different areas. Using a geared motor Production facilities will often include Each model is offered in a standard operated through a variable speed several different environments: such painted configuration, aseptic or drive offers a range of solutions that as chilled areas, hygienic zones and stainless steel versions, which means can be tailored to each application production lines that require regular there is an available solution for in terms of power requirements and washdowns. almost any environment. Each of these environments presents MOTOR PERFORMANCE output speed. DRIVING INNOVATION its own challenges in terms of the equipment being installed. The HiflexDRIVE range can be Industrial Motion Corporation, is at the While there are a range of drive rated from IE0 to IE5. The IE5 forefront of innovation in the design solutions for each of these areas, range uses the latest in permanent and manufacture of geared motors. sourcing components from several magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) It’s modular design and engineering different manufacturers will create a technology. PMSMs offer considerably expertise has enabled it to deliver more complex situation in terms of improved efficiency when compared solutions which are tailored to meet maintenance and spare parts. to induction motors, especially under Bauer Gear Motor, part of Altra the requirements of the drinks industry. By looking at the production site as a whole, experts from Bauer can offer flexible solutions that meet the goals for efficiency, reliability and productivity. Bauer has set out to simplify this situation by developing the HiflexDRIVE range of gear motors, a modular system that can deliver excellent energy efficiency with up to IE5 motors according to IEC TS 60034-30-2. specified with electrical drive motors partial load conditions, and have the added benefit of maintaining constant speed, independent of the load. This means that the motor speed does not vary - despite overload variations or cases of voltage drop - as long as the mains frequency is kept constant. www.bauergears.com So stainless steel doesn’t rust? Tell that to our maintenance team Although stainless steel has a high corrosion resistance (a minimum 10.4% Cr in the steel makes all the difference) it is a myth that stainless steel does not rust. It can be attacked by any number of contaminants. Tools or iron components left on a bench, aggressive cleaning acids can all cause corrosion to start. 100% bio-degradable and food safe, Inoxiclean Restore is the simple solution for renovating and restoring industrial kitchens and food processing surface, leave Inoxiclean Restore to do the words FDPP2017 in the basket. it’s job, then wash away the rust.
