Motors work as good as they look
When it comes to quality and performance of motors you can’t go past stainless steel motors supplied by EQM.
The firm’s Anthony Bloxham says there’s been increased interest in the motors at food processing plants.
Anthony says EQM stainless steel motors and gearboxes are regarded as essential for hygiene in the food production industry; although they cost more in comparison to aluminium motors they have many paybacks long-term.
They lift the performance of what they’re driving, they require less maintenance and the cleaning is a lot easier as they don’t have any of the nooks and crannies of alternative options.
“They don’t harbour bacteria, are more hardwearing and can withstand humidity, moisture and corrosion having an international protection rating of IP67,” he says. “They really lift the performance of the entire production process.”
The EQM stainless range has more than 10 motor sizes from 0.18kw to 7.5kw and can be fitted with many IEC f langes and special size f langes to match SEW gearboxes.
Adding a compatible stainless steel worm gearbox, allows you to swap out existing gear drives and upgrade your plant with stainless steel technology.
