Baldor super white washdown motor designed for sanitary food and beverage industry.
Baldor Electric Company introduced its Super White Washdown Duty motor designed for humid and moist environments in the food and beverage industry. Its autophoretic autodeposition exterior surface preparation method makes the white epoxy finish coat of this motor 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 motor line 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. It also features a maintenance-friendly drain design with four condensation drain plugs. A notched fan cover allows access to condensate drain plugs without removing the fan cover. Baldor Super White Washdown Duty motors are NEMA Premium efficient and are available from 1 to 20 HP, 56C through 256C.
