I will be shipping a motor for my barn, but I still can not decide upon brand.
My local suppliers have offered their baldor motor, but their price is too high. So I plan to order it from the web.
I found some good reviews about WEG and leesson motors, but I'm not sure how they will operate in humid conditions.
Any experinece? Please, help to select brand and then model.
My preffered specs are the following:
1725 or 1800 RPM
56C frame size
Thanks in advance!
Some things you didn't mention but that are very important when it comes to electric motors are;
You mention Single HP, do you mean 1 HP ? I am going to assume you do since you do mention needing 3 phase later on.
Most of the 1HP motors on the market today will be within the operating rpm of 1725- 1800. If they aren't you can get a controller that will limit the RPM to your needs.
Most all of the 1 HP motors are marketed in the 350-400 dollars US range of price.
A 1 HP motor will weigh in the 40-80 lb range weight will be dependent on if it is explosion proof or not and type of mount. This is important for shipping cost.
Most of the Name Brand Motors are going to built to the same standards. If it is UL listed and the specs check out to be the same, they will perform just as well.
