Stainless gear motors provide double hygienic solution

Stainless gear motors provide double hygienic solution

When food, beverage, pharmaceutical or other hygiene-critical production plants are washed down, motors are subjected to high-pressure jets of sometimes high-temperature water, or aggressive cleaning agents.

European manufactured and exceeding IP66 during external testing, the Marlin Stainless range is a proven design for CIP (Clean in Place) areas and washroom situations. A Viton double-lip seal and a second GAMMA seal fitted on the shaft are examples of the attention to detail for protection against potential ingress during washdown.

Unlike standard motors, the Marlin Stainless range has "clean lines" and no cooling fins. Designed with cleaning in mind, it has no paint to chip or flake off, no surface that will rust. Waste products can be washed away easily leaving no residue and the motor can be used with confidence in food processing areas. Even the rating plate is laser etched on the outer casing to reduce areas where bacteria can lurk.

The motor body, shaft, fan cover, gamma seal and fixings are 304 series stainless steel. This chemically resistant surface with no paint to flake off is ideal for use in hygienic applications. A range of seal options, including stainless steel, is available to suit your specific application.
