If you are looking for a general-purpose motor for a reasonable cost, Open Drip Proof (ODP) motors may be a good option. Available in a wide range of horsepower configurations, these are used in industrial and commercial applications such as HVAC systems, pumps, appliances, blowers and more.
An ODP motor or open drip proof motor is a type of motor that usually runs cooler and does not overheat. The open chamber has vents that allow air to flow directly over the windings. An ODP motor does not need external cooling. These tend to be more efficient because the windings are cooler.
These motors are only used for indoor applications in a clean environment. While the vents provide limited protection from moisture dripping into the motor, water, chemicals, gases, or rain can enter through the vents and ruin the motor.
Drip Proof or ODP motors are almost always the least expensive motor option.
