Advantages of PCB Stator Technology in Pump Motors

The Powerhouse Behind Industrial Pumps.

Axial flux motors, particularly those equipped with PCB (Printed Circuit Board) Stators, are making waves across industrial applications, with particular relevance for pump solutions.

Advanced motors, designed by award winning technology provider ECM PCB Stator Tech, provides a host of advantages for industrial pump applications. When paired to PrintStator Motor CAD, ECM offers premium efficiency electric motors that are smaller, quieter, lighter, and more durable next generation solutions… In this blog post, we will explore the remarkable benefits of combining the power of ECM’s PCB Stator technology with pump motors. 

Space Utilization 

A notable advantage of using PCB Stator Technology in pump motor applications is their space-efficient, lightweight design. The compact and axially thin structure of these motors allows for versatile installations in diverse industrial settings. In cases where space is at a premium—such as offshore drilling platforms or compact industrial plants—the ability to save space without sacrificing performance is a valuable asset. PCB Stator motors deliver, offering a smaller footprint when compared to traditional radial flux motors. 

Optimal Cooling 

Industrial pump motors operate continuously, necessitating effective cooling mechanisms to prevent overheating. ECM’s PCB Stator motors shine in this regard, thanks to their exceptional heat dissipation capabilities. ECM’s patented thermal design, utilizing inactive copper as “heat-pipes”, enables efficient heat transfer. This ensures that the motor remains within its optimal temperature range even under heavy loads. This superior cooling not only extends the motor’s lifespan but also reduces the risk of breakdowns due to overheating.

Improved Efficiency and Reduced Cost  

In today’s industrial landscape, energy efficiency is a top priority. PCB Stator motors offer significant energy savings when compared to their radial flux counterparts.

Their heightened efficiency results in reduced power consumption, which, in turn, translates to cost savings. A leading UK magazine, Drives and Controls, described ECM PCB Stator Technology as “much lighter and more efficient” than competitors, adding that ECM’s axial flux motor is 94% efficient (2.9% higher than the leading rival). Not to mention the motor is 68% lighter, requires 66% less copper, and has a smaller form factor than the leading rival. In pump applications, where energy consumption can be substantial, this advantage can have a significant impact on overall operating costs, underscoring the commitment to sustainability

Precise Control 

Precise control of flow rates and pressures is often essential in pump applications. Many popular pump solutions offer a high efficiency level but run continuously at peak power, with the liquid flow controlled by valves, meaning there is an overconsumption of power. PCB Stator motors enable a clear improvement in this regard due to their high level of controllability. ECM motors designed on PrintStator offer flatter efficiency curves, which enable higher efficiency across a range of operating points. This elevated controlability allows pumps to respond rapidly to changes in demand, ensuring that the required flow rates and pressures are maintained with precision.  

Durability and Longevity 

Industrial pumps face harsh operating conditions, from extreme temperatures to corrosive environments. PCB Stator motors are constructed to meet these challenges head-on.

Their robust build and durable materials make them an ideal choice for demanding applications. Additionally, the absence of traditional winding wires in PCB Stator motors reduces the risk of short circuits and coil damage, further bolstering their reliability and longevity. 

Minimizing Maintenance 

Reducing downtime and maintenance costs is a universal priority in the industrial world. PCB Stator pump motors meet this need admirably. Their simplified design, with fewer moving parts, results in lower maintenance requirements. This translates to fewer disruptions in industrial processes, reduced maintenance costs, and improved overall productivity. PCB Stator motors are designed to work efficiently with minimal intervention, allowing industries to focus on what they do best.
