REGAL<sup>®</sup> Unveils New Design to Extreme Duck<sup>®</sup> Ultra Motor
BELOIT, WI, November 15, 2019 – Regal Beloit Corporation, a leading manufacturer of electric motors, electrical motion controls, power generation and power transmission components will participate in the International Production and Processing Expo, January 28-30, 2020 and has announced it will debut an exciting redesign to the LEESON Extreme Duck Ultra motor.
The new Extreme Duck Ultra motor design will feature a smooth stainless-steel enclosure and an improved independently welded foot mounting making it even easier to clean and sanitize than before. These exterior enhancements eliminate crevices where contaminants can collect making it an ideal motor for use in the food processing, pharmaceutical, beverage and bottling industries where strict sanitation requirements must be maintained.
The Extreme Duck Ultra motor has been extensively tested and is IP69 UL certified to resist high temperature and high pressure washdowns. Full body encapsulation – including both end bells – reduces air pockets where condensation can occur and ensures what’s outside, stays out. Points of entry for contaminants are minimized allowing drain plugs and breathers to be eliminated further reducing areas for bacteria or other contaminants to breed.
The Extreme Duck Ultra Motor has an exclusive patented Q-Car rotor design that provides a quick and easy way to replace worn bearings. With the Q-Car replacement kit, you can replace the cartridge in 4 easy steps and the ultra-tight design keeps its certification and ensures the motor remains watertight, just like the day it was installed.
Extreme Duck Ultra motors are designed for uncompromised food safety and equipment reliability.
