Force Control Industries (Fairfield, OH) offers a full lineup of motor brakes, clutches and clutch-brakes in washdown configurations for food, chemical and pharmaceutical processing applications. MagnaShear and Posistop motor brakes and Posidyne clutches and clutch-brakes are totally enclosed with heavy duty, cast housing which offers additional protection against moisture, water, saltwater, caustic spray and chemicals. Additionally:
- Nickel-plated housings and shafts provide resistance to corrosion, and external stainless steel external hardware, shaft 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 unique stainless-steel leafing pigment, protects the housing from common moisture and chemical agents, as well as ultraviolet rays, chemicals, oils, alkalis, food acids, water immersion, abrasion and high-pressure wash down.
- This protective washdown package is ideal for aggressive environments found in food and chemical processing facilities, meat packing plants, bottling plants and more.
