Oil and Gas
Both brushed and brushless motors have many applications in the Oil and Gas industry.
For the development of custom versions of its standard motors, as well as for ‘clean sheet’ designs, the phase-gated project that PMW offers clients can include feasibility studies and selection of appropriate technology, electromagnetic modelling of the active motor elements followed by mechanical design, finite element analysis, component sourcing and procurement.
Specialist subcontractors can be selected from PMW’s range of partner companies when required to work with extreme materials and precision, followed by manufacture, assembly and test. Installation services and technical support are also offered.
Application: Oilfield Services
Application: a control valve for gas turbines
PMW has supplied hundreds of brushed pancake motors from its GM series to control the opening and closing of gas valves in gas turbine plants worldwide.
The GM12 motor is chosen because of its very smooth torque, responsive acceleration and deceleration, and high precision control at slow speeds.
Short and compact, the GM12 is usually used in combination with a precision encoder.
