Waterproof stainless steel motors for washdown environments
28 August 2012
Regal has added the Leeson Extreme Duck range of stainless steel washdown motors to its portfolio. In the UK they are available through distributor Motovario of Droitwich.
Extreme Duck stainless steel motors feature an encapsulated construction, designed to withstand severe washdown and sanitisation regimes.
Advanced thermal management has dispensed with the traditional array of cooling fins, leaving a smooth clean outer surface free of potential dirt and bacteria traps.
The design team has also completely eliminated the need for through-bolts and has developed a screw-on conduit box cover to further reduce the potential for trapping contaminants. For a further line of defence, O-ring sealed openings are provided on the conduit box covers and rotor/cartridge covers. Even the nameplate is laser-etched to avoid possible bacteria traps.
Other features include a Protech bearing isolator used for the output shaft seal and a rigid cast base to make Extreme Duck motors rugged enough for the most demanding applications. All Extreme Duck motors are supplied with high performance inverter rated insulation as standard to provide extra protection and long life whether used in a switched environment or inverter driven. Enclosure protection is IP65.
Extreme Duck meets or exceeds (IE2) efficiency standards, and covers 3-phase, 208-230/460V requirements at a 0.25 to 2kW power rating, with other variants from the range such as White Duck and Premium Stainless Duck available for higher power ratings and other IEC frame sizes, including a brake motor version. The base can be C-face or C-face less.
