Air motor is fully submersible

Air motor is fully submersible Although it is not impossible to render an electric or hydraulic motor suitable for complete submersion in water it is costly, complicated and time-consuming. Nevertheless in the marine engineering and process industries there is a real need for such drives and for these applications Huco Dynatork now has the complete answer. Building on the inherent benefits of its basic air motor design that was specifically designed for operation in harsh and hazardous environments, the company has developed a fully submersible range. These acetyl bodied models with stainless steel shafts and bearings are available in two sizes and specials can be made to order. Ideal for any motion control application underwater such as opening a valve or for propelling a stirring mechanism for example, the motor is also a good choice for washdown environments and flood-risk areas. The motor can withstand aggressive chemicals, high pressure hosing and can operate fully submerged. In common with the standard range, these new submersible motors excel in constant start/stop applications under load and can be applied to give similar characteristics to those of a stepper motor. Reverse operation is achieved by using five-port control valves giving near instant response even under load.
