IEC low voltage motors for cement and mining industries

Mines and cement production facilities are tough environments for electrical equipment. ABB motors are designed to withstand these harsh conditions. Challenges that have to be faced include dust and mineral particles, vibration, moisture, heat and temperature fluctuations.

ABB supplies wide range of LV motors suitable for mining and cement industries. Cast iron motors are a perfect choice for the majority of applications and certified Ex d flameproof motors for group I applications where explosive gases may be present. These motors can be used in a broad range of applications, including conveyors, slurry and dewatering pumps, screens, ventilation fans, drill rigs, as well as crushers and mills.

Recent examples are higher efficiency new technology motors, ABB AMXE motors, specially designed for heavy electric vehicles, as well as solutions for remote condition monitoring that enable plant operators to reduce downtime, increase motor lifetime and save energy.
