AXW Water Cooled Motors

ABB’s latest generation of water cooled motors – the AXW engineered motors for the Large AC market are available in AXW 5000 and AXW 5800 frames.

Advantages of AXW motors include higher power densities, smaller overall foot print size, reduction of noise, constant cooling on VSD applications to extend speed and power ranges, and reductions of heat in the surrounding environment. For harsh, contaminate filled environments the AXW is perfectly suited for continuous operation, due to the consistent cooling of the water jacket surrounding the motor.


  • Water jacket cooled motor

  • Advantages: constant cooling for variable speed applications, low noise, power dense, not susceptible to local environmental contaminates, removes heat local motor environment, and compact foot print
