Increasing electric motor performance and reliability under the demands of frequent start and stop cycles in hot and humid environments is one of the single greatest opportunities for improvement  in car wash facilities.

Electric motors are the heart of most car wash equipment, converting electrical to mechanical power, and can be a huge source of frustration and downtime upon failure.  That’s why it is imperative that car wash equipment manufacturers and facilities select new and replacement electric motors that can withstand the frequent starts and the steamy environments common to the industry.  The particularly short and frequent on-demand nature of motor cycles (start/run 2 minutes, off 4 minutes or more) within car washes can be especially challenging for motors, as the initial locked rotor amps surge at startup is naturally destructive to the motor’s insulation over time.  Choosing a motor with a good insulation system and impregnation can mitigate that damage longer, and offer a cooler running motor even in the hottest environments.  

 

At Elektrim, we understand the unique challenges car wash facilities and equipment manufacturers face to minimize electric motor downtime, while striving to improve overall efficiency, performance and optimal operation. Our 20 Series motors are built with 200°C double layer wire insulation (DN2E200) and Class H vacuum pressure impregnation, making it one of the best insulation systems available to car wash equipment manufacturers.  (Many motors manufacturers use single wire insulation and dip and bake methods which can leave voids and air pockets.)

 

In addition to strong insultation, Elektrim 20 Series motors come equipped with ultra-strong oversized bearings on both ends to add maximum protection and durability for longer, uniterrupted operation.  Learn Why Bearings Matter  

 

Elektrim Motors are field-proven powerhouses designed and manufactured by engineers for engineers, and are built to perform where others fail.  

It's why we're known as the unstoppable "blue" motor.
