Our new submersible electric motor, utilizing permanent magnet technology, the Pleuger PMM6 and PMM8

Based upon the reliable Pleuger three-phase, AC, submersible, squirrel-cage induction motor, the new Pleuger PMM has proven advantages over asynchronous designs, including higher efficiency at full and partial loads, lower thermal  losses and a robust, large air gap configuration. The result is a permanent magnet, electric submersible motor that reduces energy costs by up to 10 percent and boosts power output by nearly 50 percent while extending the overall life of the motor.

It is currently available in a 150 mm (6 inch) motor size with power output of 5 kW to 45 kW and a 200 mm (8 inch) motor size with power output of 50kW to 200kW. The PMM motor technology has demonstrated up to a 10 percent increase in efficiency when compared with current asynchronous motor designs. Operated in conjunction with variable frequency drives (VFDs), the PMM motor runs at synchronous speed with no rotor losses, which allows the pump to run at best efficiency point (BEP) under variable flow conditions.

As energy costs continue to rise, the ability of the Pleuger PMM6 and the PMM8 motor to deliver an approximate 10 percent increase in efficiency and extend motor life will produce cost savings in the water resources and general process industries. The new Pleuger permanent magnet motors are upwardly compatibly for existing sites.
