Industrial DC and AC Motors

BK Power Systems is an authorized reseller for an extensive portfolio of industrial single-phase and three-phase AC motor brands including Reliance, ABB, Baldor, Marathon Electric, Cemp, and WEG. These brands are known for long traditions of quality, durability, and in- depth engineering knowledge of industrial processes and power transmission system design.

Single-phase and three- phase AC motors may be sourced for any size industrial application. Washdown or stainless-steel enclosures may be required for food handling applications, and flameproof (also called explosion proof) motors may be needed in environments where flammable gases may be present. In other industrial applications, TEFC (totally enclosed, fan cooled) or ODP (open drip- proof) enclosures may be sufficient.

The USA and other jurisdictions have efficiency standards requirements for AC motors, and some regulations may be application-specific. High efficiency, high-quality motors also have the advantages of running cooler, lasting longer, and reducing energy costs, compared to older motor designs. Motors consume about 65% of all energy usage in industrial applications. Accessories such as brakes, blowers, soft start or variable frequency drives, may be added as required by your specific application.

When sending a quote request or information request for AC motors, where a specific model is unknown, please include as much information as possible about your application and specifications. If the motor is to be a replacement, it is helpful to send a picture of the name plate of the existing motor, or as much information from the name plate as possible. Our lines of industrial AC motor products are suitable for mining and aggregate, food production, petroleum exploration and production, petrochemical, pulp and paper, material handling conveyors, and other industrial rotating equipment. Also available are DC motors for all applications, and IEC motors. Images courtesy Baldor-Dodge-Reliance, WEG Motors, Cemp, Marathon Electric and ABB.
