Long-life, wash-down drive technology for the beverage industry
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS will showcase industry-specific drive solutions at the drinktec exhibition in Munich, Germany.
The German manufacturer draws on an extensive range of standard products with an unmatched variety of drive systems featuring aluminum cast housings optimized for wash-down. These lightweight, corrosion-proofed gearboxes, smooth-surface motors, frequency inverters, and motor starters are particularly easy to clean. NORD offers the supremely effective nsd tupH anti-corrosion surface treatment for aluminum drives, which is approved for food and drink applications in accordance with FDA title 21 CFR 175.300. nsd tupH drives are a durable, low-maintenance alternative to stainless steel or coated systems with lower total costs over the long term. Instead of applying a coating, the nsd tupH treatment hardens and penetrates deep into the alloy surface. Consequently, there is no applied material that could flake off. These drives can even be cleaned with high-pressure steam jets and can be regularly exposed to liquid media without any problems. nsd tupH drives are fitted with stainless steel standard parts as well as stainless steel output shafts by default. The non-ventilated smooth-surface motors run very quietly and do not actively contribute to spreading germs. They meet current international efficiency levels. Induction motors are available with IE2/high efficiency and IE3/premium efficiency and synchronous motors with IE4/super premium efficiency.
