ABB offers a range of hazardous electric motors designed for use in potentially explosive environments. These motors are specifically engineered to meet stringent safety standards and regulations. The ABB hazardous range contains a variety of low and high-voltage motors and generators for all protection types, which are certified according to all major standards.
The ABB Hazardous Electric motor range consists of the below:
- Explosion-proof motors: designed to contain any internal explosion and prevent the ignition of the surrounding flammable atmosphere.
- Increased safety motors: These motors are built with enhanced protection measures to minimize the risk of ignition in hazardous areas.
- Flameproof motors: Also known as “Ex d” motors, these motors are constructed with a robust enclosure that can withstand internal explosions
- Dust ignition-proof motors: specifically designed for environments where combustible dust particles are present.
- Non-sparking motors: These motors are engineered to minimize the risk of sparks, which can ignite flammable gases or dust.
