company introduced an adjustable speed direct drive cooling tower system that combines the company’s Baldor Reliance RPM AC motor with an adjustable speed drive that replaces the right-angle gearbox and jack shaft installation found in many conventional industrial process cooling towers. The fan couples to the motor and is controlled by the ABB ACS880 cooling tower drive. This drive offers specific cooling tower parameters and provides a “quick start assistant” specifically for cooling tower applications.
