Food Safe Motors Maximize Cleanability


A next generation food safe stainless steel motor platform for extreme environments in the food & beverage industry is the Baldor-Reliance Food Safe motors. They are designed with smooth contours and advanced sealing, exceed IP69K for water to maximize motor life in high pressure, sanitary cleaning environments.


The high ingress protection rated enclosures offer fully encapsulated windings, effectively sealing the motor inside and out. Combined with a laser marked nameplate and a footless mounting design, crevices are kept to a minimum and allows the motor to withstand clean-in-place procedures.


Worker safety is another important component in our food safe stainless steel motor design. A 3 piece-rotatable conduit box allows workers easier access to route incoming power supply. Color-coded leads also help to quickly, and correctly tie the motor into the electrical system, using the waterproof heat shrink connectors. On larger frame sizes, lift lugs are fully welded to the frame to easily set the motor in place before attaching to the driven equipment.


The platform spans single and three phase ratings, making us the first motor manufacturer to produce and sell a stainless steel, IP69K rated single phase motor. Three phase ratings meet NEMA Premium efficiency levels and available in totally enclosed, non-vented enclosures in the power range of 1/2 - 3 HP. Totally enclosed, fan cooled designs are available in power range of 1/2 - 15 HP. They are available in 2, 4 & 6 pole versions for 230/460V at 60 Hz.


AEGIS Shaft Grounding Rings have been made standard equipment on the Baldor-Reliance Food Safe line of motors.
