Plug & play compressor motor

Published:  30 September, 2020

MENZEL ELEKTROMOTOREN says it has customised a motor for a compressor drive operated by Tata Steel, shipping it within just two weeks. A motor failure had stalled the booster air compressor, which is integral to one of the corporation's Indian steelworks, providing oxygen necessary for steel production. Thanks to its modular warehousing strategy, Menzel was able to speedily configure a squirrel-cage motor in accordance with customer specifications. The MEBKSL-type motor was electrically and mechanically adapted to enable installation and commissioning by the customer without further modifications of the motor or the site.

The motor with an operating voltage of 6600 V and a rated power of 3200 kW was fitted with an air-to-air heat exchanger (cooling type IC 611).
