Isomag bearing isolators solve water contamination on heavy wash-down electric motors in food processing plants

December 10, 2016


Stainless Motors, Inc. designed an innovative and completely sanitary, wash-down tolerant electric motor manufactured entirely of Stainless Steel materials of construction. Typical lip seals for bearing protection wore out quickly and allowed water ingress to contaminate the bearings limiting the life of the electric motors. After replacing the lip seals with the Isomag V8 series magnetic face bearing isolator the cycle life of the electric motors increased to meet OEM and End User maintenance reliability expectations. Unlike lip seals, Isomag bearing isolators are designed to last 20+ years and do not damage your host equipment. Isomag  bearing isolators prevent the ingress of water during daily heavy wash-down operations. Isomag bearing isolators have been specified by Stainless Motors, Inc. for over 10 ten years; utilizing over 14,000 units since 2005.
