ABB offers a specialized range of motors made from stainless steel, specifically tailored for demanding industries like meat, poultry, fish, dairy, and beverage, where stringent food safety measures are paramount. Stainless steel remains the preferred material in the food and beverage sector due to its ease of cleaning, resistance to rust, and corrosion-resistant properties.
The standout feature of these motors lies in their smooth body sanitary design, allowing for efficient in-place cleaning (CIP). This design ensures that machinery can be thoroughly cleaned without the need for disassembly, saving time and ensuring high hygiene standards are met. Moreover, the motors come equipped with a self-draining system, minimizing the risk of microbial growth, and ensuring the utmost food safety.
To further enhance the motors’ suitability for food processing environments, ABB employs H1 food-grade grease to lubricate the bearings. This ensures safe and compliant operations, as H1 food-grade lubricants are explicitly approved for potential contact with food products.
