Agricultural production is an integral part of not only the American economy, but the global economy as well. During the crop year of 2016 and 2017, a total of 212 billion pounds of milk were produced across the U.S. and an additional 2.6 billion metric tons of grain were produced across the globe. Those crops, and a few others, resulted in approximately $139.8 billion worth of U.S. agricultural exports.
There are more than 2 millions farms across the U.S. producing these agricultural products. All those acres of land rely strongly on agriculture motors for farm work and production services. Thankfully, agriculture motors have significantly improved over the last few years, and production farming and general agricultural tasks are far more achievable as a result.
Large horsepower single-phase motors are great for not only agricultural needs, but for industrial, municipal, oil and gas uses, as well as emerging market applications that rely on large horsepower output but only have access to single-phase power lines. With the Written-pole single-phase motor, three-phase power is able to be generated from a single-phase line without a phase converter.
This specific type of agricultural motor is excellent for certain farming tasks that need three-phase power, but the power is limited for various reasons. Additionally, the Written-pole single-phase motor is available in sizes up to 100 horsepower and have been known to be as efficient as it is powerful.
The Written-pole single-phase motor can be utilized for 15 horsepower, as well as 30 HP, 40 HP, 50 HP, 60 HP, 75 HP, and 100 HP.
There is a lot of important information out there about agricultural motors and power sources — and it’s your responsibly to know what professionals can help you better understand the ins and outs of these major systems. If you want to learn more about agriculture motors for farm irrigation systems or other land-related services, or want to hear about the potential uses for single-phase motors, give your local single-phase motor dealer a call today.
