What role do motors and drives play in the water industry?
One our most vital resources, but one that we also tend to take for granted, is of course, water. For the water industry the processes that are required to maintain this service are numerous and provide many challenges in terms of efficiency and reliability. One of the most crucial components within the water treatment and delivery process is the humble electric motor, which along with its associated drive systems, provide the power necessary to keep the cycle in motion.

Demand from petrochemical industries boosts motors market

Demand from petrochemical industries boosts motors market
The key drivers for the growth of electric motor market in Saudi Arabia are expansion of public infrastructure, government policies to support establishment of new industries and large scale investments in the power and water utility sector. However, the market volume declined in 2016 due to lower government spending as a result of budget deficit on the back of falling crude oil prices. According to 6Wresearch, Saudi Arabia electric motors market revenues are projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% during 2017-23.

Combined bearings and profiles for lifting applications

Combined bearings and profiles for lifting applications
A reliable, efficient and cost effective lifting system is essential for heavy duty fabrications and automation projects can become a mine field. With so many different solutions available often the time invested in finding the most suitable solution for an application is devoted to the type of screw jack and motor used. However, if you start to look at some of the ‘lesser’ components then the cost of the entire application can be reduced, whilst maintaining a trustworthy and economical system.
