Shop Motor Base Plates

A motor base plate is a sturdy platform that is welded directly onto the top of a reservoir, skid, or porch in certain types of 'L' shaped tanks. It's designed to accommodate various sizes of NEMA motors, providing a stable and elevated surface for mounting the motor securely. By adding this base plate, it allows for additional height for the motor, giving engineers more flexibility in designing the system and arranging plumbing connections. This component is essential for ensuring proper motor placement and efficient operation of machinery, particularly in industrial settings where precise alignment and space optimization are crucial.
