Regal Introduces Commercial Refrigeration Motors Product Suite
Line of electronically commutated motors (ECM) provides customers with options for compact design, application flexibility and low global warming potential (GWP) compatibility
BELOIT, Wis., June 30, 2018 — Regal Beloit Corporation, a leading manufacturer of electric motors, electrical motion controls, power generation and power transmission components, announced it has integrated its Genteq® electronically commutated motor products for the refrigeration industry to consolidate product offerings for its customers.
Regal’s commercial refrigeration motors include the recently launched GlacAir® air-flow solution, which utilizes an axial flux ECM design for higher-efficiency commercial refrigeration applications such as display cases and reach-in coolers. The GlacAir motor and fan offer customers a more compact, versatile design through approximately a one-inch reduction in the motor profile, allowing for flexibility with motor placement. The motor also provides a quieter airflow solution to complement smaller systems with a lower ambient noise while offering compatibility with the natural refrigerant R-290 (propane) through the motor’s ATEX certification.
“As more customers migrate to a propane-ready solution, which has a very low global warming potential potential but is also highly flammable, our GlacAir motor is ATEX certified and is not an ignition source; so, it is suitable in operations with the flammable refrigerant,” said Jim Steele, business leader, commercial refrigeration group, Regal. “In addition to compatibility with R-290, we focused heavily on a smaller motor design so that the retail space within a display case or reach-in cooler can be even further maximized and as a result, increase the potential retail space throughout a store.”
Additional product offerings include the ARKTIC® 59 and ICE® 59 ECMs designed for use in the evaporator of large commercial refrigeration walk-in coolers and freezers. The ARKTIC 59 motor offers high efficiency and dependability with output ratings up to 50 watts, while the ICE 59 motor offers output ratings up to 74.6 watts. Regal also offers Morrill Motors® and Elco® basic shaded pole motors for low cost, efficient solutions.
