Standard operating procedure
In dry environments and for standard operating procedures, an airmotor made from cast-iron is the right solution. Here, we can offer the wide product range of the DEPRAG BASIC LINE Air Motors. For integration with robots or into machines, we offer a multitude of grinding, milling, and dril motors, which excel due to their low weight and compact design.
An airmotor used in the paper industry requires stainless steel. The DEPRAG ADVANCED LINE Air Motors made from stainless steel fulfill the highest requirements in this industry.
Airmotors used in the food industry must be resistant to cleaning agents and water vapor. The DEPRAG ADVANCED LINE Air Motors are fully sealed. All seals are made from resistant materials.
Air motors for the use in the chemical industry have to be resistant to aggressive chemicals. Please tell us below the chemicals that the airmotor comes in contact with and we select the suitable material to manufacture your airmotor. Especially in this industry, an airmotor has to be explosion proof. Your DEPRAG airmotor made from stainless steel fulfills the ATEX norm and is additionally fully sealed.
Under Water Operation
When using a pneumatic motor under water, its performance depends on how you operate your air motor and at what depth.
If the airmotor is started outside of the water and subsequently submerged in water up to a depth of 20 m, then the DEPRAG ADVANCED LINE Air Motors made from stainless steel can be used.
If the air motor starts below the water surface, then our ADVANCED LINE Air Motors can be used up to a depth of 5 m.
If you have more difficult requests or would like to use the airmotor in saltwater, then, additional modifications have to be made to the housing material, to seals and to the coating of interior parts, please contact us with more details.
Airmotors used in medical technology and the pharmaceutical industry are mostly operated under sterile conditions. Special materials assure a high lifespan despite frequent sterilization of the complete pneumatic motor.
Explosion Hazardous Areas
Due to its construction and functionality, the airmotor is the primary choice for use in explosion proof areas. The expanding air cools the airmotor during operation. In combination to gears and brakes, there are risks. For those extreme conditions, DEPRAG offers the worlds first ATEX compliant total system of airmotor, holding brake and gear box.
