Bodine Electric introduces six new type 56R1-50JW/H stainless steel hollow shaft gearmotors. These new geared motors combine a stainless-steel AC inverter-duty, 230/460 VAC motor with a stainless-steel hollow shaft gearhead. When used with an AC inverter (VFD) control, these gearmotors deliver variable speed and maintenance free operation over a wide speed range. Ideal for equipment that is subject to intensive cleaning, these new gearmotors also meet EU hygienic standards for food machinery. They are suitable for use in the food and beverage industry, pharmaceutical industry, and in permanently wet environments. 

Built for Tough Environments

Designed to withstand constant exposure to high-pressure washdowns, Bodine’s new 56R1-50JW/H gearmotors feature high-grade, corrosion resistant stainless-steel housings and are fully watertight. The gearmotor’s smooth surface allows thorough and efficient cleaning, reducing the possibility of bacteria growth. The totally enclosed, non-ventilated (TENV) motor prevents airborne re-contamination caused by air movement from a cooling fan. The large, water-tight junction box is in the 12 o’clock position for easy access. The gearmotors meet IP-69K standards. Driven by a maintenance-free ½ HP AC inverter-duty 3 phase motor (230/460VAC), the gearmotors achieve up to 72 Nm torque and speeds from 29 to 176 rpm. The sealed gearmotor is available with gear ratios from 10:1 to 60:1, and it utilizes food-grade lubricant.

Compact Design

The new type 50JW/H hollow shaft gearmotors optimize mounting space, simplify installation, and reduce the number of required parts. They can be connected directly to the driven load eliminating expensive shaft couplings and mounting hardware that can be bulky and present alignment issues. These hollow shaft gearmotors offer left- or right-hand face mounts for maximum application flexibility. Accessories including a stainless-steel torque arm kit, a stainless-steel mounting flange kit, and single-extension and double-extension, 1-inch diameter stainless steel shaft kits are offered by Bodine. Also a stainless-steel shaft cover kit for the non-extension shaft side of the gearhead is available.
