Gear­boxes for food in­dus­try

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - FOOD -

De­signed and cer­ti­fied ac­cord­ing to EHEDG (Euro­pean Hy­gienic En­gi­neer­ing & De­sign Group) rules to en­sure op­ti­mal ma­te­rial re­sis­tance and clean­abil­ity, hy­gienic de­sign gear­boxes from Treotham meet the most strin­gent re­quire­ments of the food and phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal pack­ag­ing in­dus­tries.

With their coax­ial, dy­namic plan­e­tary gear­heads avail­able in sev­eral dif­fer­ent per­for­mance classes, the gear­boxes pro­vide ro­bust­ness, re­sis­tance and clean­abil­ity.

The gear­box hous­ing is free of edges and gaps that could pro­vide a breed­ing ground for bac­te­ria or micro­organ­isms or act as dirt traps.

Just like its adapter plate, the gear­box hous­ing is man­u­fac­tured from stain­less steel 1.4404 / AISI 316L – a low car­bon steel that is ap­proved by the US FDA (United States Food & Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion) for food con­tact that of­fers high re­sis­tance to clean­ing and wash­down flu­ids such as dis­in­fec­tants con­tain­ing hypochlo­rite or chlo­ri­nated al­ka­line foam clean­ers.

All stain­less steel sur­faces of the gear­boxes are elec­tro-pol­ished with a rough­ness of ei­ther 0.8 μm Ra, as stip­u­lated for food pro­cess­ing ap­pli­ca­tions or 0.4 μm Ra, which is the ac­cepted stan­dard for the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal in­dus­try.

This sur­face treat­ment min­imises the risk of prod­uct residue and ad­he­sion.
