Drives cater for strict hygiene
2nd Quarter 2018, Electrical switching & drive systems & components


From standard cast iron, epoxy coated surfaces to complete stainless steel units, Bauer Gear Motor provides drive solutions for a range of application requirements. Its standard drives comprise the helical gear motor Series BG, the helical bevel gear motor Series BK, the helical worm gear motor Series BS, and the shaft mounted gear motor Series BF. Its washdown duty drives are CleanDrive, AsepticDrive and AsepticDrive with mounting solutions.

Cleaning strategies incorporating the alternating use of acidic and alkaline products must be taken into account. Another problem that has to be contended with is the air turbulence generated by the drive and the associated air circulation. In addition, if the drive system is located above the product, it poses a risk of direct contamination of the entire product cycle. Proper hygiene is therefore critical, as bacterial growth on any surfaces must be avoided at all times.

Bauer’s special geared motor design features fully smooth surfaces for efficient, comprehensive cleaning. All surfaces slope by at least 3° to prevent the formation of dirt deposits, as well as allowing cleaning products to run off. The outer surfaces of the drives are coated with a paint that repels water, producing better hygiene properties than even stainless steel, which is hydrophilic. In addition, all motors are designed to comply with the latest energy efficiency rating.
