NORD Drivesystems has optimised its microsite for drive technologies designed specifically to fulfil hygiene requirements in food and beverage industries.
NORD’s microsite food.nord.com is now optimised for mobile devices such as iPhone, Android smartphones and Blackberry, allowing excellent readability and navigation. The dedicated microsite, which presents sector-specific solutions and products, provides quick access to all drive systems suitable for the food industry.
NORD's drive solutions for the food industry include wet cell versions of geared motors, which are 100% oil-tight, hygienic, and reliable. Washdown models of several gear unit types introduced by NORD in 2011 are also available on the microsite, and feature a design based on smooth surface transitions with large radii, without undercuts and dead spaces, reducing the accumulation of dirt. Cleaning liquids can be safely used on the washdown drive systems as they can be washed off easily in all installation positions.
Combined with cost-efficient smooth-surfaced aluminium motors, the gear units turn into complete hygienic solutions that can benefit from additional corrosion protection with NSDtupH surface treatment.
The NSDtupH treatment delivers corrosion protection to aluminium products similar to stainless steel models. NORD’s drive systems can be supplied customised with special feature modifications including suitability for extended temperature range operation, protective finishes with a five-year guarantee, and special lubricants.
