SME – WD Series Motors – for Open Well or Sump Applications Submerged or not Submerged, Cast Iron, Steel, or Stainless Steel Construction
SME has many years experience in the manufacture of submersible motors and the WD series of motors have been designed for the toughest jobs to ensure reliability and a long service life. When conditions are extreme and performance is critical these motors deliver the quality and durability required.
WD motors are designed for continuous operation in sludge, effluent, slurry, and other liquids – to a submergence of 10 metres, in an open well, a river bank, a tailings pond, or a sump. The motors are air filled, with a separate oil ﬁlled seal chamber to ensure robust sealing of the drive shaft. The WD Series motors can also be supplied with a large range of sealing options to ensure the motor is suitable for the most extreme conditions from a combination of lip seals, and/or mechanical seals, to complex cartridge seal arrangements.
