PLEUGER Submersible Pumps & Motors

PLEUGER Submersible Motors

Pleuger submersible motors have been providing successful and reliable service since 1929.
The three phase motors are water-filled-AC-squirrel cage induction motors. lubrication and cooling is provided by a filling of clean water or environmentally safe anti freeze .the corrosion resistant stainless steel stator contains the aging – resistant, water proof insulated copper windings of high DI-electric strength .the stator is fully rewind able .
The electrical power supply is provided by a specially developed and water proof submersible motor cable, led into the motor through easy -to-assemble cable glands.
The dynamically balanced rotor rotates in over sized twin bearings on each end.

Vertical or Horizontal installation

Pleuger submersible motors are available for vertical or horizontal installation and also for hot water applications. In maintaining our reputation, pleuger continues to update and develop the outstanding design of the motors.

Long Service Life

A diaphragm in the motor base provides pressure/volume compensation of the motor during temperature changes. A high quality mechanical seal prevents the ingress of ambient liquid to the motor, fully protecting the motor against contamination.
An adjustable self-aligning thrust bearing allow high thrust load without problems and guarantees long service life, even under the heaviest duty conditions.
