Force Control

Force Control Industries (Fairfield, OH) offers its collection of MagnaShear, Posistop, Posidyne and Positorq motor and clutch brakes in washdown configurations for food processing. The washdown option provides:

  • Additional protection from moisture, water, saltwater, caustic spray and chemicals.
  • Nickel plating protects the shafts from corrosion.
  • Stainless-steel external fasteners, clamp collars and conduit boxes afford similar protection.
  • Non-metallic elements such as breathers and sight gauges further eliminate corrosion.
  • A Steel-It Epoxy Coating System, with a stainless-steel leafing pigment, protects the housing from moisture and chemical agents, as well as ultraviolet rays, oils, alkalis, food acids, abrasion and high pressure wash down.
