Motors make gains in energy efficiency, process reliability | ProFood World

Motors make gains in energy efficiency, process reliability | ProFood World | Motors, Drives, and PLCs in Automation | Scoop.it
Energy makes up 80 percent of the cost of owning and operating a motor over its lifespan. That’s why motor makers have spent decades trying to build ever more energy-efficient designs. But with standard motors already achieving 96.7 percent efficiency, current technology might be reaching its limits. Some motor manufacturers say it’s impractical to continue making significant design investments in motors if the resulting price increases will outweigh any small efficiency gains. Others are turning to tools, both old and new, that can give motors a helping hand.

ABB launches Baldor-Reliance® food safe stainless steel motors

ABB launches Baldor-Reliance® food safe stainless steel motors | Motors, Drives, and PLCs in Automation | Scoop.it
ABB offers a complete line of food safe stainless steel NEMA motors to ensure effective cleaning in harsh environments

Food production equipment that can be properly sanitized is critical both to the health of consumers and the reputation of a company. Producers are facing tighter regulations and stiffer penalties to remain compliant. ABB’s next generation of motors for the food and beverage industry is now available to ensure that equipment is clean and that food is safe.

Baldor-Reliance food safe motors, designed with smooth contours and advanced sealing, exceed IP69K for washdown conditions to maximize motor life in high pressure, sanitary cleaning environments. The product line covers single to three phase ratings in foot-mounted and footless configurations. This provides OEMs and end users greater flexibility to choose the right product for their equipment and applications. Foot-mounted designs meet NEMA standard mounting dimensions with continuously welded independent feet allowing easier access and clearance around the entire motor for proper cleaning procedures.

“We have extensive experience in working with customers and their stainless steel motors to understand their needs. Based on this, we determined that cleanability is a significant priority in food production equipment,” said David Steen, Product Manager for Definite Purpose Motors at ABB’s Robotics and Motion division. “If a motor is easier to clean, we increased the protection of food supply. It’s that simple.”

Although attention is being paid to hygiene related factors, the reliability of equipment remains essential. Unplanned downtime can have a significant impact on profitability. For assurance, windings are fully encapsulated and leads are potted inside a high ingress protection rated enclosure to effectively seal the motor inside and out. A unique external output seal arrangement provides multiple layers of protection from ingress of foreign material, helping the motors withstand high temperature and high pressure sprays better.

With tightening regulations and stiffer penalties, taking a proactive approach to selecting and installing products designed around sanitary equipment principles will maximize productivity and reduce overall cost of ownership.

ABB (ABBN: SIX Swiss Ex) is a pioneering technology leader in electrification products, robotics and motion, industrial automation and power grids, serving customers in utilities, industry and transport & infrastructure globally. Continuing a history of innovation spanning more than 130 years, ABB today is writing the future of industrial digitalization and driving the Energy and Fourth Industrial Revolutions. As title partner of Formula E, the fully electric international FIA motorsport class, ABB is pushing the boundaries of e-mobility to contribute to a sustainable future. ABB operates in more than 100 countries with about 136,000 employees. www.abb.com
