Motor Enclosures

  • ODP (Open Drip Proof) - Motors with open enclosures, typically used in clean, non hazardous areas. Vents are designed to prevent liquids and debris from entering the motor from an angle of 0 to 15°.

  • TEFC (Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled) = Motor with a small fan on the rear shaft of the motor. Typically used in very wet, dirty or dusty areas.

  • TEAO (Totally Enclosed Air Over) - Motor with dust-tight enclosure and an aerodynamic design. This type of motor is desined to allow the air flow of the fan/blower keep the motor cool.

  • TENV (Totally Enclosed, Not Ventilated) - Motor with a dust-tight, enclosure with no air vents. These small hp motors are cooled by convection to the frame.

  • XPRF (Explosion Proof) -Motors designed to withstand an internal explosion of gas or vapor. If such an explosion happens, the gas/vapor will not ignite.
