The motor has been designed for sandy wells and coal bed methane applications and was launched at the NGWA’s (National ground water association) Expo and Annual Meeting in December 4-7 in Las Vegas, USA.

The CentriPro Xtreme Duty motorcombines both sand fighting and coal bed methane motor capabilities into one unit. A silicon carbide mechanical seal and a felt diaphragm filter prevent coal fines and other abrasives from entering the motor. All sizes feature a 17-4 PH stainless steel shaft and 1500# thrust bearings, compared to the industry standard 2 hp and 3 hp motors with 900# bearings.

The complete line is available in: single-phase, 2-5 hp 230 Volt; three-phase, 3-7.5 hp 230 Volt;
three-phase, 3-10 hp 460 Volt.

The Xtreme Duty motor also features a new pressure equalizing diaphragm cover to prevent debris from entering. Other features of the Xtreme Duty motor include: standard 15 ft motor leads; silicon carbide mechanical seal rather than lip seals; top end bell to accommodate the mechanical seal with bronze seal cover; 304 Cast SS thrust bearing housing for corrosion resistance; epoxy painted diaphragm cover
