Three Unique Things That Will Help You to Pick the Right Electric Motor for Your Facility

Have you been planning to start a new facility in the back yard? Do you want to install another production line because the current one is overwhelmed? Well, no matter the objective for the new line, one thing that you will require is an electric motor. Actually, you might need several depending on the nature of the facility. To get the right electric motor, here are the four most important things to consider.

Understand the load characteristics

For most line operated motors, loads can be categorized into three main groups; the standard (constant) torque, the torque that changes suddenly, and the change that shifts gradually. For example, conveyors for moving materials, compressors and displacement pumps operate at the relative speed level torque.

The secret to selecting a great motor is selecting the one that has speed-torque curve exceeding your load torque curve. Consider going for top selections such as baldor M1208T.

Understand inertia especially start-up

Inertia is very critical especially at startup. Every load that will be moved using the motor represents some value of inertia. However, ball mills, punch presses, and crushers that move large rolls will require higher starting torque. This is necessitated by the mass of the huge rotating elements.

The secret to such applications is picking the motors with special ratings to lower the risk of raising temperatures beyond the accepted limits at startup. Besides, the right motor should be able to turn the involved load starting from dead stop, pull it right to the operating speed, and maintain the operating speed. Note that motors, according to NEMA are rated into 4 different categories; A, B, C, and D. For example, the type B motor is considered the industry standard is ideal for most industrial and commercial applications.

Go for top brands that have won international reputation

While every single aspect of the electric motor is very important if you are looking forward to buy a new motor, it is advisable follow expert reviews and past user’s feedbacks. If an electric motor was so effective that every user gave a positive feedback and every expert is praising it, you also need to consider acquiring it. For example, the baldor M1208T has been receiving positive feedbacks. You need to consider such highly rated motors to enjoy similar top performance, higher output and great value for money. When it comes to picking the right electric motor for your facility, do not hold back because the device could be the determinant of whether you will fail or succeed.
