Max Guard Insulation System

The MAX GUARD insulation system combines corona resistant magnet wire and a unique low stress winding configuration, to deliver long dependable motor life under the stresses of IGBT-based variable frequency drive operation. MAX GUARD surpasses the requirements of NEMA MG1, Part 31, and is standard on BLUE MAX® and BLACK MAX® motors.

Severe duty service treatment
The severe duty service option is recommended for particularly dirty or caustic environments, or where the motor is subject to wash down as part of normal maintenance. Available on BLUE MAX motors, this treatment includes the following:

  • All cast iron construction, including fan covers if supplied
  • External and internal surfaces treated with corrosion resistant epoxy paint
  • Lead separator between frame and conduit box; Diagonally split, gasketed,
  • 4 position, NPT threaded conduit box
  • Corrosion resistant brass UL approved drain and breather
  • Hardware is zinc electrolytic
  • coated with zinc dichromate dip
