Is this motor powerful enough?

21/03/2018 at 00:22

Hi Everyone,

I know this is one of those annoying questions, but I would really appreciate if someone here could tell me if this motor might be powerful enough for the shredder.

If so, would I have to run it on 460 volts, or could I get away with 230?

Thank you all so much for your help! I am happy to clarify if anything is unclear.

Zachary

You can run it with 230V or 460V, thou it is only 0.25 hp, and I think that would be to weak for the shredder.

Thanks for that information. I also found this motor which is 0.75 hp. Do you think that’s enough?

EDIT: Oh wait, that has 3300 rpm… so it’s probably out. Do you know if 0.75 hp is enough in general?

Okay, one more question: Is this motor a good option? https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-5-KW-2-HP-Single-Phase-Electric-Motor-240V-1400-RPM-1-5KW-2HP-1500-Watt-4-Pole-/320924007086#shpCntId

With a gearbox, it could be 70 rpm with 1.5kw and 2hp…

There is no gear on this motor, so you would need to make a reduction to get it down to 70 rpm.
