WEG will showcase its latest energy-efficient drive solutions at this year’s ACHEMA, advising how companies in the process industry can boost energy efficiency up to IE4 standards while reducing operating costs.

Visitors to WEG’s stand, can learn about WEG’s new W22X explosion-proof motor in IEC 800 frame size which has outstanding efficiency of up to 97.4%. Other highlights include ATEX-compliant geared motors, which combine W22X motors with robust gear units from WEG's subsidiary Watt Drive, as well as high-performance variable speed drives, all designed to help process managers increase operational efficiencies.

“ACHEMA is a great opportunity for us to show our commitment to helping the process industry achieve above-average efficiency not only in standard applications, but also in hazardous areas,” says Andreas Schulte Mesum, Energy Business Manager at WEG in Germany.

“Explosion-proof motors are presently excluded from the latest EU IE3 efficiency regulations, however, WEG is committed to offering the highest possible energy efficiency even in demanding applications, where reducing energy costs is top of the agenda.”
