O2.DRP

4" 2-wire single-phase oil-cooled motors

Electric motors from series O2 are 2 pole asynchronous single-phase submersible motors, designed to operate coupled to ZDS 4” hydraulic parts. Strong and reliable, they are made of materials suitable for contact with water and oil-cooled by FDA - Food Drug Administration approved dielectric fluid.
O2 motors are equipped with a special and unique start and run capacitor, which is designed to guarantee a long-life to the motor and avoid the installation of an external control panel.
They also come with a special and manually resettable built-in thermal protection, which stops the motor when overheated.
The supply cable connector, removable for quick and easy maintenance, is equipped with the DRP protection device. The DRP is an electronic device, integrated into the connection cable that guarantees optimal protection of the submersible pump against dry running and other possible installation faults or operation failures. In case of water shortage, the DRP stops the pump when the water is below its sensor. The DRP (observing a programmed time) restarts the motor when the water rises above its sensor.
 
APPLICATIONS
O2 oil-cooled motors ensure reliable working in 4” or larger diameter wells and are designed to be used for lifting, distribution, and pressurisation of water in water systems.

Automatic protections

Dry-running protection

Dry-running protection

The DRP completely protects the O2.DRP motor against lack of water in the well, without the aid of other equipment (probes, cables, sensors, control panels etc.). In case of dry running, the DRP automatically stops the pump. When the water level is restored in the well, the DRP restarts the motor after a programmed cycle time.

Thermal protection

Thermal protection

The built in thermal protection system stops the O2.DRP motor when overheated. This can happen because of: the high temperature of the pumped liquid; when the minimum distance between the pump installed and the well bottom isn’t respected; when the pump is installed in well/tanks bigger than 4” without a proper cooling system; when the pump works in shut-off.

Current overload protection

Current overload protection

In case the pump is partially o totally blocked, the O2.DRP motor is protected against overload.

Protection against too frequent start&stops

Protection against too frequent start&stops

The DRP protects the pump against leaks in the piping system (also when the pressure tank is exhausted or its membrane is defective, or when there is a defective pressure switch) and too frequent starts and stops (for example if the tank is too small for the system). In such cases, to avoid potential damages, the DRP makes the pump enter the stand-by mode.

Low voltage protection

Low voltage protection

The DRP protects the O2.DRP motor against low voltage. Low voltage can occur, for example, if the section of the power cable is not adequate considering the motor power and the distance between the plug and the pump itself; or if a generator is faulty or undersized for the pump.

Information on a proper installation

  • Before installation, it is necessary to verify technical requirements of the given hydraulic part (thrust, power) to select the correct motor.
  • If you are using a generator with an internal combustion engine, it is necessary that the generator’s power measured in kW (in continuous delivery) is three times the rated power in kW of the submersible pump.
  • We recommend to install a proper cooling jacket in installations bigger than 10 cm, to guarantee the correct motor cooling flow.
  • The maximum quantity of sand allowed in the pumped water is 120g/m³.
  • The DRP must NOT be used with a frequency inverter.
  • DRP doesn’t work with demineralized water (such as rain water).
  • DRP must not be used as a float.
  • The DRP must be immersed in the same water as the pump in order to ensure continuity between the DRP and the pump casing.
  • In order to reset the electronic protection, disconnect the pump power, wait 10 seconds, then plug it in again.
  • In order to reset the thermal protection, disconnect the pump power, wait that the correct working temperature parameters are restored, then plug it in again.
