The motor targets areas subject to frequent high-pressure wash down such as those found in food-processing and pharmaceutical plants. Epoxy-encapsulated windings and conduit box leads prevent moisture infiltration into the motor windings. A hydrophobic-aspiration system eliminates condensation moisture in the motor. The motors come in sizes from 1/2 to 2 hp and through 10 hp by year's end.
