Bison Gear Engineering Corp., a leader in the power transmission industry, now offers a higher horsepower range Stainless Steel washdown motor. The motor’s clean and smooth Stainless Steel surface reduces contamination points for bacterial growth, while its ingress protection rating of IP69K keeps it completely sealed to all outside elements.
The Stainless Steel 230/460 volt three phase washdown motors fill a market need for higher horsepower options in food processing, with a horsepower range of 1/6 HP to 2 HP. This new product is ideal for food and pharmaceutical uses, given the high ingress protection, suitability for harsh environments, and the use of Viton Oil seals and O-Rings that withstand high-pressure sanitary washdown in food zones.
This higher horsepower product is an IE3 premium efficiency class motor. Additionally, the motor maintains a low surface temperature thanks to its accurate electromagnet design. The Stainless Steel washdown motors are conveniently compatible with Bison Stainless Steel washdown IHP gearboxes and suitable for inverter duty operation thanks to low-loss laminations, vacuum impregnation of windings, and inverter duty magnet wires.
