WEG Electric Machinery (WEM) has manufactured motors and generators for the petroleum industry for the greater part of the past century. WEM understands that every application is different and will work with the customer to meet their needs.
Motors can be designed to API Standards, where applicable; meeting welding, structural, vibration and testing requirements. This helps customers avoid costly down time because the motors start and run reliably, with these other advantages from API design:
Motors can be built for operation in classified hazardous areas per NEC or IEC/EN (ATEX) requirements. For synchronous motors, standard brushless excitation is non-sparking for hazardous atmospheres.
Typical applications include:
