Severe motors are usually defined as severe duty motors with premium efficiency, TEFC squirrel-cage induction motors that have up to 370 kW. Severe duty motors are versions of standard TEFC motors
with various modifications that are better and tougher and more suited for application in industrial environments. They feature frames with extensive cast bracings, and their feet are thick with an added midpoint bracing. They are also heavier due to their cast iron frame than their counterpart standard TEFC motors that are usually made of rolled or stamped steel. They are also accessorized with improved seals like V-ring slingers that cover the drive and the opposite ends of their shafts
. Severe duty motors are often used to upgrade existing standard TEFC motors for various reasons, including failing equipment, poor bases, and upgrade opportunities. Some manufacturers offer severe duty motors in low, medium, and high voltage ranges and with double warranty compared to standard TEFC motors.
