Spare Motor for Sugar Plants
MENZEL ELEKTROMOTOREN has configured a flexible spare motor for one of Europe’s leading sugar producers, which can replace motors of various other makes if necessary. While the customer can basically employ the three-phase squirrel cage motor in any of its plants around the world, it is, in fact, specifically designed for the sugar beet pulp dryers in four plants in Germany and Sweden.

With a rated output of 1400kW, it covers the drive power requirements of four separate systems, ranging from 1000kW to 1400kW. It is designed as a vertical motor for flange mounting (IM V1 standing or IM V3 suspended). In addition, an adapter also manufactured by Menzel enables foot mounting in a system with a V2 flange. The motor with cooling type IC 616 meets the protection class IP55. The customer was on site for acceptance testing at Menzel’s Berlin plant. 

The modular MEBKSL motor series enables a variety of cooling types and ingress protection ratings as well as various mounting options at optimised production costs. The tried-and-tested design meets high size, performance, cost-effectiveness, and reliability standards.
