|Listed below is the information you will need to select your motor. If you are replacing an existing motor, the following information can be located on the nameplate of the motor. See the sample nameplate on this page: |
Step 2: Determine Your Motor Type
|General-Purpose Motors are intended for mechanical loads, air-moving, and for hard to start applications such as conveyors, belt-driven equipment, machine tools, and reciprocating pumps. These motors utilize ball bearings to handle heavier loads and heavier construction for industrial applications. |
Definite-Purpose Motors are used in specific applications and the motor’s features are all driven by the specific application. Such motors include washdown, hazardous location, pump duty, etc.
HVAC Motors are designed primarily for air moving and other light to medium duty applications such as fans, centrifugal pumps, small tools, and office equipment. DC Motors are used in numerous industrial applications because the speed to torque relationship is so flexible. Speeds can be varied, and full torque can be reached within the operational speed range.
DC Motors are used on constant-torque loads such as conveyor belts, elevators, cranes, and more.
