General-Purpose AC Motors

General-purpose AC motors are electric motors that convert AC power into torque through rotational force to drive mechanical loads. They’re suitable for many applications, such as powering pumps, blowers, conveyors, fans, and machine tools, if they’re compatible. Palmer’s Electric Motors & Pumps is proud to offer a wide selection of single-phase and three-phase general-purpose AC motors in various voltages and enclosures rated from fractional horsepower up to 100 horsepower. Single-phase motors are designed to be used where single-phase power is available. They utilize capacitors during startup to provide additional power, resulting in higher torque, and an additional capacitor for a higher operating efficiency. Three-phase general-purpose electric motors can efficiently produce high amounts of torque, resulting in larger horsepower ratings without the need for capacitors to start or run. Most three-phase motors have single-phase counterparts to fit your unique needs.
