Food & Drink Case Study – Geared Motors

This food supplier has changed to a NORD nsd-tupH geared motor which is IP69K, FDA approved, corrosion resistant and resistant to acids and alkalies

The Issue
The food site had severe problems with geared motors which were failing due to water ingress and flaking paint, which ended up with a loss of produce and downtime to change the geared motors. The ones they were using were lasting less than four months due to the aggressive washdown procedure.

The Solution
Ind-Tech supplied NORD nsd-tupH Geared Motors which are not only IP69K, but also FDA Approved, corrosion resistant, no penetration of corrosion even if damaged, resistant to acids and alkalis (entire PH range) and manufactured using a special process which treats the aluminium body which isn’t painted like traditional geared motors.

“Since Ind-Tech came up with this solution we have had one geared motor installed for over two years without any problems. We decided to standardise our geared motors with NORD nsd-tupH across our entire site and we continue to gain valuable time and money back with every new installation.”
