Dustproof Motor locks out contamination.

Abrasive Dustproof Series, sealed with built-in o-rings, has air fittings for pressurization up to 15 psi. Shaft slinger prevents abrasive dust from attacking shaft seal material, which in turn prevents dust from entering bearing. Motor is available in standard 23, 34, 42 and 65 frame sizes. Applications include industrial operations that use, produce or process powdered materials such as fiber...

Empire Magnetics' Cryogenic Motors Pass Six-Month Continuous Duty Use Test at Cryogenic Temperatures

ROHNERT PARK, CA - Empire Magnetics cryogenic motors have been tested by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for continuous duty at cryogenic temperatures. The testing conditions were in one atmosphere nitrogen at approximately 110 K (-163 deg C). The motors operated nearly continuously at 60 RPM - about the speed that JPL expects the aerobot/blimp propeller motors to operate at on an actual...
