1750 Horsepower Heater Drain Motor
PMW was approached by one of the biggest names in nuclear power to provide a replacement for an obsolete unit for the facility’s heater drain application. This 1750 horsepower, 4 pole, 4000 volt, vertical solid shaft motor had to be a ground up scratch build in order to create an identical replacement to the existing unit. Since the original motor was fabricated steel, no casting was needed. PMW engineers, machinists, and mechanics were able to design and fabricate every component in-house for the build. From the copper bar rotor and M-19 C5 stator core, to the cooling coils and bearing housings, this motor is an original PMW product.
