All possible protection
Argus Super Chem paint finish from Brook Crompton offers contamination protection.
Brook Crompton motors are in widespread use at offshore oil and gas rigs and production platforms, oil refineries, chemical works, coal mines, petrol stations and onshore terminals - including the world's largest grain terminal, in China. In all these situations and applications, they deliver power steadily, reliably and safely, with minimal attention over long periods.
All Brook Crompton manufacturing facilities are certified to meet ISO9001, and all Brook Crompton motors are built to the latest national and international standards, and certified by the relevant national authorities.
The range includes flameproof motors for Zone 1, non-sparking motors for Zone 2, and motors designed and built to European standard EN 50281 for electrical equipment working in dust hazards (Zone 21 and 22).
In addition, Brook Crompton motors are available with a range of Argus brand paint finishes, for use in more rigorous environments. Argus Super Seal provides washdown protection; Argus Super Chem provides contamination protection for motors used in chemical and petrochemical plants, pulp, salt-laden atmospheres, dockside, sewage works and cooling towers; and Argus Monsoon Tropical Treatment is used externally and internally on motors operating in tropical climates, or subject to frequent deluge and heat/thermal cycling, such as occurs in the petrochemical, paper, glass-making and textile industries.
