Washdown Motors

Testing

Built for the toughest environments

The Test

Bluffton Motor Works has created a unique testing environment, which lab engineers have dubbed the 'torture chamber', to replicate worst case scenarios for its washdown motors.

  • High pressure chemical sprays, hot water and flooding
  • One cycle takes three hours, simulates one day of operating conditions
    - 6 high pressure spay nozzles
    - Spray chemicals at 1500 psi, 140 – 150˚F
    - Hot chemicals 20% acid/20% alkaline
    - Hot water 140˚ – 150˚F
    - Flood with 50˚F water for twenty minutes, over a three hour cycle

Test Results

  • HydroDuty, HydroWash, and Picker Plus Motors endured on average 30 times as many cycles than the top 8 competitors
  • HydroDuty completed 1767 cycles compared to the next best competitor at 177 cycles
  • By creating the torture chamber for testing, Bluffton has been able to test all advancements in a true working environment to assure that their motors are the best on the market.

More Tests, More Motor Torture

Bluffton Motor works has also created a test in which a HydroDuty Motor was submerged into a 55 gallon drum. The motor runs for three hours, then shuts down for thirty minutes. The cycle is repeated, 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

The Reason for the Test

The maintenance manager at a poultry processing plant had experienced motor failure repeatedly, because production lines are washed down several times a day with high pressure hoses. He asked Bluffton Motor Works to prove to him that their washdown motor really could survive any environment.

They submerged one of their HydroDuty motors in an aquarium at the plant's maintenance shop. Ninety days later, the motor was still running, so the maintenance manager installed it on one of the worst applications in the plant. Four years later, that same motor was still running that same conveyor.
