Induction motors are the most common type of motor used in residential, commercial and industrial environments. Depending on the type and characteristics of induction motors, their applications vary.
Induction motors, also known as asynchronous motors, are the most frequently used type of motor in residential, commercial and industrial environments. Depending on the type and characteristics of different induction motors, they are used in different applications.
Application of single-phase induction motor
Split-phase induction motors have a low starting torque and are mostly used in equipment such as washing machines, centrifugal pumps, and blowers. Capacitor start and capacitor start capacitor run motors both require high inertia loads with frequent starts, so they are mostly used in equipment such as pumping equipment, compressors, refrigerators, etc. Shaded pole induction motors are mostly used for small equipment, such as hair dryers, projectors, etc.
Application of three-phase induction motor
Squirrel cage Induction motors are commonly used in industrial manufacturing. They are particularly suitable for applications that the motor must maintain a constant speed, be self-starting or require low maintenance, such as centrifugal pumps, large blowers, and fans. Slip ring induction motor can adjust the speed without any external motor control. It is often used in equipment that requires high starting torque or low starting current, such as lifts, printing presses, etc.
Single-phase induction motors are usually small and easy to use, so they are widely used in industry, agriculture, and household appliances. Three-phase induction motors are mostly used in external computer equipment, lathe systems, CNC machine tools, and medical equipment.
