All stainless steel motors and drives

February 20, 2006

Stainless steel motors, speed reducers and servo motors are now available. SSE Stainless Super-E® motors are available in 1/2 through 2 HP, will be available through 10 HP by mid-year. It features a stainless steel housing, conduit box (welded to the motor), conduit box cover, shaft, base, fan cover and slinger. This makes the motor impervious to rust and deterioration caused by frequent high-pressure caustic sanitizing. SSE Stainless Super-E motors are designed to perform longer than any other industrial electric washdown motor available today, according to the manufacturer. All-stainless brushless servo motors easily handle IP67 and 1,500 psi washdown conditions and can be used in harsh, corrosive food/liquid, high hygiene environments and have UL, CSA, CE and BISSC approvals. They are available in standard and low inertia models to provide for ideal inertial matching to machines. All stainless steel speed reducers are easy to clean and sanitize, minimizing bacterial contamination. Stainless steel also provides the highest protection for pharmaceutical and chemical processing applications where harsh chemicals and cleaning solutions can be extremely corrosive to aluminum, cast iron, and other materials. These all stainless steel reducers are available from stock with solid or hollow bore output shafts in three frame sizes through 5 horsepower.
