AKMH™ Stainless Steel Washdown Motor Selection Guide

Designed for Fast Cleaning and Increased Uptime. The AKMH stainless steel motor is designed to meet the standards for IP69K and EHEDG and is built with FDA approved, food-grade materials. The careful elimination of flat surfaces, cracks, and crevices prevents the buildup of foreign material and bacteria. The AKMH housing and cable can endure daily wash-downs with high pressure, high temperature, and caustic chemicals. The robust design means that guards and covers are not required to protect the motor from harsh cleaning regimens. These AKMH features constitute quicker cleaning, more reliable machine performance and the increase of OEE for the entire manufacturing line.
