Cool running & super-clean
23 December 2014
Marathon Electric has enhanced its ranges of stainless steel, washdown heavy-duty motors for applications requiring clean or hygienic facilities, such as food processing.
Made from top quality stainless steel, the motors are of IEC construction so can be easily swapped with existing cast iron motors, and are protected to IP66. They are designed for exceptional resistance against water penetration, with three layers of defence – a shaft seal, a long ingress path and an internal slinger mechanism.
The outer surface of the motors is clean-lined, to avoid crevices and corners where dirt or grease could collect and thereby compromise cleanliness.
