Baldor introduces the Baldor-Dodge Vertical GearMotor
Baldor Electric Company announces a new addition to its gear reducer product offering, the Baldor-Dodge Vertical GearMotor. The Vertical GearMotor offers a cost-effective alternative to the common low-speed vertical pump drive technologies, which utilize large, high pole count vertical motors or a combination of horizontal motor with a right angle gear reducer. The Vertical GearMotor is built on a standard low pole count induction motor platform utilizing proven, highly efficient Dodge planetary gearing. This results in a smaller, lighter, highly efficient drive package.
The Baldor-Dodge Vertical GearMotor product line is available in six (6) sizes for vertical pump speeds from approximately 100 RPM to 500 RPM. The Vertical GearMotor has torque ratings from 550,000 in-lbs. through 7,000,000 in-lbs. and approximate power ratings from 750 HP to over 25,000 HP, depending on output RPM.
