Motors - Arktic SSC Motors


Our ARKTIC SSC unit bearing motors are primarily used in commercial refrigeration evaporator fan applications, but can be used in many applications demanding high efficiency and dependability with output ratings between 2 – 38 watts.

Innovative design

50 years after launching the most efficient shaded pole motor of its time, Morrill Motors is now offering the most efficient electronically commutated unit bearing motor available. The ARKTIC SSC significantly outperforms both shaded pole and PSC technology. With efficiencies three times higher than shaded pole motors and 45% higher than PSC, in addition to the reliable and quiet unit bearing design, the ARKTIC SSC provides users the most reliable and best energy savings solution for their applications.

Optimize your performance

All of our ARKTIC SSC unit bearing motors can be sold with a variety of mounting brackets and fan blades in order to optimize airflow and system efficiency.
