Menzel constructs compatible spare motor in historical design

World Cement,

As a backup unit for an age-worn drive in a cement plant, Menzel Elektromotoren constructed a motor in a design no longer common in Europe today. The unusual order came from a customer in Jordan, who required a completely electrically and mechanically compatible spare motor to replace an aged motor, which had been running unsatisfactorily over time. Menzel delivered an 8-pole motor with a performance of 600 kW, rated voltage of 6000 V and speed of 740 min-1 in the requested design, thus ensuring the continued operation of an onsite ventilator. As a manufacturer of electrical motors, specialising in fast delivery of tailor-made motors, Menzel offers comprehensive motor-related services around the world and fulfills even special requests on short notice – like in this case copying an old, now uncommon type of construction. In addition to this motor, the Berlin-based company delivered a second, smaller squirrel cage motor with 315 kW performance and a speed of 992 min-1 in a compact, modern design for a different application in the same cement plant.

As per the customer's request, this backup drive for a cement plant was built in an outdated type of construction by Menzel Elektromotoren.
