Improving energy efficiency is the key theme of WEG's stand 3C90 at this year's Offshore Europe. The company will be showcasing its W22Xd Super Premium Efficiency range of hazardous area motors - which meet IE4 energy efficiency standards and are the most energy efficient flameproof motors available on the market. Visitors can also meet WEG's technical specialists, who will be available to discuss the latest innovations in electric motors and challenges faced in electric automation, and how the oil and gas industry can reduce energy usage and operate efficiently. WEG's W22Xd hazardous area motors are designed to cope with the rigours of aggressive and explosive atmospheres, while exceeding high IE4 energy efficiency levels with minimised noise, vibration, and low operating temperature for increased reliability and safety.
The motors are available in sizes 3.0 kW to 1000 kW for gas groups IIA, IIB and IIC, and are ATEX Certified. With the W22Xd motors, WEG has the widest range of energy efficient low voltage hazardous area motors available in the market today and has the ideal explosion-proof motor solution for virtually every situation, from gas pipelines in the Arctic to drilling rigs in the hottest parts of the Arabian Desert. The company's experts will also be talking about the new larger IEC 800 frame size model, the W22X 800. Designed to meet the needs of the most demanding energy-intensive medium-voltage and high-voltage applications, the new W22X 800 frame size motors deliver excellent performance with an efficiency of up to 97.4% and ensure low maintenance and operating costs, making them ideal for applications where harsh environmental conditions demand high reliability and robustness without compromising on energy efficiency.
