?AMPERAGE?This is your electric motors TRUE power rating. Please make sure your FL amp (FULL LOAD) rating on the motor you're replacing is within 10% of the FL Amp rating of the motor you intend to buy.
?FRAME SIZE?The frame not only constitutes the bolt pattern, it also depicts the overall size and torque. The larger the frame, the stronger the motor. It's extremely important that you replace it with the same frame size. Improperly sized motors will inevitably result in motor failures.
?PHASE AND VOLTAGE?If your machine requires a 230V electric motor on single phase power. You would want to incorporate a 1-phase 230V AC electric motor for your application. 230V electric motors cannot handle voltages less than 208V. They will run too hot and you will experience motor failure.
?RPM?Matching up the RPM is quite important. The wrong speed can damage your pump. The RPM does not have to match exactly, but you do need to be the neighborhood.
?SHAFT DIAMETER?With a tape measure. Measure the outside diameter on your electric motors shaft. By matching up the proper shaft diameter, you will be able to reuse the original motor pulley that came on your machine.
