Bauer Gear Motor Stainless Steel HiflexDRIVEs are Specially Designed for Washdown Applications

The stainless steel HiflexDRIVE design eliminates hygiene risks due to a highly suitable and sustainable design in areas that require routine intensive cleaning. The motor does not require a cooling fan or ribs, allowing for a completely smooth outer casing with a sealed non-drive end. This eliminates any dirt or particle traps on the motor casing and also prevents re-contamination of the processing environment caused by air movement from a fan.

All geared motors are IP67/IP69K certified for high pressure, high temp washdown applications. The AISI 316-grade (CF8) stainless steel drives can withstand the commonly used cleaning solutions and disinfectants without affecting performance.

Choose from 3 gearbox sizes and 7 possible motor designs to meet your specific application requirements.

  • AISI 316-grade (CF8) stainless gearbox and motor housing
  • IP67/IP69K certified; CIP (Clean-In-Place) compatible; Washdown-Ready
  • Smooth, non-ventilated motor for optimum hygenic design
  • 316L stainless output shaft (solid or hollow)
  • Face mounting standard; other options available
  • Inverter-duty asynchronous motor or permanent magnet motor for highest operating efficiencies
  • Stainless watertight cable connection for motor power
  • Chemical-resistant and watertight cable optionally available
  • Thermistor temperature safeguard
  • Fully-encapsulated brakes or encoders are available
