Pentek® XE-6 / XE-8, 6" and 8" Submersible Motor Series for Ag/Irrigation

The Pentek XE-6 / XE-8 submersible motor combines outstanding performance and durability with innovative and advanced design features to provide the perfect solution for your submersible motor needs.

Key Features

Encapsulated design - offers superior insulation, heat transfer properties, and stability to the motor windings.

Lower amp draw, higher efficiencies (vs leading 6" submersible motors) = lower operating costs.

EXCLUSIVE - Advanced Protection System - provides three layers of defense against sand and debris intrusion:

  1. External sand slinger boot:
    Features a labyrinth seal design to better capture any sand or debris, keeping it away from the shaft
  2. Lip Seal:
    Located below the sand slinger, providing an extra layer of defense
  3. Mechanical seal - silicon carbide:
    Excellent abrasion, wear, and corrosion resistance
    Resists deflection in high-pressure, high-heat, and high-speed conditions
    High thermal conductivity (heat dissipation)
    Provides superior protection against sand intrusions

Thrust bearings - water-lubricated, Kingsbury-type. Thrust ratings are between 3% and 35% better than leading 6" submersible motors
 
Motor lead - 17' - potted connection, including ground wire. Non-jacketed wire assembly for easier handling and connections. Fully field replaceable.
 
Exceptional insulation rating (Class F) and temperature rating (95 F / 35 C)
IP 68 protection rating
Vertical or horizontal operating orientation
VFD-compatible
 
Designed & Assembled in the USA
