Loher drives, both in low and high voltage design, are in operation worldwide in the process, chemical and petrochemical industries, in elevators and escalators, in mines, in marine applications on ships, on production rigs and even subsea. Loher also manufactures for environmentally friendly applications such as generators using wind and waterpower.
COMPLETE ELECTRICAL AND MECHANICAL DRIVE SYSTEM
Loher is one of the very few companies worldwide to offer the complete electrical and mechanical drive system. We have a unique position in our markets that enables us to offer customers our complete knowledge of electrical and process-related drive technology; all this delivered from one partner.
LOW AND HIGH VOLTAGE MOTORS AND GENERATORS
We offer a wide range of low and high-voltage motors and generators with outputs ranging from 0.1kW to 8,000kW:
- Explosion-proof motors: non-sparking, increased safety, flame-proof enclosure and pressurized enclosure
- Special motors and inverters: for market niches, e.g. wind turbines, sub sea, mining and high temperature applications
- Frequency inverters: from 0.4kW to 6,000kW (200V to 950V)
- Special motors and inverters: for ‘high end applications’, e.g. for elevators, escalators, cranes, conveyor systems, extruder, mixer and ship drives
DRIVE COMPONENTS FOR THE CHEMICAL AND PETROCHEMICAL INDUSTRY
Loher offers CHEMSTAR industrial three-phase motors for applications in chemical and petrochemical industry: an economical and ecological alternative with minimum life cycle-costs, meeting all essential technical requirements of the industry. Complete technical documentation is available on CD-ROM. Preferred types are available from ex stock.
VOLTAGE SOURCE INVERTERS
Loher also delivers DYNAVERT T voltage source inverters with PWM and IGBT technology, optimised for use in the chemical and petrochemical industries. It is a completely equipped device series that is fully digitised with voltage vector modulation, with cable lengths between the inverter and motor (up to 300m possible without sine filter).
Optimum integration into process control by Profibus activation is offered, as well as optimum functionality with a minimum of connection lines. Additionally, transparent communication for commissioning, process control and maintenance is delivered plus reliability and unambiguous diagnostics in case of process failures. Improved availability is now on hand.
OUR TRADITION IS OUR FUTURE
