Building or using machines that must withstand daily wash-downs?
Designing industrial equipment that produces thousands of pounds of food daily and is thoroughly washed to a microbiological level presents an engineering challenge.
The proper selection of electrical components is critical to the success of the machine.
We will present material on the following topics:
- Review of electrical equipment in wash-down areas
- Typical motor and gearbox failure modes
- Durability issues: discussion of IP ratings - IP66, 66K, 67, and 69K
- Ingress and effects of temperature and pressure on “sealed” systems
- Why covers are NOT the answer
- Results of food services survey conducted with 30 leading food safety and sanitation personnel
- Financial justification: sanitary design & durability retrofit
This webinar will be recorded and made available to view on demand.
