The Dodge Vertical Gearmotor (VGM) offers an alternative to the common vertical pump drive technologies, which utilize large, high pole count vertical motors or a combination of a horizontal motor with a right angle gear reducer. The Vertical Gearmotor can have significant benefits when compared to these other pump drive systems. Features ■ The Dodge Vertical Gearmotor has a smaller footprint and is lighter than traditional pump drive systems. Weight differential depends on the application, but is typically 10% to 30% less. This reduces support structure and facility costs. ■ The ability to use a lower pole count motor offers a significant cost savings opportunity over high pole count motors. The use of standard 4-6 pole motors increases availability. ■ Utilizing the reducer to accommodate thrust loading is more cost effective than designing this functionality into the motor. ■ Where an anti-rotation device is required, it is easily incorporated into the Vertical Gearmotor configuration. ■ Higher Efficiency and Power Factor ■ Optimal Pump Shaft Speed Common applications ■ Pumping applications Common industries ■ Chemical, Oil, and Gas ■ Water and Wastewater VGM benefits vs high pole vertical motors ■ Higher efficiency with low pole induction motors ■ Better power factor with low pole induction motors ■ Optimized pump speeds through gear ratios for system efficiency ■ Smaller physical size reduces facility requirements ■ Less weight reduces freight, handling and support structure costs ■ Easy to maintain Pumping applications ■ Pumping stations for flood control and wastewater ■ Circulating water in power plants
