Choosing the Right Electric Motor

In any industry, selecting the right electric motor is important. In the food processing business, the right selection becomes critical. It is essential that a company make the right choice, not only for ensuring the long life of the processing equipment, or for providing viable and effective motive power but also for a more important reason – food safety. It is vital the motor does introduce contaminants into production.

Electric Motors for the Food Industry

The food industry in states such as Texas can be hard on its equipment. It demands not only efficiency but also sterility. Moreover, the toll on machinery, including electric motors can be heavy. Industrial electric motors operate in a harsh and demanding working environment. They must:

* Be able to withstand high and/or low temperatures

* Tolerate pressure washing

* Be easy to install and maintain

* Not gather food particles in crevices or other parts potentially creating hazardous risks

The motors must also meet all State and Federal requirements for safe food processing. Baldor electric motors satisfy such requirements and more.
