Bell & Gossett Submersible Vertical Turbine Pumps
· Hermetically Sealed Type
A Hermetically Sealed Type motor utilizes windings of standard construction and insulation thickness. The windings are encased and Hermetically Sealed within the external shell casing on the outside and an internal tube or liner inside the bore. The Hermetically Sealed enclosure eliminates the possibility of water leakage into the winding. The liquid medium circulates between the rotor and stator liner providing lubrication and cooling to the bearings.
· Wet Winding Type
A Wet Winding Type motor is one in which the motor windings are in direct contact with a liquid medium. The medium is clean, clear water. A pressure balancing system prevents exchange of the motor liquid medium and well water due to thermal expansion and contraction when the motor is operating. The liquid medium fills the inside of the motor and surrounds both the stator windings and the rotor. A completely waterproof insulation is used on the magnet wire used for the stator windings. The liquid medium inside the motor air gap and coils acts as a heat transfer device by circulating through the windings and transferring heat to the external casing. Dissipation of this heat occurs as the well water flows at a required velocity over the external case. As is the case in all submersible type motors, the internal liquid medium is also used for bearing lubrication.
