Stainless steel electric motors

  • img


Lovato provides stainless steel electric motors up to 7.5 KW, , which can be installed in applications subject to one or more corrosive agents in the environment, and by design are  easy to clean (easy cleaning); consequently, occasional or continuous contact between the finished product and Lovato's stainless steel electric motors is no longer a problem.
All external components, including the shaft, are made of AISI 304 (corrosion resistant) stainless steel.


Where Hygiene Counts

Unlike traditional electric motors, LOVATO stainless steel electric motors do not have cooling fins to prevent material deposits, they are not varnished to prevent peeling and contamination of the final product (have no flaking paint); technical data is engraved directly on the housing to eliminate an area of bacterial proliferation that a normal plate would certainly create (as well as the risk of rivets coming off).

The high level of IP protection and other special technical specifications of Lovato stainless steel electric motors allows high pressure washing (even with high temperature water and/or with the addition of harsh detergents) in all environments subject to on-site cleaning to ensure the long-term efficiency of the motor (washdown tolerant).
