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.
