What is a premium efficiency process performance electric motor?

You may already be aware that we complement our wide range of in-house products with ABB electric motors. Today we’re asking what exactly an ABB premium efficiency process performance motor is and who it’s ideal for.

What is a premium efficiency process performance electric motor?

These motors are built to deliver the utmost energy efficiency and reliability, providing maximum value for their entire lifecycle. ABB have combined state-of-the-art design, the finest materials and cutting-edge production techniques to create a motor that offers exceptional performance in even the most demanding conditions.

What designs are premium efficiency process performance motors available in?

They are rated IE3 for efficiency which means that not only will they cut users’ energy bills, they also offer a way to reduce carbon footprint. There are two, four and six-pole motors available in frame sizes 80-355 (cast iron) and 80-250 (aluminium). Output ranges from 0.75 kW to 355 kW with voltage up to 690 V.

What makes these motors special?

Premium efficiency process performance motors offer low starting currents and a superior torque curve. They also produce less noise than lower-efficiency models. These motors require low maintenance and offer a longer lifecycle as a result of cooler running - because of this they have longer warranties than many other motors.

Who uses premium efficiency process performance motors?

Users tend to be OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and those operating industrial applications. Customers concerned about the EU MEPS (European Minimum Energy Performance Standard) regulations set to be implemented in 2015 can rest assured that the motors already meet those requirements.
