Sun Star Type “D” Water-Filled Motors

The Sun Star Type “D” motor is a water-filled, high efficiency, submersible motor. All exposed metal components are 316 series stainless steel. The motor is completely sealed and employs an internal pressure balancing system. The mounted flange dimensions ensure a standard fit to most pump manufacturers. The Type “D” motor is designed for “across-the-line” and reduced voltage starting. It is also approved for operation with Variable Frequency Drives (VFD).


Type “D” motors are an engineered product and can be custom designed to fit most applications.



All welding, machining, component fabrication, winding, assembly, electrical and run testing accomplished in house.
