Thomson/Micron AquaTRUE™ IP69K gearheads

Thomson Micron introduces our new AquaTRUE™ gearhead design to meet the strict requirements of harsh environmental applications; such as, food and beverage handling, and packaging and dispensing. The AquaTRUE's IP66/IP67 and IP69K protection is able to handle caustic cleaning chemicals as well as high pressure washdown. This eliminates the cost of additional components such as enclosers, shielding, or mechanical transmissions. The 304 stainless steel housing eliminates the concern for rust or any type of corrosion. A laser etched permanent product label and a smooth, round external housing that is designed without any external seams or corners for bacteria to collect.
