Efficient waste removal and material breakdown require specialised equipment for machinery operating under consistent load constraints. 

For waste management and recycling sectors, equipment such as shredders that operate at high and low speeds, are essential to shred waste based on its size and textural variability. 

The importance of high-quality motors and drives in these machines is paramount to achieving dependable results across waste management and removal zones. TECO provides a state-of-the-art solution in motors and drives performance technology. 

TECO Te3 motors are high-quality, Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled (TEFC), Squirrel Cage Induction motors designed, manufactured, and tested to the latest International and Australian Standards, offering high efficiency and reliability. 

With a variety of electrical design standards and features, TECO Te3 Motors provide a comprehensive solution for heavy machinery operations. 

They can operate at altitudes up to 1000 meters above sea level, allowing for extensive coverage areas for equipment.   

TECO Te3 motors are designed to operate in ambient conditions of -20°C to +40°C as standard. They have a maximum continuous duty rating of S1 to IEC/A560034-1 and are designed for operation on a 380-415 Volt 3 phase 50 Hz supply and are also suitable for a 440-480 Volt 3 phase 60 Hz supply.  

All motors meet exceed the Minimum Efficiency level requirements of the Australian/New Zealand MEPS and IEC/AS60034-30-1 Standard where applicable. 

TECO Te3 Motors offer numerous mechanical benefits for those seeking immediate results in power and machine leverage. These motors can be configured with TECO Variable Speed Drives (VSD) which available with single-phase input, 3 phase output, making them a versatile tool for working at high and low speeds. TECO Te3 motors are suitable for VSD duty, subject to torque and speed limitations depending on the load characteristics and correct installation of motor and drive. The motors are available in various sizes with single or multi-speed drives, and they have been tested in conjunction with TECO VSDs. 

The TECO Te3 Motors are constructed from high-quality steel, which enhances the overall mechanical quality and consistency of waste and recycling machinery. In Australia, the effective breakdown of waste and recycling is crucial to achieving consistent results for waste sites and plants.
