Liquid cooled motor solutions

Liquid-cooled electrical machines offer a great option to air -cooled if cooling liquid is already available on the application site.  A liquid-cooled Randax® electrical machine can reach efficiency up to 50% higher than a corresponding air-cooled machine. This makes liquid-cooled Randax® electrical machines extremely compact and efficient.

Benefits of liquid cooling are high output-to-size ratio, dirt and dust cannot enter the closed cooling circuit and machine is not sensitive to surrounding air temperatures. Randax® motor technology enables the efficient cooling inside the entire machine frame and customized materials and coolants according to application and customer needs.

The liquid-cooled electrical motors can be tailored for example to pump liquids, to be used as a drive motor for vehicles and construction machinery or in demanding process industry applications.

Randax® has developed new series of liquid-cooled electrical motors for power range of 45 – 500 kW with following specifications.
