Stainless steel air motors for food and pharmaceutical processes
13 August 2010
A new range of stainless steel air motors from Parker Hannifin provides a hygienic, efficient and cost effective alternative to conventional ac and dc powered motors in food grade, medical and chemical applications, and particularly in any any application where there is a risk of corrosion. The P1V-S series air motors are compact, lightweight and capable of providing an exceptionally long operating life. Air motor and planetary gear are built into a polished stainless steel housing, which is sealed by a fluor-rubber O-ring. Cleanliness is further enhanced by the motor's cylindrical shape, which ensures there are no pockets in which dirt or bacteria can accumulate.
The P1V-S series will operate intermittently and without need for lubrication, meaning that no particles of lubricant can escape with the exhaust air. The planetary gear is lubricated with a USDA-H1 standard grease, which is approved for use in food grade applications.
The speed of the motor is easily adjusted using standard pneumatic flow control valves or pressure regulators located in the air inlets.
