Washdown Treatment

In todays food processing environments the requirement to wash down the facility at the end of each day is unprecedented. Equipment such as electric motors are power washed under enormous pressure and in many cases these motors were never designed to withstand this pressure. The result is water entering into the motor creating premature bearing failure and shorting out the winding completely. Although there are wash down motors available for this type of environment replacing existing motors with stainless steel models can be extremely expensive. As an alternative Electric Repair & Machine can perform a wash down treatment, sealing the end bell housings and making existing motors more resistant to water penetration. This custom sealing of the motor will increase the motors ability to withstand the wash down procedures and reduce premature failure. If your environment is subject to this type of cleaning procedure ask about adding wash down treatment to your next overhaul.
