In the demanding food and beverage environment, the ability to withstand and perform reliably under routine washdown conditions is critical. So how do you ensure the motors and gearboxes you choose will be long lasting in these environments?
This webinar will look at a simple method to specify products that can handle the toughest washdown conditions. We will detail the IP69K designation and the impact this has on the selection of motors and gearboxes for food and beverage applications.
Note: This webinar will remain available in archive on-demand for one year from the original air date of February 24th, 2016.
