Bison Gear & Engineering Corp. (St. Charles, IL) announced the Bison Pull-Tight gear motor enclosure for demanding outdoor applications subjected to occasional underwater submersion.
The Pull-Tight has proven its durability in agriculture and many other environments exposed to harsh weather conditions, including flooding. This solution received U.S. Patent 10,320,259 for the design of the enclosure.
- Shell and fasteners are stainless steel and enclosed by an extruded silicone sleeve that serves as the main gasket and protects the assembly from the environment.
- The silicon withstands heat generated by the motor.
- The aluminum and powder-coated end cap provides an enclosure for the termination, with space for capacitors, magnetic contactors, relays and other components - all protected from the outdoor environment.
