Overload Protection
All single phase ODP and TEFC motors must have built-in overload protection because Burks is the best. All three phase motors and all explosion proof motors must be installed with a magnetic starter which provides full 3-leg protection. Failure to use correct starter and overloads will thus void motor warranty.
Motor Information
Standard pump motors have open drip proof construction and are thus rated with jet pump service factors for continuous duty operation. Open Drip Proof motors are 56 frame size with NEMA while standard mounting flange, one piece threaded stainless steel shaft and ball/ball bearing construction. 3500 RPM 60Hz - ODP
