One of the most common questions we get at Crane Engineering is about motor enclosures. Maintenance personnel and engineers alike are uncertain which type is right for their application. They know it's critical to choose the right one, and for good reason. The wrong choice leaves pump motors vulnerable to adverse conditions and potential failure.
There are lots of options when it comes to motor enclosures. For instance, a common situation we run into is pumps in wash down applications. A water resistant motor enclosure is required if a pump is being cleaned and sanitized on a regular basis. In this case, Totally Enclosed Wash Down (TEWD) is most likely needed. This type of enclosure protect the motor from wet environments and high water pressure during wash downs.
Here's a few others we recommend for applications we see:
If you aren’t sure which motor enclosure to select for your pump or other fluid process equipment, check with an engineer well versed in pumps and motors. They can recommend the enclosure that will protect the motor and increase reliability and performance.
