6. Water Cooled Motors

Water cooling is a highly efficient method of transferring heat away from the motor. Cooling efficiency is maintained even at lower speeds, ideal for constant torque applications.

Typical water cooled motor applications include thruster and propolsion motors, wind turbine generators, water and waste water pumps, tunnel-boring machines, extruders, printing presses and paper machines.

Frame Sizes:
IEC 280 to 500
Output Power:
90 to 2000 kW
IP 55, IP 56
