Motors for washdown applications

A line of stainless-steel motors for wash-down applications are totally enclosed and come in seven sizes ranging from 0.5 to 3 hp in fan-cooled and nonventilated models. The motors’ feature a 300 Series stainless-steel housing, end bells, output shaft, and conduit box. Internally locked bearings eliminate unwanted axial movement. The three-phase, 230/460-Vac, 60-Hz (50-Hz) motors feature double-lip shaft seals, a rubber gasket seal on the conduit cover, O-rings between end bells and housing, and a smooth exterior with no mounting feet.
