Stainless Steel Motors

When the application requires caustic cleaning solutions and sanitizing washdowns which will compromise the surface of a standard washdown motor, stainless steel motors are the answer.

Minimize your risk of safety violations 

Designed for harsh food processing environments; impervious to rust and deterioration caused by caustic sanitizing.
Stainless steel motors utilize corrosion resistant materials across all components minimizing your risk of potential violations for inadequate equipment.
