Explosion-proof Motors for Underground Mining

Baldor Electric, a member of the ABB group, offers totally enclosed explosion-proof motors for use in the dust-filled explo-sive atmosphere of underground mines. Tight machining tolerances of the housings, bearing brackets, and the conduit box pro-vide the explosion-proof integrity required by international agencies. Cast iron conduit box parts along with packing glands and protec-tive hose connectors meet the requirements of ATEX, IEC, MSHA and other certifying agencies. The motor line meets or exceeds global high efficiency standards, provides up to 1,100 volt capability, and offers optional features such as special shaft con-figurations, double shaft extensions and flange mounting configurations.
