Gast 16AM-FRV-13 Air Motor series offers variable operating speed and power output that can be adjusted to meet the precise needs of your application. Their air throttling and pressure control are not only cost-effective over electric motor controls but they also can be stalled or overloaded for long periods without damaging the motor. In addition to being a non-electrical device and cool running, Gast air motors are ideal for use in hazardous and extreme ambient temperature locations.
Air motors differ in many ways from other power sources. These unique operating characteristics must be considered when selecting an air motor for a particular job. It is easy to change the horsepower and speed of an air motor by throttling the air inlet. Therefore, the best rule of thumb for selecting an air motor is to choose one that will provide the horsepower and torque needed using only two-thirds (2 /3) of the line pressure available. The full airline pressure will then be available for overloads and starting.
Most of the Gast Air Motors and some of the Gast Gear Motors in this catalog meet the requirements of the EC directive 94/9EC (ATEX 100a). They may be used in zones 1 and 2 where explosive atmospheres of gas or dust are likely to occur. These are marked with II 2 G D c T4 in the catalog and on the product. This indicates the air motor is Group II, Category 2, Gas and Dust Atmospheres, and a maximum surface temperature of 275 °F/135 °C. Check that the product driven by the air motor meets the ATEX directive.
