Motor drives, which act exactly like an accelerator pedal that speeds up or slows down a vehicle in exact proportion to driving conditions, are the unsung heroes of the energy world.
When thinking of a food manufacturing facility, many people may envision a lockdown area in which all personnel must wear full-body decontamination suits and where every internal surface of the facility must glow from the sheen of stainless steel. While this may be somewhat common for parts of a plant, a range of environments allow for different grades of motors, from general purpose to washdown, which drive many pumping applications.
The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and a coalition of energy advocates submitted a petition to the Department of Energy to increase efficiency in industrial electric motors not covered under the latest small motor rule. A Final Rule was issued in March, 2014 which will broaden the scope of coverage left behind from the Energy Independence & Security Act (EISA) of 2007. The Integral Horsepower Rule will go into effect June 1, 2016 and supersede the EISA 2007 laws.
Over the past few years, a common practice in the Food and Beverage Industry is to evaluate system components to improve reliability, productivity and food safety in harsh sanitation environments. Washdown motors and bearings are just two products where selecting the right feature set provides extended life and better performance in the harsh environments typical to the industry.

The battle against corrosion is challenging, and some industries are more sensitive to it than others. Avoidance and prevention are particularly important in food, beverage, and medical processing applications where damage from corrosive invasion is costly.
Motor manufacturers routinely answer questions about the differences between submersible and immersible motors and the applications best served by each design. While end users ultimately decide which motor best fits their need, this article explains how the designs differ and provides information that will help end users make informed decisions.
The U.S. efficiency regulations for industrial electric motors have been in place since October 1997 when the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (EPAct 92) set minimum efficiency levels for 1- through 200-horsepower (HP), general purpose three-phase motors.
A basic electrical safety rule is that water and electricity do not mix. However, alternating current (AC) induction motors must function in or under water to operate pumps, mixers and aerators in industrial water and wastewater applications. Submersible motors must be specially designed and manufactured to prevent water from contacting any part of the electrical circuit while providing long life in these harsh applications.
