A TEAO enclosure on a motor means "Totally Enclosed, Air Over".
TEAO motors are designed to be used solely in the airstream of the fan or blower which they are driving. As such, they are very low cost, but of limited application.
TEAO motors are constructed with a dust-tight cover and an aerodynamic body. They rely upon the strong air flow of the fan or blower which they are driving to cool them.
TEAO motors are not suitable for use in "Hazardous" environments.
