ems april may 19 27ABB launches IEC Food Safe motors designed for easy cleaning and long life

ABB’s new Food Safe stainless steel motors for food and beverage plants can withstand high pressure cleaning, helping to maintain hygiene standards while reducing downtime.

ABB has launched a full range of IEC Food Safe motors designed for applications in the food and beverage industry that need frequent sanitation. (Read More)  The new IEC Food Safe motors are part of ABB’s Food Safe family that includes stainless steel NEMA motors, mounted ball bearings and gearing.

IEC Food Safe motors feature smooth stainless steel enclosures that are easy to clean and sanitise so customers can meet increasingly stringent hygiene standards. The motors’ enclosures have an IP69 water protection rating, while encapsulated winding enable the motors to last much longer than general purpose products in tough washdown conditions.  
The external surfaces of the motors are self-draining, with no crevices where particles can collect. The markings are laser etched onto the frame, avoiding channels and ridges where contaminants could accumulate. The motors can withstand high pressure sprays and are fully compatible with clean-in-place (CIP) methods. Food Safe motors also eliminate the need for motor shrouds, which can harbour food particles and allow bacteria to breed.
