EXPLOSION PROOF MOTORS

Explosion proof motors are required for industrial applications with the presence of highly Explosion Proof Motor-1 combustible, pervasive materials. These explosion proof motors have features that prevent an internal motor explosion from igniting a larger, ambient, combustible atmosphere.

Motors can create an explosion by one of two means: A motor surface gets so hot during operation that it ignites a vapor, gas or dust or a single arc from a motor malfunction, such as a winding insulation failure or power supply issue, ignites an ambient material.

Explosion proof motors are required for industrial applications with the presence of highly combustible, pervasive materials. Explosion proof does not mean that the motor will never explode, nor that it is immune from external explosions. Rather, an explosion proof motor has features that prevent an internal motor explosion from igniting a larger, ambient, combustible atmosphere.

Preventive safety requires careful selection of equipment, particularly electric motors, in dangerous oil and gas recovery, chemical and petroleum refinery and mining environments.

WorldWide Electric Explosion Proof motors feature a Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled Explosion Proof (TEXP) enclosure, designed for industrial applications with the presence of highly combustible, pervasive materials. Designed and built to meet both Class I and Class II hazardous location requirements, WorldWide Electric Explosion Proof motors are fully tested and certified for explosion proof classification in a 460 Volt configuration.  Worldwide Electric
