The all-stainless HHP motors deliver the following outstanding features and benefits:

-Laser-etched, full-fact steel nameplate on the motor frame
-Anti-corrosion coating applied to the rotor and heavy polyester varnish on the stator
-Double-sealed bearings with moisture-resistant, high-temperature lubricant
