Rototech has upgraded its range of Euro series Flameproof motors which are now available in 240 Volt single phase and three phase intermittent, brake, two speed and forced cooled inverter duty models.
Euro series Flameproof motors are specifically designed to operate in hazardous atmospheres and hostile environments.
The Rototech Euro Series Flameproof motors are fit to be used in Area Class C – Zone 1 and Zone 2.
The 3 phase range covers outputs from 0.035kW up to 45.0 kW (two, four, six and eight pole configurations) while the single phase range covers outputs from 0.06kW up to 5.5kW, (two, four and six pole configurations).
Three phase flameproof motor enclosure protection is rated at IP66 GD, while single phase flameproof motors are available in both IP55 G and IP66 GD. Tropicalised varnishing ensures motors resist corrosion and fungal attack.
Other principal flameproof motor characteristics include: cast iron frames and shields, non sparking synthetic cooling fan on motors up to 132 frame (cast iron fans on larger frame sizes), epoxy paint and class F insulation.
Flameproof motors can be supplied with thermistors throughout the range. Anti-condensate heaters (240V) are standard on frame 225 and above.
