Washdown motorThe Super washdown motor is designed for humid and moist environments in food and beverage plants. The white epoxy finish is five times more resistant to corrosion and chipping, the company says, and the shaft, hardware and nameplate are all 300 series stainless steel to prevent rust and corrosion. The system includes labyrinth seals on each end of the motor, enhanced sealing around the lead exit, same size bearings on each end and a moisture resistant insulation system. Neoprene rubber gaskets on the conduit box ensure a tight, waterproof seal. Four easy-to-remove condensation drain plugs allow thorough drainage regardless of the motor's mounting position.
