Motors are the powerful workhorses of municipal water
pumping systems and ABB offers a variety of motors that are perfectly suited to
handle these challenging applications. Made of cast iron and aluminum, these
robust motors operate well even in the toughest environments, while still being
easy and flexible to customize for your needs.
All ABB motors are designed to provide superior reliability
over a long lifetime. With diagnostic tools for preventive/predictive
maintenance, you can easily monitor and manage the motor’s status and
conditions – either on-site or remotely – to detect issues and be notified
about service needs before troublesome failures surprise you.
By giving you real-time insight into the motor’s condition
while it’s running, ABB Ability™ Smart Sensors and
measurement tools can help you achieve additional productivity gains and also
avoid breakdowns. In addition, ABB drives and soft starters provide
further protection from damaging stress by managing starting currents.
The IE5 ultra-premium SynRM motors offer up to 50 percent
lower energy losses and significantly lower energy consumption than the
commonly used IE2 induction motors. Installations have demonstrated energy
savings of up to 25 percent.
