Teco Westinghouse: Optim VH Product Update


March 16, 2021

The Optim VH line of low voltage motors is a series of NEMA Standard 3-phase motors from Teco Westinghouse, featuring a vertical hollow shaft with high thrust that comes in 60Hz, 230/460V, 460V or 575V. The Optim VH Vertical Hollow Shaft motors are designed and engineered to meet all your pumping needs including wastewater, irrigation, water treatment and lift stations. These feature packed NEMA Premium efficiency inverter duty motors are built with the quality and durability that has made TECO-Westinghouse a global leader in electric motors.

As of late, the Optim VH series has received a design update. These changes include:

  1.    –   Couplings pre-installed (BX Dimension as listed below):

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
