6-Inch Submersible Motors

6-Inch Encapsulated MagForce™ High Efficiency Motor

The 6-inch permanent magnet motor is engineered for high performance, simple startup and incredible long-term cost savings. Based on field trial data, owners and operators benefit from electrical cost savings as a result of 90% efficiency rating in the motor for an investment payback of less than two years in typical duty rate applications. Each MagForce High Efficiency System is powered with a permanent magnet motor that operates at a fraction of the energy consumption when compared to traditional induction systems. Plus, each 6-inch permanent magnet motor is paired with an innovative Franklin Electric engineered drive for intuitive startup and reliable protection for submersible pumping applications.
