HaydonKerk Motion Solutions introduces its Haydon‚â„¢ specialty Clean Motor product. Designed for contamination sensitive applications, cleanroom environments, and environments within systems under high vacuum, HaydonKerk‚â€™s Clean Motors are designed to limit contaminants and out gassing in vacuum environments. Provided that the motor operates below its rated maximum operating temperature, Haydon‚â„¢ Clean Motors will survive in a vacuum down to 10-8 Torr.
To ensure the minimum amount of out gas in a vacuum environment, the Clean Motor product undergoes special handling and uses parts fabricated in a proprietary process. Clean Motors are constructed of non-volatile materials, thoroughly cleaned using ultrasonic equipment, and then vacuum-baked at high temperature to extract contaminants. In addition to Teflon‚Â® wires and high temperature windings, Haydon‚â„¢ Clean Motors contain stainless steel bearings with special lubrication. Out gassing results from a lack of motor cleanliness, often created by contaminants present during the manufacturing process and even the slightest contact with a human hand. The Haydon‚â„¢ Clean Motor products are processed to consider all possible contamination sources and are then sealed in double bags for handling under clean-room protocols.
