May 13, 2013

Baldor washdown motorBaldor Electric Co.'s new Super White Washdown Duty motor is designed for humid and moist environments in the food and beverage industry where motors receive sanitary washdowns on a regular basis. The autophoretic® autodeposition exterior surface preparation method makes the white epoxy finish coat of this motor five times more resistant to corrosion and chipping than previous methods. The shaft, hardware and nameplate are all 300 series stainless steel, to prevent rust and corrosion. This new line of motors also 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.
