Extreme Duck<sup>&reg;</sup> Ultra Motor Solution

Challenge

Food processing plants are very difficult environments for motors due to the daily cleaning and sanitizing of equipment, which can burn out due to corrosive [cleaning] chemicals and high-pressure sprays. Plant downtime emergencies divert limited maintenance personnel and disrupt production at the cost of thousands of dollars per hour. Standard motors in food processing plants can’t hold up to the demanding environment.

Solution

To help reduce downtime because of burned out motors, a leading pork processing plants installed the stainless steel Extreme Duck® Ultra washdown motors. Key factors in the selection of the Extreme Duck Ultra motor included application specificity, longevity and maintenance. The pork processor is so pleased with the motors’ performance and reliability they are installing them in all of their U.S. facilities.
