Product Details Supplier Info More products

Baldor has published a brochure detailing the range of motors that it produces for nuclear applications.

The product line features more than 250,000 ratings, types, styles and sizes, from 200W to 11,000kW.

The brochure is targeted at anyone seeking to install or replace a motor in a nuclear power plant or in a nuclear fuel reprocessing or radioactive waste management facility.

Typical uses include driving fans, pumps, compressors and motorised valve actuators.

The brochure details all the motors that Baldor produces for use in Class 1E (safety-related) mild and harsh environments, as well as radiation-resistant motors for operation in non-Class 1E commercial or industrial environments.

Every Baldor nuclear motor component – from the motor hardware to the rotor and stator – fully complies with the appropriate IEEE and NUREG standards governing nuclear power plants.

Baldor Class 1E nuclear motors are available in a range of Nema and IEC frame sizes and are designed, manufactured and tested under a nuclear-quality assurance programme in compliance with the US’s Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) 10CFR50 Appendix B standard.

Class 1E motors for use in a harsh environment are qualified for a total radiation dosage of 2 x 106 Gy over a 40-year life; those intended for use in a mild environment are qualified for a total radiation dose of 1 x 102 Gy over the same period.
