A synchronous motor for washdown and washdown food: an economic alternative to stainless steel

AKM Washdown series synchronous motors are a practical and cost-effective alternative to motors that employ high grade stainless steel housings. With IP67 rated PTFE sealing, a special two-component epoxy coating and stainless steel output shafts these synchronous motors ensure complete resistance to corrosive chemicals including highly alkaline or acidic cleaning products. The special Washdown Food coating fulfils the requirements according to 21 CFR 175.300 of the US FDA Regulations. For use in food, beverage and packaging industries which are subject to the strict hygienic regulations, a food-grade model is also available that additionally features food-safe lubrication and materials. With the performance characteristics of the AKM permanent magnet motor range. this washdown synchronous motor is available in frame sizes 2 through 6, with several standard stack-lengths with a wide choice of winding, feedback and connection options.
