Washdown Motors



LEESON® Washguard® motors deliver something most washdown duty motors can’t — the confidence to know your applications will be up and running no matter what you throw at them. Whether you need a motor that handles an occasional splash or a solution that handles continuous washdown 24/7, Regal’s broad range of LEESON washdown motors can take it.

Choose a solution that’s USDA approved, FDA approved, BISSC certified, or a motor with an IP69 rated enclosure protection — to name just a few. If you’re looking for answers to tough application issues, look to LEESON motors.

Extreme Duck® Ultra Motors

The Extreme Duck® Ultra washdown duty motor is Regal’s revolutionary designed stainless-steel motor featuring our full body epoxy encapsulation system. Our patented solutions ensure greater reliability and uptime by providing maximum protection in the most demanding and harshest washdown environments.

The Washguard® II motors are well suited for the demanding environments of food processing areas requiring frequent sanitation using high pressure cleaning with concentrated caustic solutions, areas of high humidity, and in chemical environments.

Beef Processing

Prevent Bacterial Buildup in Food Processing

With full stainless steel construction, these washdown motors handle high pressure spray and caustic chemical washdown environments. To keep food processing byproducts and fluids from being harbored on the motor, seams have been minimized, shafts fully sealed, and a new mounting design helps prevent the opportunity for bacterial build-up.

Preventing rust and corrosion in washdown environments is a top priority in the food and beverage industries. Even a small trace of rust or corrosion is enough to shut down a line causing unwanted downtime and possibly resulting in regulatory fines. In order to prevent rust and corrosion, take time to review the washdown chemicals used in your facility and evaluate the motors exposure to washdown procedures. Choose a finish that supports the level of protection required for that application.
