These stainless steel waterproof motors are available in horsepower ranging from .5 to 20 HP, and nine frame sizes: 56, 143, 145, 182, 184, 213, 215, 254 and 256. Typical applications include food processing, chemical and drug manufacturing, machine tools, paper making and film processing.
The addition of pressure compensation devices allow the motors to be used deep sea and marine applications such as positioning control surfaces on sub-sea vehicles, actuators on submersible experiments, hydrophone arrays and hydrofoil flaps. Empire Magnetics’ stainless steel motors have been used successfully by US Naval Labs for 15+ years at depths up to 2500 feet and pressures in excess of 5,000 PSI.
Features of waterproof AC induction motors include:
- Integrated design and solution
- Highly corrosion resistant
