WEG Motors designed a completely sanitary, wash-down tolerant electric motor manufactured entirely of Stainless Steel materials. Typical lip seals for bearing protection wore out quickly and allowed water ingress to contaminate the bearings limiting the life of the electric motors. This WEG Shark electric motor had trouble with water entering the bearing housing and contaminating the grease lubrication, leading to early failures.
After replacing the lip seals with the Isomag magnetic bearing seals, the life cycle of the WEG Shark electric motors increased to meet our end user maintenance reliability expectations. Unlike lip seals, Isomag magnetic bearing isolators are designed to last 20+ years and do not damage your host equipment. Isomag magnetic bearing seals prevent the ingress of water during daily heavy wash-down operations.
