A range of IEC food-safe stainless-steel motors withstands high-pressure cleaning, maintaining hygiene standards while reducing downtime. The motors have an IP69 water-protection rating. Encapsulated winding allows the motors to last much longer than general-purpose products in tough washdown conditions. Motor external surfaces are self-draining, with no crevices where particles can collect. The markings are laser etched onto the frame, avoiding channels and ridges where contaminants could accumulate. The units also eliminate the need for motor shrouds, which can harbor food particles and allow bacteria to breed.
