“They really lift the performance of the entire production process,” he says.
EQM stocks the ABI range of stainless steel gear motors which are well suited for the food processing sector because they can withstand high water pressure (1400PSI) and incredibly hot water (maximum 80 ° C).
“This is important when it comes to food hygiene and the sterilization of equipment as they can tolerate extreme changes in humidity and temperature”.
