White Washdown Motors

View in Online Catalog
Baldor-Reliance white washdown motors have been the workhorse of the food industry for over 30 years, delivering reliability and energy cost savings. These motors are designed for wet, humid environments that see splashing and light washdown.
Minimizing corrosion

Corrosion is a significant issue in the food and beverage industry and that is why we continually improve our designs to ensure corrosion is minimized.
• Stainless steel hardware and shaft extension
• Two-part epoxy finish that is five times more resistant to corrosion and chipping than standard paint
Sealed frame

Neoprene gaskets, lip and v-ring seals keep moisture from entering the internals of the motor. As the motor heats up and cools down, condensation can build up. To relieve this condensation, maintenance friendly drain holes and plugs can be removed.
