Weg’s new IEEE 841-2001 NEMA Premium motor exceeds IEEE 841-2001 efficiency ratings and is suited for pulp and paper mills, as well petrochemical plants and steel mills where a severe-duty motor is needed.

Specialty features include the Weg labyrinth seal, which, with an IP65 degree of protection, exceeds the requirements of IEEE 841 Non-Contact Rotating Seal requirements. Several optional features are available. Sizes range from 1 hp to 500 hp, three-phase, 60 Hz, 230V, 460V or 575V TEFC.
