High-voltage squirrel-cage motor:

The breakdown of a compressor drive stopped the production of a new air separation plant in Austria.
Fortunately, EMZ was able to offer a 5,300kW squirrel-cage motor from stock. The motor could be modified and delivered within a fortnight. In co-operation with the operator and the manufacturer of the compressor, all data were gathered for the starting-up sequence calculation. A detailed calculation of the complete drive train was made as well, to reduce all possible risks before the installation. Our EMZ service personnel supported the customer upon installation and commissioning so that the operator could promptly continue with the production.
