HaydonKerk Motion Solutions introduces its Haydon™ specialty Clean Motor product. Designed for contamination sensitive applications, cleanroom environments, and environments within systems under high vacuum, HaydonKerk’s Clean Motors are designed to limit contaminants and out gassing in vacuum environments. Provided that the motor operates below its rated maximum operating temperature, Haydon™ Clean Motors will survive in a vacuum down to 10-8 Torr.
To ensure the minimum amount of out gas in a vacuum environment, the Clean Motor product undergoes special handling and uses parts fabricated in a proprietary process. Clean Motors are constructed of non-volatile materials, thoroughly cleaned using ultrasonic equipment, and then vacuum-baked at high temperature to extract contaminants. In addition to Teflon® wires and high temperature windings, Haydon™ Clean Motors contain stainless steel bearings with special lubrication. Out gassing results from a lack of motor cleanliness, often created by contaminants present during the manufacturing process and even the slightest contact with a human hand. The Haydon™ Clean Motor products are processed to consider all possible contamination sources and are then sealed in double bags for handling under clean-room protocols.
