Siemens in 2010 introduced the XP100 explosion proof motor for use in hazardous locations such as grain handling and grain processing facilities.
Thrives in Hazardous Environments
“The XP100 explosion proof motor is the workhorse of hazardous environments throughout North America,” says Business Development Manager, Motors – USA Scott Miklavcich. “Industries from grain handling and processing, oil and gas, and ethanol production depend on this motor for safety, efficiency, and long-life performance.”
“These motors are designed and manufactured to meet or exceed NEMA Premium® efficiency (MG1 Table 12-12) as well as the high requirements for safety and protection established by NFPA 70: National Electrical Code® (NEC),” he adds. “They’re UL listed for different hazardous atmospheres for gas and dust protection and prevent auto ignition events.”
