W22 Line of Electric Motors


View_products_buttonThe increasing demand for electrical energy to sustain global development requires consistent heavy investments in power supply generation. However, in addition to complex medium and long term planning, these investments rely on natural resources, which are becoming depleted due to constant pressures upon the environment. The best strategy, therefore, to maintain energy supply in the short term is to avoid waste and increase energy efficiency. Electric motors play a major role in this strategy; since around 40% of global energy demand is estimated to be related to electric motor applications. Consequently, any initiatives to increase energy efficiency, by using high efficiency electric motors and frequency inverters, are to be welcomed, as they make a real contribution to reductions in global energy demand. At the same time as efficiency initiatives make an impact in traditional market sectors, the application of new technologies in emerging sectors is resulting in profound changes in the way that electric motors are applied and controlled. By integrating these changes together with the demands for increased energy efficiency, WEG has taken up the challenge and produced a new design of high efficiency electric motor; one that exceeds the performance of WEG’s previous W21 motor line, which is recognized worldwide for its quality, reliability and efficiency. Using the latest generation of computerized tools, such as structural analysis software (finite element analysis) and computer fluid dynamics, as well as electrical design optimization software, an innovative, next generation product has been developed: the W22 electric motor. Several key objectives have been achieved in the design of the W22 motor: • Reduction of noise and vibration levels • Increased energy efficiency and reduced thermal footprint • Easy maintenance • Compatibility with present & future generations of frequency inverters • Flexible and modular design W22-Solid-Feet-300x300W22-Fan-Cover-300x300 W22-Terminal-Box-300x300 Reducing carbon footprint and cutting costs with the W22 W22 range of three-phase induction motors, designed to offer not only significantly lower energy consumption, but lower noise and vibration, higher reliability, easier maintenance and lower cost of ownership. Consisting of three products, each designed to exceed the requirements of the NEMA MG 1-2009, the W22 Super Premium Efficiency, NEMA Premium Efficiency and High Efficiency can reduce energy losses by between 10% and 50% compared with other typical motors. It’s an extremely effective way to reduce your carbon footprint, as well as your energy costs. W22 motors fully comply with the energy efficiency requirements of the EcoAction legislation from Canada and the EISA 2007 (Energy Independence and Security Act 2007) from the USA.
