Multi-mount cast iron electric motor range
Third Quarter 2019, Shaft power components


In an industry first, Bearings International (BI) is introducing a multi-mount cast iron Bauer electric motor range onto the market that can accommodate the terminal box on the top, left-hand or right-hand side. The major benefit is that it reduces duplicate stockholding to accommodate different terminal box positions.

Traditionally, cast iron electric motors were available in a wide range from 0,37 up to 400 kW, with BI only catering for top-mounted terminal boxes. “Some plants either have top, left-hand or right-hand terminal boxes, making it a complex and costly exercise to stock all three,” explains product manager, Lewis Hiepner. “BI itself ordered whichever variant was required ex-factory, with a normal lead time of about 14 weeks.”

This is now all set to change with the industry’s first multi-mount cast iron motor. BI has contracted with a major manufacturer to produce what are termed loose feet, a bolt-on addition that transforms a normal motor into a multi-mount version that is adaptable to specific plant configurations. The Bauer motor range from BI is also available in various energy efficiency ratings, from IE1 as standard and IE2 high efficiency, all the way through to IE3 and even IE4.

The multi-mount motor range, being cast iron, is particularly robust, and therefore ideal for the arduous operating conditions of mining operations. “We have received significant interest in the new Bauer multi-mount range, combined with its energy saving potential,” Hiepner concludes.
