We recently supplied 1.2kW motors for stirring sulphuric acid to a mine in Tasmania.
The motors were going to be partially immersed in the acid, but the standard air motors are just a low grade stainless steel, which would not have lasted long.
So Deprag offered the customer a standard 1.2kW pneumatic motor, however with a high grade stainless steel body, an extra gearbox cover, stainless steel shaft as well as special shaft seals to keep the acid out of the gearbox.
So far the customer has reported that the motors are still running well ofter a year under these extreme conditions.
