31 Mar When the going gets tough, the tough get going
Only the tough can survive harsh elements and that’s just what the EQM iSeries Stainless Steel Gearboxes and motors are proving at a petfood processing plant.
The plant had been using an inferior gearbox and motor made of aluminum, which was on its last legs, driving a conveyor that took petfood from a large chiller through a metal detector prior to leaving the plant.
Tim says the environment is incredibly harsh with high pressure hoses used regularly for wash downs.
He says the iSeries gearbox fitted perfectly with the IP67 motor and only had to do a slight modification to fit the torque arm mount.
“Stainless was the most suitable replacement. It will last much longer and it’s performance far exceeded the previous solution.
