Show(ering) keeps going on

Still working after twenty-four shows spread over 12 years, during which it was sprayed continuously with water, a ‘Marlin’ stainless-steel motor from Lafert has demonstrated its durability and proven its IP69/66K qualities. It has outlasted two pumps that delivered water to the shower head spraying the motor and two acrylic tanks used to house the Marlin working demonstration (… and the demise of numerous rubber ducks!).

This proven durability is enhanced by the fact the water employed during the shows is chlorinated to meet exhibition organisers’ hygiene requirements. Although the Marlin motor was unaffected by the aggressive chlorine it did contribute to the failure of the two pumps.

According to Brian Bannister, motor specialist for Lafert, the motor operated properly on start-up for each show despite having been merely stored in the company’s warehouse between shows.
