IP69K antibacterial motors offer a valid alternative

03 September 2018

It has been known since ancient time that silver has antibacterial properties, for example to heal wounds and purify water.

This new SILVER TREATMENT created for aluminium alloy motors, gives the motors these antibacterial properties and as such offers a valid alternative to stainless steel motors or indeed other expensive treatments. This makes these motors perfect the food and pharmaceutical industries where a clean and aseptic environment is needed.

These motors also have interesting mechanical and electrical characteristics: -

• Resistance to corrosive agents: bringing the motors to the same level as stainless steel but with cleaning treatment with pH = 10.
• Better thermal and electrical conductivity: 35 percent more heat dissipation than untreated aluminium and 10 times more the stainless steel
• Anti-mould & germicide properties: making these motors more suitable than stainless steel for aseptic environments
• High resistance to wear
• Hard finish
• Germicide properties: against the bacteria dangerous to the human organism
• Lower weight than stainless steel: because aluminium is 1/3 weight of stainless steel 
• Non-magnetic: therefore, capable of resisting high voltages without producing large magnetic fields if given high voltages.
• Higher motor efficiency: the greater heat dissipation keeps the motor cooler and consequently the lower intrinsic resistance keeps the motors efficiency constant. All the motors are IE4 premium efficiency. 
• Lower price: because we avoid the high cost of stainless steel and its processing costs.
