Vertical solid shaft motors for harsh environments
Siemens’ HP100 and LP100 Simotics vertical solid shaft (VSS) NEMA premium motors are designed for demanding applications such as in-line pumps; booster, centrifugal and non-clog pumps; vertical turbine; mix flow; and propeller pumps. The motors are designed and built to stand up to the harsh environments in industries such as oil and gas, petrochemical, pulp and paper, water and wastewater treatment. The motors’ angular contact thrust bearings are located in the non-drive end of the motor, which is designed to cool the motor fan. It also makes regreasing or changing these bearings easier because of this design. This makes for reduced cost and downtime due to motor maintenance. Both motors have cast-iron construction, oversized terminal box, bolted lifting eyes, corrosion resistant hardware and and epoxy finish.
