Baldor-051313-body.jpgThe new Super White Washdown Duty motor is designed for humid and moist environments in the food and beverage industry where motors receive sanitary washdowns on a regular basis. The 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, said the manufacturer. The shaft, hardware, and nameplate are all 300 series stainless steel to prevent rust and corrosion. This new line of motors 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. The company designed the motor with a maintenance-friendly drain with four easy to remove condensation drain plugs to allow for thorough drainage regardless of the motor’s mounting position. The distinctive black color of the drain plugs makes them easy to recognize and their shape makes them easy to remove. A notched fan cover allows easy 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 HP to 20 HP, and 56C through 256TC.
