Baldor Electric Company: Motors for sanitary washdowns
Designed for humid and moist environments in the food and beverage industry, Baldor’s Super White Washdown Duty line of motors features an autophoretic autodeposition exterior surface preparation method that makes the white epoxy finish coat of these motors 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. The 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. Neoprene rubber gaskets on the conduit box ensure a tight, waterproof seal.
A maintenance-friendly drain design, with four easy to remove condensation drain plugs, allows thorough drainage regardless of the motor’s mounting position. The distinctive black color of the drain plugs makes them easy to recognize and their shape makes them easy to remove. A notched fan cover allows easy access to condensate drain plugs without removing the fan cover. The motors are NEMA Premium efficient and are available from 1 to 20 HP, 56C through 256TC.
