Electric motors for agricultural machinery and equipment. The power of Kolmer
The agricultural sector is a major consumer where electric motors are concerned. Many of the agricultural machines and equipment used in arable farming, fruit cultivation and horticulture, for example, are equipped with electric motors. A large part of agricultural machinery is only used during the harvest season, but there are many daily doings in the sector that also require well-functioning electric motors. The reliability of the electric motor is an important link in the efficiency of the agricultural sector. It is, therefore, important that agricultural machinery and equipment can function free of interference, especially during the harvest season. And if an emergency does occur, the quick availability of an electric motor is crucial. Thanks to our impressive stock of electric motors we, at Kolmer, are always able to respond quickly thereby reducing the downtime of the machine to an absolute minimum.
Applications of electric motors in the agricultural sector
The agricultural sector is very diverse and as a result the power range of electric motors in this discipline is usually quite substantial. We supply electric motors for agricultural machines that transport and preserve products, but also process them into end products. The smaller electric motors can be used for transport systems or devices that preserve the products during storage. An example would be small conveyor belts for the optimal storage of potatoes in a warehouse. There are other applications that have also found their way into this sector. For example, pump drive systems for clean and/or dirty water and pumps for transferring milk to milk tanker trucks. The agricultural sector is known for its diversity in terms of surrounding conditions. When we look at the cultivation of mushrooms, for example, the high humidity could present a challenge for electric motors. By applying a special coating and/or modifying the motor to a higher protection class, we can meet this challenge head on.
