Are you focusing on the right design features? When you consider the cost and disruption of a recall, you need to be certain that every washdown is effectively removing pathogens—without also prematurely killing off your motors. But do you know how to identify a motor that can handle daily direct washdowns without damage? One that gives pathogens no place to hide? Not all “hygienic” motors are the same, so let’s take a closer look.

You'll learn:

  • Why motor covers and bags are costly, ineffective and unnecessary
  • Where motors harbor bacteria, and how truly hygienic design eliminates these features
  • Why direct washdown can cause motor failure and how pressure equalization solves this problem
  • How to integrate truly hygienic motors in new, updated and retrofitted machines
