Food Safety on our minds - IPPE 2018

The Food and Beverage industry is converging on Atlanta, Georgia for the annual International Production & Processing Expo, January 30th – February 1st. Stop by booth C841 while at the show to get your first glimpse at our new food safe stainless steel motor platform recently announced to the market. Today, the industry is intense, competitive and technologically challenging - from consumers to retailers, end users and machine manufacturers.

In addition, the industry is expected to comply with the strict food safety standards and is faced with the rising cost of energy, raw materials and logistics. Combining the best available materials with superior technology, food and beverage motors and mechanical power transmission components are designed to operate reliably no matter how challenging the process or application.

Baldor-Reliance Food Safe stainless steel motors - The platform is designed around sanitary equipment principles and compatible with clean-in-place (CIP) procedures. Baldor-Reliance Food Safe motors, designed with smooth contours and advanced sealing, exceed IP69K for water to maximize motor life in high pressure, sanitary cleaning environments.

Ultra-Kleen Gear Reducers - All stainless-steel gear reducers, Quantis & Tigear-2 are engineered for long life in sanitary washdown environments. Capable of withstanding high pressure washdowns and caustic chemicals, Ultra Kleen gear reducers are the ideal solution for food handling industrial applications.

Washdown Duty Ball BearingsAvailable in stainless and polymer housings, Dodge bearings are the only bearings in the industry to offer a patented triple-seal, plus a rubberized flinger called the QuadGuard sealing system. These units also include an exclusive ball retainer called the Max Life cage that helps retain food-grade lubricants and prevents washout in wet environments.
