Speed Changes for Industrial Applications

Motor Speed Safety Practices for the Solar Eclipse Industrial Knowledge Zone

The large majority of plant operations are powered by electric motors. Even so, it is rare to achieve full output speed with the most common design type of electric motors, the NEMA B. How do operators select the motor change speeds that are right for equipment processes? Motor speed can be varied through the use of electronic drives or mechanically with belts and sheaves, chain and sprockets or gearing.
